2015 Goals–February Update (better late than never)

2015 Goals

 

Spiritual

1. Do several bible studies(4-5) (starting with She Reads Truth) - I have completed one of these and plan to do their Lent study2. Continue serving on the Tech team at church – I have continued to do this one3. Memorize scripture along with Sammy for AWANA I am actually quite pleased with how well I am doing memorizing along side Sammy
 

Parenting

1. Read 4 parenting books – I am in the middle of one right now
2. Spend quality time with Sammy (outside of "school") each week – I have planned something special for each week other than when we were sick.  But even then we played games at home so I am doing well with this goal. 3. Read to Sammy everyday (at least 15 minutes) – I have done well with this goal except for a few days when we all had the flu so I am going to count this as success.
 

Homeschooling

1. Do at least 1 hands on project a week – We have done this.  Most have been real basic but Sammy has enjoyed them!
2. Go on at least 1 field trip a month – We made it to one last month.
3. Re-evaluate a few pieces of curriculum we are using 
 

Homemaking

1. Participate in Declutter 365umm I need to do a catch up day! I have been decluttering but I have not used the calendar at all!
2. Create a workable cleaning schedule and stick to it
