Your neighbourhood around the world

    1. Is this "blog carnival" open for others as well, even though all the slots are full?

    2. Signed up =) My kids LOVE this series.

    3. Such a great series! I'm always curious what the comparisons are of every day type things around the world!!

    4. This is so great! I will love sharing this with my children. Thank you to all who are participating!

    5. I love this idea- brilliant. I'm in.

    6. This is so wonderful! I just have to wait until August, 2014! Too bad I am totally not a patient person. I'll be enjoying everyone's neighborhoods while I wait. Thanks!

      1. Thank you for signing up. It gives you time to find the perfect pics!!

    7. I'd like to sign up, but it depends on your definition of 'neighbourhood'. If the pictures have to be taken really nearby, it will be woods, woods and some more woods...

      1. It can be as wide or as narrow as you like. Obviously, we all live in very different communities and woods are fine too!!

    8. Annabelle I love this series. Great idea and nice job pulling it all together!

    9. Oh my gosh I love this! I am going to sign up and then read all the other posts!!
