waiting on...Wednesday {link-up #21}

While I'm Waiting...Waiting on...Wednesday link up
Welcome back to the Waiting on...Wednesday link-up - a place where you can link up what you are waiting on, going through, making, anything - as long as it's family-friendly!  :)  After you link up, please make sure to read a few others - and don't forget to tell them you found them at Waiting on...Wednesday!  

Before we start the link party, I would love for you to visit my summer service challenge - Summer of Service!  A weekly challenge that you can complete on your own or with your kiddos.  This week has a few ideas on how you can bless others with school supplies (even though it pains me to think about school starting!).  
While I'm Waiting...Summer of Service week 8: school supplies
Thank you to everyone for linking up last week!  Lots of familiar faces and some new ones too!  I appreciate each and every one of you for linking up and sharing your fabulous posts week after week!  And, now to the FEATURES!!!

You can find all the previous features pinned to the link-up party FEATURES board on Pinterest!  Follow along and you'll get a sneak peak of who the features are each week! :)
Follow Holly @ While I'm Waiting...'s board While I'm Waiting - Waiting on...Wednesday link-up party FEATURES! on Pinterest.

Just a few things to remember about the link-up:
*All topics are welcome - as long as they are created or written by you and are family friendly!  Old posts - new posts... it's up to you!  Please link to your specific post URL and not to your blog home page.
*You can link up to two posts/blog.
*Please place a link back to this link-up in either your post or on your party page so that others can link up too.
*It's a party, try to visit at least 2 other posts and show them some love!  This is the fun part!  Be inspired, inspire someone else - don't just link and run!  Leave comments (and tell them you found them on Waiting on...Wednesday!), share and pin their posts - you know, show some love!
*Each week I'll choose a few posts to feature at the next link party.  I'll also pin the featured posts to the While I'm Waiting - Waiting on...Wednesday link-up party FEATURES Pinterest board.
*If you would like to follow me, that would be awesome but it's not required.

What am I waiting on?  The big kids leave for summer camp on Sunday!  OK, that sounds terrible but it's not meant to!  No, I'm not counting the days to get rid of them - I'm just super excited because they are so excited!  I posted earlier this week about the top 10 reasons to send your kiddos to summer camp.  You can check that out here.

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you guys are enjoying your summer!

Thanks for linking up!  Have a blessed day!  Gig 'em and God bless!
Holly

    1. Me too! It does get harder the older they get though... They'll have to put up a much bigger fuss to get me to stop! :)

  7. Summer camp? is it stay away camp? Never went to one, but I did go to camp. I met so many new friends there, it was a great social place for me, and gave my mom some sanity.

    1. Yes, it's a week long sleep away camp. Truth be told, I really wish it was two weeks. Not to keep them away for two weeks but it seems like just when they are maximizing their fun, it's time for them to go home. I imagine our pick up hugs would be even better after two weeks! :)

    1. Welcome! I'm so glad you found me! The bags are just simple canvas laundry bags from Bed Bath & Beyond. Then I took them to be monogrammed. They last for about 4 years of camp! All that dragging around really takes a toll! :) Hope to see you back again soon!
