Celebrate the Small Things 3/15





It's time to Celebrate the Small Things hosted by the lovely Vikki @Scribblings of an Aspiring Author. Visit her site to join and to read what other bloggers are celebrating!

My celebrations this week:



  • My 10 yr old made the travel baseball team in our area. For this travel team, he had to try-out. That was a big step for him because he's shy, and he's only ever had his dad as a coach. This means he'll be on two teams now, which will make for a busy boy, but he loves the sport and as long as his grades stay up, I'm all for it. Plus, he cheesed ear-to-ear when he found out he made the travel team. It was priceless.
  • My two youngest boys have been gobbling up books like candy. I LOVE this. The best part? They are letting me read to them and are reading back to me. <3
  • I received my Invisalign this week. As a teen, I had braces for 2 1/2 years, then had a retainer... which I lost years ago. Yeah. So Invisalign will help. No more covering my hand over my mouth when I laugh or smile. Woot woot! :)

What celebrations do you have for this week?

  11. I love that you're finding the small things to celebrate. It's actually quite healthy! :)

    I'm stopping by today from the A to Z challenge. Congrats on signing up! Good luck. This is my first year with the A to Z challenge, even though I've watched it grow over the last 3 years. I'm also taking part in the Reveal on the 21st. I'm trying to share some positivity with my #WriteMotivation friends on Twitter (and to help keep me positive in the process)
    Hope to see you around. :)
