The Little Things in Life: Celebrating Accomplishments

As homeschoolers there are plenty of opportunities to celebrate. For example the other day, Abigail completed one of her school books. She was given two celebrations: one with the aunts and one with her daddy and mommy. That particular night, the aunts were watching the three nieces while Nathan and Melanie had a Baby appointment (Baby is doing well, I might add). We took a delightful walk, and then we donned party hats, ate dinner, and had smoothies as our celebration treat. What accomplishment could you celebrate with your child this week? It’s not hard to create a party!

Joyfully His,
Sarah

To get this group picture, we set my camera on a share, put the timer on, and then got into position. Gotta love those hats!
