Talk About Small Successes
I admit, this week I've been a bit pre-occupied with the end of summer and the beginning of the new school year. I am really reaching to squeeze three successes to post this week, but here is what I've eked out:
1) Our parish has a fantastic Labor Day Festival every year. Wingnut had to fly, which meant I took all six of our offspring to the festival, bought them a bunch of tickets, and set them free to enjoy carnival fare, games, and pony rides. We had so much fun! I even managed a few quick visits with friends.
2) We began our school year on Tuesday. For the most part it went pretty well. A couple of the children need to work on attitudes, and Lil' Wingnut needs to get used to playing on his own for a bit each morning, but they did pretty well diving right in this week.
3) We had planned to hit Confession as a family on Saturday, but Lil' Wingnut began his day with an upset tummy and a little vomiting. Undeterred, I took the older 4 to Confession and then to Mass, leaving Special K and Lil' Wingnut at home with Wingnut.
I was able to find three. Good for me! Come leave your small successes at Faith and Family Live.
