Summer Goals 2012

Well, after a week of talking about it, we finally got around to writing down those Summer Goals.   We had a great Memorial Day...slept in, went for a bike ride, took a cute friend shopping, went to our annual pool party at the King's.  And then at 8:30 tonight, when we were all sitting in the same room in the house at the same time, the Scout Master had a great idea to have Family Night!!  It was super song, no real lesson...we just talked about having some priorities for the unscheduled days ahead, so that we don't get to the end of them and wonder what we've done.  

The kids are used to this exercise, so they've been thinking about what they want to accomplish this summer.  It's kind of funny to see how different their lists almost every way.  Some of us are totally into technology and can't break away from our iPhones for longer than 5 seconds.  And some of us are still great with a piece of paper and a purple marker.  

Along with the kids' individual goals, we also set some family goals for the summer...'s a short list...more expectations than goals, really.  But with mostly teenagers in this house and a lot of individual activities happening, I felt like we needed to make FAMILY a priority this summer.  I may not see them during the day, but I want to see them at dinner and at night before bed.  And the Scout Master thought it would be fun to throw in a little planned, family exercise time, too.  Last night we started with 10 sit ups and 10 push ups each.  TCD has been delegated the official boot camp director for our 10 minute workout, so we'll see what the next few weeks bring.  Hopefully by the end of the summer, we'll feel a little more connected as a family, we'll be a little farther through the Book of Mormon, and we'll be a little healthier.

Three more days...have I mentioned that I can't wait for summer to get here!!
