There’s going to be a lot going on over here this summer.
We’ve got a rockin summertime learning eBook ready for the presses at the end of this week, free to all members of we teach. It’s packed full of awesome ways that every parent can sneak in a little bit of learning in their children’s summer days. Meaningful, creative activities will inspire you to get your kids involved in fun and focused play.
We’ve also got an incredible campaign in the works with two other talented professional educators and power bloggers called the Smart Summer Challenge. We’re gearing up for it now, solidifying sponsors and lining up prizes for participants–and we’ll have everything you need to keep your kids on the learning path through the bulk of the summer. We’re talking free calendars of fun activities and celebrating learning through crafts, trips, play, and games. Stay tuned.
The Smart Summer Challenge–fun and easy ways for all parents to sneak in summertime learning for their kids, keeping kids engaged, excited, and interested in learning and avoiding the summer learning slump!
We’re lining up some awesome weekend getaways with family and friends. Cool spots that are close enough and offer a ton for families.
We’re packing our pool bags (tomorrow) for the Memorial Day festivities and pool opening this weekend.
Yes, we’ve got a busy summer planned, but there’s one thing I’m not going to be worried about this year, and that is my bathing suit.
Or how I look in it.
That’s because I’ll be rockin a Lands’ End suit for the fourth year in a row. These are suits I love, suits that can handle hanging out at the baby pool without getting all crazy, full of pulls and tears, suits that don’t fall down when you’ve got two kids in your arms and your eyes on the other one over at the diving well.
These are suits that are well-made, that cover the areas I am not so confident about without making me feel like I’m an old and frumpy mom of three in my mid-30’s.
These are suits made by a company whose customer service team is made up of real, live human beings who are kind! who know what they’re talking about! who can help you find the suit you want or size you need or information you are looking for.
These are suits that totally make me happy and relaxed so I can have fun with the kids and my friends and not worry about everything that women worry about in their suits. This year, I’m wearing a suit from the new Carmel collection–the tankini top and bikini bottom–and I love it.
These are suits made by company that is celebrating women of all shapes and sizes this week, in National Swimsuit Confidence Week. Lands’ End wants women to embrace their swimsuit beauty and have fun this summer.
And if you hit the Lands’ End site now, you can even score $20 off of a $75 purchase. (Use promo code SAVE20 pin #1155. Discount ends 05/31/11; see site for details.) OR, just hang around Twitter this week and do a little tweeting to win a suit of your very own. . .

fyi: I am a blogger for the Land’s End Swimsuit Confidence Campaign, and I was given my suit by my friends at Lands’ End so I can have a bathing suit confident summer! My opinions here are all my own.
