Small Successes-May 6th

Celebrating the little things in life that add up.

1. After spending at least 15 tedious hours making a movie in iVideo for my kindergarten CCD class, I had an almost perfect almost 19 minute long video.  I put the photos the kids took of their adventures with Flat Father Stanley (our class mascot) to music that goes with the curriculum our parish uses.  I'm amazed at how much time it took to do this.  Hopefully this will be an easier task next year.  I'm going to stay on top of the video on a weekly basis so I'm not overwhelmed with it at the end.

2. It's not really my success, per se, but the caterpillars that we got almost two weeks ago are finally all in a chrysalid.  One of them was a late bloomer and proved to be a royal pest to the other caterpillars after they transformed. I removed the pre-butterflies from their food container yesterday and placed them in their butterfly house.  Perhaps I'll have butterflies in my dining room this time next week.

3. Ellie passed her kindergarten screening with no problems.  I can't believe she's going to be in full day school next year.

Bonus: Yet another success that isn't exactly mine, a few more plants have sprouted in my little germination station.
