My Small Successes XX

It's Thursday and I'm back with some Small Successes.

1. We hosted five children of fellow homeschooling friends who needed some caregivers on Tuesday and Wednesday this week. I was a little nervous at the thought of eight children under my care (with Kansas Dad's help on Wednesday), especially since the ages were a little overwhelming (12, 6, 6, 4, 3, 2, 20 months, 10 months), but everything went wonderfully! We didn't have any injuries and I think all the kids had fun playing together. Their amazing 12 year old basically took care of the baby as she cried horribly every time I looked at her, so I didn't even have extra diapers or bottles.

2. I finally finished going through all the kids' clothes in the closet, putting everything in the appropriate boxes. I even dug through all their drawers for the winter clothes and replaced them with spring clothes. We sent three boxes out to sell or donate, too.

3. I downloaded the pictures for March from my camera to the computer. Yes, that's right, a whole month of pictures. You may have noticed the drabness of the blog recently. I have not, of course, actually gone through any of the pictures, but this is a post about small successes. I have a little work to do on those. (I also still have all the pictures I ordered for Second Daughter's baby album still waiting to be placed in the actual album. I'll finish it eventually...)

Head over to Faith & Family to read more Small Successes!


  1. I still have pictures on the camera from 2008, so I'd say a month is pretty awesome :D.

    Congrats on watching 8 kids at once! I'd've been a little terrified but sounds like you had some major success there.

    Blessings on a great week!

  2. I am hoping to get my pictures in albums to! I've got to get back to it before ot gets completely out of control. Good for you!

  3. So I went to actually open my photo files and I'm getting an evil message from Photoshop about my scratch disk. So now I have to do a little research and computer clean-up before I can deal with the pictures. Arg!

    I really really try to handle the pictures each month because once I get behind I end up REALLY behind.


Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
