This Week's Goals & Recap


  
Happy Monday!  I hope your Monday is off to a great start.  I woke up to one of my kids with a fever and not feeling well.  That's just a good excuse to curl up and devour a large number of read aloud books this week!  I read half of an Imagination Station book just this morning.  Some of my goals will be adjusted depending on how long they are not feeling well.  

Last Week's Goals
Last week was such a fun filled week!  I ended up crossing off a fair amount of goals and we even made a trip to Louisville for the KY State Fair.  The state fair is one of my favorite things every summer!  
Marriage, Mothering, & Family
1.  Eli is playing flag football this fall!  I'm excited to attend his game on Saturday.  It was so fun to watch Eli in action on Saturday!  I teach piano lessons during Eli's practice times so this was my first time to see him play.  
2.  Eva has a therapy appointment this week.  I am so thankful for all of the incredible progress that she has made over the past year.  
3.  Take both children to the park to play this week.  We had a great time playing one afternoon and even met some new friends!  

Homemaking
4.  Work on plans for Disney.  I need to work on our packing list and make some reservations.  I also need to purchase a number of items before we leave.  Eli & Eva both need new bigger shoes and socks.  We nailed down some plans and I made a few travel reservations.  We will be flying into Orlando the day before we go to Disney in order to maximize our time at the park.  Brandon purchased new clothes this weekend and I plan on ordering a number of things for myself.  I think I just need to buy gym shoes for both kids and we are ready to go.  
5.  Spend at least one hour sewing on Evangeline's new dress.  I'm sewing a much requested Frozen dress for Eva using McCall's 7308.  This looks like a great pattern so I hope it turns out well.  

Personal
6.  Visit the chiropractor.
7.  Read four chapters of Gospel Treason and continue working through the book of 1 Peter in the Bible.  I obviously wasn't actually familiar with the Gospel Treason book when I set the previous goal.  This book will take a lot of time to actually work through since there are many questions and personal applications to apply.  :)  

Ministry & Friendships
9.  Meet up with a friend for coffee one afternoon.  I had a lovely time getting together at Panera with a new friend this past week.  I left feeling so encouraged after our time together.  She blessed my heart so much by her powerful testimony that was such great evidence to the Lord's great mercy.

10.  Help my grandmother one afternoon this week.

This Week's Goals
Marriage, Mothering, & Family
1.  Attend the fair parade with the entire family.
2.  Eva has a therapy appointment this week.  
3.  Enjoy an at-home date night or possibly a real date night.  I really want to go kayaking with Brandon but it is so warm outside!
4.  Spend extra time taking care of a sick child this week.  

Homemaking
5.  Finish sewing Evangeline's dress.  I think I should definitely be able to finish sewing it in an hour.  I just need to finish the arm holes and the hem.  One of the ways that I fit some of my hobbies into an already very full life is to simply allocate a certain amount of time for them.  I might not be able to spend an hour sewing every day like I would like but I can definitely find ways to squeeze in a fifteen minutes four days a week.  It helps to have a space where my sewing machine is set up and my space is organized.
6.  Purchase gym shoes for both children and order a number of things that I keep putting off because it takes time.  

Personal
7.  Read 1 Peter five days this week.  If time permits I would like to read a chapter of Gospel Treason but Bible before books.
8.  Exercise three times this week.

Ministry & Friendships
9.  Spend at least an hour working on new piano music for church.  I'd like to come up with a list of songs to work on learning in the next month.  I usually start working on Christmas music sometime in September.  

Other
10.  Help my grandmother one afternoon this week.
