Celebrate the small things



Celebrate the Small Things is the fun weekly meme hosted by Viklit @ Scribblings of an Aspiring Author, where bloggers share things they wish to celebrate, and then hop around to other bloggers to rejoice in their celebrations, too. :) Go HERE to sign up and join the celebration!






*My oldest son's cross country team qualified at Sectionals and is headed to Regionals.  So proud of him, and the team as a whole. They've worked really hard to achieve this.






*My two middle sons finished their projects, both due on the same day, but from different time periods. One made an Egyptian death mask, while the other made a Miami Tribe village. We learned a lot about King Tut, how the Miami Indians lived, and about... "papier maché." :D

*My youngest son has a fish now. He chose a red betta and named him Mr. Fishy and Capt. Jack Sparrow, depending on the day. LOL






*I had a nice time at the craft get together with Dani. 
We made wreaths. I went with an Autumn one for my front door. We also ate yummy snacks and had girl talk. I think it's important to decompress and just hang out, which is great for ones spirit. :)








What are your celebrations for the week?
