4 Simple Goals
I'm joining in with the "Four Simple Goals" challenge over at Elsie's blog. Basically, everyone is posting positive, simple goals that they want to complete by the new year and then rewarding them self when they're completed.
1. Spend more time playing with my kids. I love holding my kids, snuggling, reading to them, but, honestly, I rarely get down on the floor and just play with them. So, I want to be intentional about this everyday. And, spend less time on the computer when the kids are awake.
2. Do more "fun" activities for homeschool. Last year it was all I could do to get through phonics and math, especially second semester with a newborn. This year I want to do weekly science, social science, and Bible along with the classes Judah will be doing at school.
3. Plan my meals each week again. I'd like to plan them on Fridays so I can shop for ingredients at the Farmer's Market on Saturdays.
4. Regular date nights. With the kids taking most of our attention I think it's so good to have some time just to focus on each other.
I'll update as my goals progress AND with my rewards- best part, right? Want to join in?
