February Edition of The Family Life Blog Carnival- Part One

Welcome to the February Edition of The Family Life Blog Carnival. There a wide variety of articles this month and we're pleased with the great response that we've had in submissions. I don't know the number of submissions that I received but it was over 100. I"ll be running a part two to February's edition due to the large number of submissions that I received, so stay tuned! I was please to see some nice activities that can be done with our kids in this edition. There are some articles about Weddings and Divorce in this issue but because the nuclear family doesn't apply to many families today, it made sense to do so. The next edition regular edition is planned for middle of March. If you have any suggestions for things that you'd like to read about or any other input, feel free to leave a comment.
