Weekend Events Round-Up: Sept 7-9

Sure enough, these past few weeks have been a wild ride at our home, back-to-school, vacation, AND the tiniest pinprick leak from the water line into the refrigerator that was likely going for 2-3 weeks. Guess what? It destroyed the flooring in the kitchen and leading into the living room! Most unhappy to have my household tore up 2 days before leaving on vacation AND to come back to the mess! *sigh*

Needless to say, coming back to the chaos and getting the school week started has caused a lack of sleep, and I'm fairly certain the loss of a few brain cells - or at least I feel that way! Good intentions are one thing, but I just didn't get the weekend events round-up written and posted yesterday like I had planned. But fear not. It's here!!! Even if it is an abbreviated version. ;)

An abbreviated weekend events round-up is better than none at all right? What are you doing this weekend in Ann Arbor with kids in tow?

Looks to be a busy weekend, even if it looks like there will be a good chance of rain today and tomorrow. My daughter and I will be spending the weekend at the Michigan International Speedway for an amazing Girl Scout Jamboree and Pow Wow. What events are on your weekend planner?
