"It’s important for moms to recognize that all the small successes in our days can add up to one big triumph. So on Thursday of each week, we do exactly that."

As of Tuesday night (one week after my little injury) my finger had still not improved at all since seeing the doctor. Since I have always had such great success with Arnica (when my children get hurt/bruises), I decided to try taking Hypericum (for Nerve Injury). My finger is already at least 60% better after just 4 doses and I was able to remove the splint! Homeopathic medicines are amazing!

I made it one year and one week with out having to pay for diapers (for Snuggles) thanks to a special promotion Amazon ran last year!! Even though it did take a bit of work to earn (I registered for everything from food, to school books, to all my children's Christmas gifts, to help earn the special), and a little adjusting to the "dirty" (chlorine-free) look of the Seventh Generation Diapers, it was so worth it in the long run. I now have sticker shock from having to actually pay and budget for diapers again.

Inspired by Jen I set up an art center in my new school room. I was even able to find some cute little trifle glasses. I would still like to order some Modeling Beeswax (any suggestions for where to find the best price with low/no shipping?) for the girls to use this year as they study Along the Alphabet Path, and I also plan to replace the crayons and pencils with some of Jen's suggestions as ours get used up. I think it looks so pretty and my children just LOVE the easy access and are using it daily even though it is summer. It makes me smile every time I look at all the bright colors, nice and organized... Thank you Jen!
