Some Goals and Intentions for 2012

I've finally had time to sit down and articulate some of the things I would like to work on in our family during this coming year.   It's a rather long list, and I may not get to all of them this year.  And that's OK!  Accomplishing at least some of these things will be good.   And I figure better than having them swirl around in my head driving me crazy. =)  So, in no particular order, here they are:

- Work on specific areas of habit/character training. (I have them listed in my personal record, but would rather not publically elaborate on my children's faults.  I mean, you wouldn't like it if I wrote about your faults on my public blog, now would you?!)
- Establish helping with cooking as part of our chore routine.
- Establish a dinner clean-up job for each person as part of our chore routine. (We already do this at breakfast and lunch.)
- Re-establish weekly or biweekly family activity nights.

- Continue to read about whole foods diets and preparation and incorporate those things that I feel will be beneficial to our family into my cooking practice.
- Increase protein content and decrease carbs in our breakfast and snacks.
- Plan ahead for meals on Sundays.

- Incorporate some form of strengthening and conditioning exercise into my routine.
- Establish some computer usage boundaries.

- Keep better records (hence, this blog)
- Do nature study more regularly.

- Brainstorm (and implement!) specific ways that I can support Dan in the issues he struggles with.
- Be more intentional and united in our parenting and family disucssions.

- Study Scriptures and pray daily over areas of sin that are a struggle for me.  (I know what these are!)
