Small Successes


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.

1. Sent the kid's most recent achievement test scores to the Superintendent of Schools. This is required by the home schooling law in Virginia and although I've always given the kids the test, I've never sent the results in. Whoops!

2. Cleaned out that stack of papers I keep in the corner of kitchen counter with old church bulletins, permission slips, library fliers and etc. We all have a pile like that, don't we? It really should be weeded through every couple of weeks, but around here it only gets done ever 3 months or so.

3. Finished the socks for Faith and made her a hat. Both are tucked away to be Christmas gifts.


  1. Isn't it amazing how those stacks can build so quickly? Our kitchen island, no matter how often I straighten it off, ALWAYS seems to be cluttered w/ paper & Legos & crumbs & whatever else gets dumped there.

  2. Love the reporting success. Was just talking to a friend who was beginning to homeschool and I told her about filing her curriculum with the county -- she was dumbfounded. They don't make the rules very clear, do they? Thank God for HSLDA!!! They've always got the homeschooler's back!

  3. Wow! Your already putting gifts away for Christmas. Impressive my dear! This is a fabulous list of successes for the week. Keep up the good work!

  4. What great successes! I'm terrible about letting papers pile up at home. I'm always afraid that the moment I get rid of something, I'll need it. It's something I'm working on, though.

  5. Yay for completing the knitting project/Christmas gift in September! That's amazing!
