Wednesday Festival: Back to School Edition

Many of us are writing about Back To School ... for ourselves, our kids, kids we know. Here in my neck of the US woods, Monday was our first day of public school, and the first day of class at the University that employs me. (Can you see me in the picture? I'm the happy rabbit!)

In this spirit, Deb did some musing on the official list of characteristics of the Beloit College Class of 2011. Go see!

Earthchick waxes rhapsodic about the joys of the public library here, with a follow-up post about the library, Anne of Green Gables, and made-up preschooler words here.

Deb says, "I'm striving to be honest in who I am and how I live my live before God and before the church... I participated in a synchroblog on prayer (part of one on Emerging Women)." She has also found a great shampoo for those of you with teenagers! (or maybe all of us!)

Lorna is back at seminary in Estonia and paying attention to the signs. She also shares about two amazing artists she's found, and thinks about another amazing artist and humanitarian, Bono.

Abbey of the Arts is leaving us an invitation to poetry! (Why, thank you, I'd love to!)

Shawna shares two wonderful pieces of writing: her sermon on the past week's Gospel text and the introduction to her future book, Career Women of the Bible. Your input welcomed!

Sally shares a book review on Butterfly in Brazil. She also gives us her thoughts from a summer school course on The Gospel and Western culture. And, finally, a Dave Walker cartoon for you Facebook fans.

Edited to add: Whoops! One I missed, and I am TRULY sorry and do humbly repent. Mitch is a Pastor's Husband (look for more on him in Monday's Meet & Greet) and this week he is wondering what to call his wife when she is at work? Welcome, Mitch!

Hope you all have a wonderful day, no matter what it brings you.
