Small Successes-February 16th


Celebrating the little things in life that add up.

1. Bryan and I went out to lunch on Sunday with no kids.  Prior to that it had been four months since we were able to go to a restaurant kid-free.  My mom and dad had a good time watching all three girls so it was a win-win situation.  Too bad the food left much to be desired.

2. I have almost finished reading the book I started about a week ago. With baby in the house reading a book has become quite the challenge.  I suppose it will be a while before I have the luxury of reading an entire non-children's book in the span of a day or two again.

3. I made a lot of progress this week with planning for this year's VBS program.  I had a productive meeting with the arts and crafts leader and mapped out what the kids will do this year.  I'm very excited about the crafts.  I think the kids will love them.  Yesterday I sat down with the director of religious ed and got my preliminary plans for the program, crafts and snacks approved.  Oh, and I also found time on Monday to actually put the plans into a format that is not my head.  I also recruited a volunteer to make cupcakes for the children one day.  Yay!

4. Bryan and I made the decision to pursue enrolling our girls in the local parish school.   I registered them this afternoon and will wait to see if they are accepted.  Madeline has a very good chance of getting in, and Ellie is first on the second grade waiting list.  At the very least I hope that Madeline gets accepted. (It all depends on space and the academic needs of the current class.)  We should know something in the next few weeks.  I'm praying that a spot opens up for Ellie as well.  I was told by the advancement director that if we had registered 15 days ago she likely would have been accepted.  Sigh.


  1. Great week mom! I can't believe you are soo on top of things with VBS. You rock! Care to share some of the craft ideas with the blog-o-sphere?

  2. Awesome job. thanks for sticking with this even though it often takes me several days to get by to visit. It is always heartening when I get to see what everyone is up to.
