Grandma's Briefs by Lisa Carpenter - 1M ago

Oh, yeah! I’m doing it! I’m taking the summer off from blogging!

I’ll be setting up our new house, soaking up the sun on our new deck.

I’ll also be on popping in on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter now and then, too, so I hope to connect with you there.

Have a safe, spectacular summer!

Grandma's Briefs by Lisa Carpenter - 1M ago

No GRAND Social today, in recognition of Memorial Day. Just this — from https://m.facebook.com/GuardiaMike/ — which I thought was perfect. 

Best wishes for a safe, special Memorial Day with your friends and family!

Time again for some socializing! Share your links, my blogging friends. And please do visit the links shared by others.

Thank you for participating! Cheers!

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.

  • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.

  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.

  • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)

  • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).

  • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. 

  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.

  • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment, even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.

You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!

A new home!

I don’t want to say too much, for fear of jinxing things, but we found a new home!

A home that’s half the size of the one we currently live in. Which is perfect.

We are going from this…

To this…

The first week of June.

If everything—most of all, today’s inspection—goes well.

Please cross your fingers, say some prayers, send good thoughts our way.

Thank you! I’ll keep ya posted.

GRAND Social No. 352 link party for grandparents

Speaking of posts, I hope you’ll share yours here and read those shared by other grandparent bloggers.

Hooray for the GRAND Social!

How it works:

  • All grandparent bloggers are invited to add a link. You don't have to blog about grandparenting, just be a grandparent who blogs.

  • Grandparents who do not blog (or want to share something other than their own post) are welcome to add links to other posts grandparent readers may be interested in.

  • To link up a post, copy the direct URL to the specific post — new or old — that you want to share, not the link to the blog or website home page. Then click the blue button below marked "Add your link" and follow the directions.

  • I reserve the right to remove posts I feel are inappropriate. (Which hasn't happened yet, but I feel obligated to note that, just in case.)

  • Those who add links to the GRAND Social link party will be sent a weekly reminder when the party goes live. If you prefer to be removed from that email list, feel free to do so (and you'll still be more than welcome to join the party any time).

  • If adding your own post, including a mention such as This post linked to the GRAND Social to your linked posts is appreciated. 

  • The GRAND Social linky accepts posts through Wednesday evening, so please come back to see those added after your first visit.

  • If you're not a linker, you have the pleasure of being a reader. Those sharing a link would be honored to have you visit, read and, if so moved, leave a comment, even if just "Hey, stopping by from the GRAND Social." Bloggers who link are encouraged to visit and comment on the links of other bloggers, as well.

Meet Marianne!

Have you met Marianne Waggoner Day, author of Camp Grandma: Next-Generation Grandparenting—Beyond Babysitting? If not, please check out my Q&A with Marianne, my most recent Grilled Grandma.

If you’re interested in being featured as a Grilled Grandma on Grandma’s Briefs, please do let me know and I’ll get you on the schedule. Many of the regular Grand Social participants have already been grilled, but I know many of you out there haven’t. Go ahead… let me know you’re game and want to join the Grilled Grandma gang!

“I have come to understand and appreciate that grandparents come with a whole life of experience, along with wisdom and perspective. If our focus is primarily on amusing and entertaining, then we may be missing out on the greater opportunity to play a meaningful role in our grandkids’ intellectual, behavioral, and social development.”

~ Marianne Waggoner Day
