It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that.
Hmm….I need to post more in between Thursdays otherwise all everyone’s going to see are these flower stickers. 😉
1) We turned in our 7-day rental library books on time. Huzzah! Of course, those two happened to be the Rascal’s favorite, so now he is requesting them daily. Looks like another trip to the library soon.
2) I gave Trooper and the Rascal haircuts all by myself–they no longer needed their Daddy to keep them in the chair. 😉 So that is a success for all of us.
3) Another family-wide success–we finished our first year of homeschooling. It was quite an adventure. Looking back, it’s fun to see how much the boys learned, and are still learning. Trooper especially has come a long way since August. Of course, I think I learned a lot myself. Not about the alphabet and colors, obviously, but about my sons’ individual learning styles, and about keeping reasonable expectations. Trooper will still be having “lessons” over the summer with life skills and readiness, and Rascal has some workbooks to keep him busy until August. I am already excited about the new school year. 🙂
