"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."STILL no significant school planning (I'm even procrastinating about panicking!), but I did take care of some tasks for my children this week:
- Yesterday Joseph and I went shoe shopping, just the two of us. It sounds mundane, but I enjoyed his company as we worked our way through 3 stores, trying to find just the right combination of quality, fit, and price. Walking away with new shoes on Joe's feet was a satisfying accomplishment for both of us.
- I mailed David's first care package on Monday, and he picked it up on Wednesday! He had requested Bananagrams, all three LOTR movies, Ladyhawke, and The Princess Bride. Okay, they're not study materials, but at least it sounds like his new friends are interesting.
- For Lauren's birthday dinner I made chicken picatta, one of her favorites and one of the few foods she requested before her trip. The only item left is cinnamon rolls. After another failure with frozen dough, I am baking a fresh batch today. We'll have them for dessert tonight, just before driving to the airport. Did I mention procrastination?
