Small Success Thursday

Small Success Thursday

I think it quite fitting that I start with a inspiring quote that reflects the moment,even if it doesn't seem to reflect anything related to my small successes :)

Don't be a thermometer, be a thermostat. Thermometers only measure the temperature around them. Thermostats change it.

Discovering home education websites that are local and relevant for our family so that I can finally start our home education journey
The huge pile of folding that needs to be tackled
More Mundane:
The rest of the chores that I need to 'catch up'
Looking back on pictures of the kids when they were younger, its amazing how fast the years are passing by
Watching Kadee trying to round up the chickens, legs and arms spread wide, yelling NO NO, so much confidence for her age :)
Always a Treat:
My brother buying me a chocolate bar, that I have never bought before because I thought I wouldn't like it, but I have now discovered it could be a new favourite
Good News Even if it's Not Great News:
Finding out that it was due to rain on birthday in a few weeks time, which means a reschedule as I am going to hire a jumping castle.....but I want to reschedule for warmer weather so we can fully enjoy ourselves :) I'm going to be the same age for the whole year so I don't mind when we celebrate :)

Head over to Chocolate for Your Brain for more Small Successes!


  1. You have such a beautiful family! Looking forward to meeting you at a home schooling activity!

  2. Took time to figure out how to comment, but you had an awesome week. One question though: What type of chocolate did your brother buy that is now your favorite?

  3. Hi SherryTex! it was a Whittakers Chocolate Slab Peanut really yummy and didn't leave me feeling yuck! lol!
