Small Successes

Sherry at her blog, Chocolate for Your Brain, hosts Small Successes each Thursday. Check it out to see others' successes & share your own. Recognizing the small things we accomplish each week helps us realize that even when it doesn't seem like it, we are getting things done!

1) I said, "Yes," when the boys asked if two of their cousins could spend the night last night. They've been asking All. Summer. Long. but the timing has never been right.

2) We received the computer from Connections Academy last week. We bought an inexpensive computer desk for it & I got it all set up on Monday in the school (w/ The Archangel's eagerness in helping...he's SO excited to start next month). I also got most of the schoolroom organized, including a place for all the munchkins' textbooks & supplies.

3) I forced myself to do a few tasks that I don't like to do...some weeding of the garden (mostly around the veggies that have managed to survive the heat) & scrubbing part of the shower. Both were not completed (& at this rate, may never be completed!), but I saw the need & just did it. The Princess helped some w/ the garden & we talked about the Gospel from a couple weeks ago when the man sowed his seeds & his enemy later planted weeds so that the wheat & weeds grew together. She is so like a sponge when it comes to discussing faith!

BONUS: I didn't catch this a couple of weeks ago, but I've hit the 100 mark on posting my "Small Successes." I LOVE this meme each week!
