Picnic Table Talk: Summer Highlights

Welcome! New to ABC and 123?
Please check out our FAQ in the left sidebar.

We've had a great Summer Prize Picnic with all of you! Thank you to everyone who has participated in our weekly Picnic Table Talks. We've enjoyed getting to know the members of our community better and it's been fun visiting new blogs too. We hope you've all enjoyed our weekly giveaways too, we'd like to thank all of the fabulous companies who sponsored this season long event.

This week for our final Picnic Table Talk we'd like to do a time honored beginning of the school year writing exercise with you. Namely, the "What I did on my summer vacation..." assignment. Only we hope you'll all be excited to share some of the fun things you've done with your families. You can choose to do a new post, using one of the ideas we've given below:

Summer Wrap Up
~Give us a wrap up of your summer highlights
~What was your favorite trip?
~What did you learn this summer?
~What do you do to document your summer vacations/memories?

Or you can link up to a post you've already done about on a special family outing, vacation, or activity. Just make sure you add to that post, that it's been added to ABC & 123's Picnic Table Talk and link back to this post. That way readers can find their way back to the Mck Linky.

We can't wait for you to share your summer memories with us!

Just because this is our last Thursday featured Picnic Table Talk, it doesn't mean we won't be sharing and visiting anymore! We're going to add a new feature on alternating Saturdays called Show & Tell Saturday. We'll provide the Mck Linky and you can hop on and link to any post on your blog that you want to share with the community. Now you can share your favorite activities right away and not have to wait until your submission fits in with our posting schedule.

Now that our the summer is wrapping up, we'll be returning to our normal posting schedule. It'll be more activity and lesson driven but we'll continue to host giveaways with companies we think our readers would be especially interested in or benefit from knowing about. We hope you're ready for a get back into the school routine with us! A new session begins September 14th!
