New Year's GOALS

Hey, look! I'm actually updating my blog just a day after my last post! 

I like to say "goals" rather than "resolutions" because it makes me feel more like I'm working toward something. For me, a "resolution" carries the stereotype of aiming for something I most likely won't reach. But a goal? That's something I can accomplish. I know, it's all in my head, but whatever. 

So I worked on my three main goals for the year last night, and the kids all (except Miss G) came up with some goals of their own. Here are mine: 

Spiritual: Memorize a verse a week with the kids (at least during the school year).
Physical: Complete another 1/2 marathon, but if my body doesn't hold up during training, complete a 10k in 55 minutes or less.
Social: Accomplish my "2 letters per month" goal from last year and pull off at least two successful adoption events at our church.

Mr. C's goals:
1. Find bugs around our property
2. Copy down a page of the Bible every day

J-Man:
1. See God's creation more
2. Pray every night

M-Dog:
1. Help mommy with the dishes more
2. Read my Bible more

N: 
1. Be good and not break things so that Nana and Papa give us toys for Christmas next year!*

*I thought this was so funny. Superman's parents decided to not give the kids toys this year because they often get SO much, and being that we have so many small kids, things are constantly being broken. We told the kids they are too rough on their toys and that they don't appreciate the stuff they already have, so they really didn't deserve any new toys. So in lieu of gifts, Papa is going to take each of the boys twice to the snow to their favorite snow-place, "Planet Kids." I thought it was a great idea. Apparently N missed getting toys! Hmmm...wonder what this year will bring??
