The Simple Dollar Weekly Roundup: Kids of Carcassonne Edition

My four year old son and three year old daughter have been playing the board game Kids of Carcassonne almost constantly the last several days. They’ve roped grandparents into playing it, parents into playing it (I’ve played it countless times), and are even playing it just against each other.

I couldn’t be prouder.

This week, I tried to link to some blogs that I haven’t linked to before. There are a lot of good people out there writing personal finance stuff and I tend to link more to sites of the people I read frequently. This week, I made an effort to explore some other sites.
