Small Successes :: September 24, 2009

"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."

I found and purchased a paperback copy of Ranger's Apprentice Book 8 at Book Closeouts for only $2.24!    This book is not scheduled to be released until May 2010 here in the US according to the Pre-Order Page at Amazon.  I wasn't sure if it would arrive with my order or not, but sure enough it arrived today, along with a number of other bargain priced books!!

I only spent $36.38 including shipping at Book Closeouts (using a coupon code for $5.00 off a $35.00 Purchase ~ Coupon: sunshine Password: Expires: Nov 30, 2009 ) and my order included ALL of the following:
My children are going to be thrilled!

I made a Fire Safety Lap Book with my girls and talked (with all our children) about what we need to do if there is ever a fire in our home.  I will try and post a couple pictures of the Lap Book soon.

What are your Small Successes this week?

Stop by Faith and Family Live to read more of this week's Small Successes.


  1. Great Job on those deals! I, too, LOVE good deals! i can't wait to see your fire safety book. that is one thing we have to work on with our kids too. :)

  2. Great successes this week! I love getting new books and saving money while doing it is icing on the cake!

    Can't wait to see the fire safety lapbook.

    Thanks for sharing with us. God bless!

  3. My son Lowden LOVED the Rangers Apprentice series. I am sad there are no more offered.

  4. Book Closeouts sounds like a great site!!

    And speaking of books, I was looking at your October books on the sidebar that you added recently and thought maybe you'd have a good recommendation since it looks like you have read so many Catholic children's books... if you had to choose just a few, what are the best Catholic children's books for preschool-aged children? I have seen a lot of people recommending The Weight of a Mass and Take it to the Queen... I am looking specifically for books for ages 2-5 right now, and as our public library has very few Catholic books and I don't have a lot of real-life Catholic parents around me, I thought I'd reach out to the cyber-world for advice! ;)

  5. The fire safety plan is perfect for F week! What a great idea!

  6. Too bad about the magic tree house. My boys love em!

  7. I am looking forward to your fire safety lap book too. Last year I did a few days of safety to start our year, and need to do that again. I try to incorporate at the start of each year, that way I make sure we cover it.
    Thanks for sharing the fire photos! Thankful your hubby is back home safe too!
