I'm a little late for Small Successes, but thought I'd try to jot down three things anyway.
1. Second Son is fully recovered from the chicken pox. It was not that bad. I think it's almost easier to deal with babies in this situation because he couldn't scratch. Still, I hope the vaccinations hold the others so they don't catch it. (Or should I say "catch them?")
2. We had our last faith formation class this week. It's a bit like a co-op with other homeschooling families in the area. I ended up with a little more responsibility than I had planned at the beginning of the year, but it all turned out well in the end. My kids are already looking forward to next year.
3. I went to my first homeschool used book sale. I bought a used copy of The King of the Golden City, which is great because I'm not sure I want to use it next year so I was debating a lot with myself about purchasing it. (I particularly like this copy because of the illustrations. First Son and First Daughter like everything better if it has illustrations.) I also found, thanks my good friend over at House of Brungardt, a used copy of the teacher's guide for Jesus Our Life. A new one including the changes for the mass comes out this summer. I really wanted to buy that one, but this is much better. I already had the old version of the student text. Now they'll match and I spent hardly any money. (I then promptly spent much more than that on a few orders last night. I do so love buying books. It's one of the benefits of homeschooling. Expensive, though.)
