This Week's Goals and Recap

Well the week is half spent and I've neglected to share my goals for the week.  That's because we went camping.  Tent camping that is!  I did work on my goals on Sunday just like every week so I thought I would still share.  Happy Thursday!  

Last Week's Goals:
Marriage, Mothering, & Family
1.  Work on plans for Father's Day.  We treated the happy hubby to a trip to TN for Father's Day.  It was just wonderful.  
2.  Eva has two therapy appointments this week.  Check. 
3.  Enjoy a playdate at the zoo with friends.  It was fantastic despite the crowds!  
4.  Spend a day at home catching up with my children.  (I actually went out of town overnight to surprise a friend at her 30th birthday party on Saturday.  While I had a great time I really missed my sweet kids.)  I'm planning on spending lots of time outside playing and then enjoying some extended reading time in the afternoon.  I think I am going to try to make sure that we spend at least one day every week at home where we do not drive anywhere.  

5.  Plant another row in my garden and weed five rows.  Continuing harvesting lettuce for our table.  I planted three more rows last week.  We harvested lettuce and our first banana pepper which Eli proceeded to eat raw in the garden!  
6.  Catch up on laundry and cleaning.  Time permitting I hope to begin working on re-organizing part of the basement.

7.  Write two blog posts this week.
8.  Begin reading a new book.  (I'd love book recommendations for the summer months.)  I read Douglas Wilson's Recovering the Lost Tools of Learning.  

Ministry & Friendships
9.  Enjoy having friends over for dinner one evening.  We had a great time visiting with friends despite my casserole which just didn't taste the same as last time!  
10.  Spend three hours working on Vacation Bible School preparations.  It's almost here!  I finished reading through all of my lessons and making a supply list.  

This Week's Goals
Marriage, Mothering, & Family
1.  Enjoy a great time camping with my family this week.
2.  Begin Five in a Row Volume 1.  We are rowing Madeline this week and having the best time!  Last year we worked through the entire Before Five in a Row and it was so delightful.  (Let me know if you would be interested in more details.)
3.  Be intentional this week to spend time talking with my husband each evening.  Practically speaking this means staying on top of my workload and choosing to make Brandon a priority.

4.  Weather permitting I hope to spend time weeding and planting flowers in the garden.
5.  Spend time organizing financial paperwork and health insurance explanation of benefits.
6.  Sew new skirt for Evangeline.

7.  Begin studying a new book of the Bible.  I'm also hoping to journal at least two times this week.
8.  Visit the chiropractor.

Ministry & Friendships
9.  Enjoy time spent visiting one of my dearest best friends from college.
10.  Continue working on VBS preparations and decorate my classroom on Friday.  VBS starts next week!

That sums up my goals for this week.  Since many of my goals involve mundane tasks like organizing paperwork and cleaning I'm planning on listening to some podcasts or audiobooks.  What are your favorite podcasts?  Do you have any goals for this week?
