Well, here we are at the end of the year already! Last year, I decided that I would post my goals once a month as well as evaluate my progress. This has actually been such a good exercise for me that I am going to do it again. By no means have I finished everything on my list but I have definitely done a lot more this year than I would have otherwise. To keep it from being too long, I'm going to just focus on evaluating my past month then look at last year in another post and then share what I would like to work on next year in a third. So, how did December go?
2. Go through Truth in the Tinsel (10 days of it) with Jonathan.
This was a wonderful study for Jonathan, just the right amount and very hands-on, which is right up his alley. This is the first year he was able to grasp the characters and story. This morning, he asked me how Jesus ended up being on a cross and up in heaven if he came at Christmas as a baby. I know what we're going to be focusing on next!
Wow, this book was amazing. I think I'd like to go through it somehow with our homeschool group or a group of moms. I also was able to read Queen of the Home, edited by Jennifer McBride and Decorating Dreams on a Budget by Emilie Barnes and Yoli Brogger. Oh, and for fun (for myself), I read the four Sherlock Holmes novels: A Study in Scarlet, The Sign of the Four, The Hound of Baskerville, and The Valley of Fear. Lots of reading this month!
Completed! We read The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes and The Memoirs of Sherlock Holmes. Once we started, we were addicted!
Getting back into the exercise routine...except for Christmas day, I have been getting up by 5:30 or earlier and getting in at least half an hour in Tuesday through Saturday!
9. Set new goals for 2013 (!!!).
In another post!
Didn't get to this one. But as a sneak peek: next year, my goal is to go out with one of them each month, 3 times for each of them in the course of the year.
