Small Successes-November 11th

Celebrating the little things in life that add up.

1. Our trip to Washington D.C., despite the first somewhat rocky day, was actually a lot of fun.  We were totally exhausted at the end of each day, but we got to see a lot of neat things.

Arlington National Cemetery

Learning about the Star Spangled Banner

The White House
2. We visited the National Shrine of the Immaculate Conception on Saturday.  It was absolutely beautiful in there.  We took a tour which was pretty much catered entirely to Madeline.  At almost every turn, the Brother who was leading the tour had little catechetical questions for Madeline and occasionally Ellie.  I think she learned a lot on the tour and she picked up two saints she can pray to for help with her school work St. Pius X and St. Joseph of Cupertino.  Madeline and I also made it to confession while we there.

Ellie and Flat Fr. Stanley

3. The laundry is under control despite the fact that it's been inconsistent with all of the traveling that has been taking place.


  1. Sounds like a fabulous trip! I've never been to DC but hope to visit in the near future. (Maybe when my boys are a little older and can appreciate it more)

  2. Great job. You were in our neck of the woods this weekend. I love the Shrine. It's such a beautiful peaceful place. I am so glad you had a good trip!
