For more small success stories click on the link above.
1. Finished reading an amazing book called How to Be a High School Superstar: A Revolutionary Plan to Get into College by Standing Out (Without Burning Out) by Cal Newport. I highly recommend this book for anyone with high school age children (and the child). In a nutshell, how to spend less time padding the high school years with things that supposedly look good (numerous AP classes and extracurriculars, etc. and have more time to pursue something you are very interested in.)
2. Took my girls (along with my MIL) to see our home school co-ops play The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. It was great!
3. Cleaned up the tail end of the basement toy room alone. That's all I should say on this subject lest one of my children read this. :)
