I love your pet posts! I always enjoyed having hermit crabs in the classroom as a Montessori teacher. That was back in the 70s and 80s, so I don't remember all the details of hermit-crab care. I featured your post and photo in my Montessori Care of Pets post at Living Montessori Now:

I love outdoor kitchens, and the food your children created is beautiful! It looks like you have a family of talented artists! I featured your post at the Living Montessori Now Facebook page and pinned it to my Exploring Nature Pinterest board at
I really admire your commitment to running, Jill! I'm not a runner, but I have a fitness challenge of my own for October (my birthday month). Here's my post for Fitness Friday: Do You Have a Fitness Challenge?

How awesome, Jill! I'm so impressed with all the running you do! I work out regularly but mainly rebounder, Zumba, Pilates, and Power Plate - nothing as rigorous as running. My daughter, Christina, just told me about your Fitness Friday Blog Hop. Even though I follow you, I was on vacation and on the computer less this summer. So I somehow missed it. I don't always blog about fitness, but I do blog a lot about motivation at I'll try to link up here when I have a post that seems relevant. I was already following you on Facebook and Twitter. Now I'm following you via GFC and Pinterest, too!
