Small Successes-Back to School


Celebrating the little things in life that add up.

1. Madeline started fourth grade and I did my best not to freak out that next year I am faced with two options. 1. Send her to the middle school.  (Isn't that a bit like feeding your child to a pack of hungry wolves?) 2. Homeschool. (This option will likely cause me to permanently lose my sanity and my hair.)  So far the school year is going well for her.  The teacher likes her and she likes the teacher.  That's always a good sign in my book.  She's happy to be back in school, and I am adjusting nicely to having to be up and ready to leave the house by 8:30AM.  177 school days to go until summer!

2. Ellie started Kindergarten yesterday.  I didn't cry or get all sentimental as I sent my baby off to school.  I did freak out when I realized that I forgot it was show and tell day, so I rushed back to the house after dropping her off to gather some show and tell items for her.  Ellie was thrilled to start school again.  She begrudgingly gave me a kiss goodbye when I dropped her off.  She's so independent, and I think just my being in the classroom was cramping her style.

3. The laundry is washed, ironed and folded.  Some of it still needs to be put away but it's finished.

I noticed that this is my 500th post on the blog.  I don't think I would have believed that I would have blogged this much when I started this blog a little under a year and a half ago.  I'll count this as success, too. ;)


  1. Congrats on post 500! Hope the girls have a great school year.

  2. But what in the world will you do, with both girls in school? (wink)

    I was completely freaked out by the thought of my oldest in middle school ...we start at 6th grade here. It's a foreign concept for me, as I went 1st - 8th grade in the same school, then off to high school.


  3. Congrats on the 500th post! I love stopping in on Thursdays to celebrate your successes. Great week! #3 is one close to my heart. LOL!

  4. Congrats on 500! :) That is quite a milestone!

    Blessings on your family as the girls go back to school :).

  5. Those back to school pictures are adorable!
