The new year always signifies a new beginning! New beginnings mean a fresh start, a clean slate, and a chance to set new goals, visit new places and meet new people. In years past I have viewed new years resolutions as setting oneself up for failure. Mostly because it is so easy to set unrealistic goals, and no real plan to achieve them. This year I feel a little bit different though. I have a mindset that is ready for a new year, and ready to brush off some ambition! 🙂
What are some of your new year resolutions?
Here are a few of mine:
1)Practice piano more consistently. 2) Think about and make a plan for future career goals. 3) Find a sport or activity that will help with getting into better physical shape. (I’ve always wanted to try racquetball!) 4) Travel somewhere I haven’t been before. 5)Create more date nights with Andrew.
We wound up our Christmas season by celebrating with my parents and sister and brother in law. We all had a very blessed Christmas! Spending time with family, and playing games is my favorite. Also, my aunt Carol, cousin Jessica and her beautiful, sweet kids stopped by to visit us! Seeing them was such a treat! I hadn’t seen them in person in quite some time.
If this year goes by as fast as the first couple weeks, the year will be gone in a jiffy! After having about three weeks off from school, we had to get back into the routine of getting up and getting ready for school again. The kids had their awards ceremony for last semester. David received the A/B Honor Roll award, and Emma received the award for mastering all her letters and sounds. She is starting to read pretty good too! I’m a proud Mama! 🥰
There has been a few warm days this January, and whenever there are warm days in winter, one should always try to take advantage of it! We did just that by taking the kids to the zoo! They still had their zoolumination lights up. It was spectacular, even in the day time! We enjoyed spending the day together, outside, and seeing some pretty amazing sights and animals.
This past week was spent handing out Tylenol and Motrin to sick kids! UGH!!! One of the worst things about winter! David had a fever and headache and missed a couple days of school. Samuel then also had a fever, and missed school too. Audrey had a little fever too, but hers has been mostly congestion. Fortunately, the rest of us seem to have escaped the germs, at least for now.
Happy New Year!
