Visiting the Coach: #2



Some of you may remember the 6-word challenge Coach Eli posed to us earlier in the year?  Well he's done it again!  It's basically a group of bloggers who get together to answer a question with 6 words (no more, no less), and came about because of Hemmingway's assertion that any story could be told in that many words.   It's fun to participate in, and a great (and sometimes hilarious) read!

The story to tell this time is:  Summer Vacation with Kids, in Six Words. If you've got a sec,, head on over and take a look (and say hello while you're there, I'm sure he'd appreciate it). :)

You can find the post here:

If you already know Eli, you know his blog is a fun place to hang out. If you're new, poke around a bit: I think you'll like his insightful, heartfelt, sometimes punny outlook on family and life.

Note to Coach: Thanks for the include. I love this project and its theme this time around. Vacationing is one of my all-time favorite things (said Rosey always).

  1. Rosey - thanks so much for the shoutout, and for participating. This time, I think you've nailed it to perfection with the clip art!

    1. You have a house full of females, so I'm guessing it's the luggage that is so spot-on. ;)

  2. Thanks for sharing this new blog to check out! I think that 6-word project is so different and fun. I usually spend way too much time writing up and editing a blog post, so it's sometimes nice to just have one be short and sweet.

    1. Those are fun too, but I bet it takes Coach quite awhile to organize and post from all those different people. ;)

      I like light, short posts sometimes too, Kera.
