Hello, Kidlitosphere! (If it’s not clear, that’s supposed to sound like someone on stage yelling, “Hello, Minneapolis!”–but fill in your own city!)
Today is Stop 4 on my Meet My Family blog tour!
I’m visiting Linda Mitchell today at A Word Edgewise, to celebrate family traditions. (You might know Linda as a big-hearted presence here on 15 Words or Less Thursdays!) This book is a celebration of families of all kinds! Even with my family’s oddness and anti-social-ness, I do have some great childhood memories. I’m sharing one of our holiday traditions, and Linda is talking about a wonderful adoption day tradition in her family. Look at that beautiful family picture of hers–a family knitted together by love more than blood. I hope you’ll stop by to read and perhaps share one of your own treasured family traditions. Especially since Linda posted today to accommodate me, even though I had misunderstood something about the schedule!
And here are the first 3 stops, in case you missed them!
