Small Successes


1. Hosted two tea parties this week for 2 of my daughters and their friends.

2. Hosted a neighborhood boys hot dog/hamburger party for 3 of my boys and 3 of their friends.

3. Started cleaning up the basement.

4. Took all 7 kids (and the 2 that Anna babysits) to the zoo, we even left at 10:00 because we decided this last minute. That is way out of my comfort zone, I like to plan ahead, leave early, and get back home before rest time.

5. Took the time to play with our toy trains with my dh after the kids went to bed. It was A LOT of fun. We should do that more often.

Awww! The train thing sounds like fun. I cannot see you going to the zoo last minute. Were you trying to check some of the kiddos you brought with you in? tee hee.....

yep - so unlike me. In fact, when Nathan brought up the idea at 9:30 I said, "No way, it's already 9:30, we just can't." As if they close at 10 or something. Glad we went. No major issues, no one got overly tired. It was a lot of fun!
