Happy New Year!

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2012

This blog has been on a long extended break of activity. I, however, haven’t. It has been a busy semester. I had full intentions of posting often about our new Tapestry of Grace homeschool co-op. I’d had intentions of keeping up with my 1,000 Gifts list. I’d wanted to post cute videos and pictures and have this little spot on the web be my online scrapbook for all of my 5 readers (like my mom, mother-in-law and sis). However, while I have been busy, this blog has been quiet.

So dear readers, welcome to my quarterly post 🙂

Here are some things I do wish to accomplish in 2012…

Read the Bible daily

Exercise regularly

Spend more one-on-one time with my children

Read more books

And that is it. I’m not much on New Year’s Resolutions. I don’t like to set myself up for failure. However, I love spending time with my kids. I just need to be more intentional. I tend to think the special times will happen as I grab one and go to the store but such is not the case. So, I want to go on breakfast dates and really get them alone. I’m looking forward to this. I also love exercising and plan to get a little in daily. As far as books, I used to read lots of them. Sadly, computer time has replaced much of my book-reading time… and I miss it.

Two books I really enjoyed last year are 1000 Gifts by Ann Voskamp and Made to Crave by Lysa Terquist. What were your favorites? I’d like to make a reading list for this year and I’d love suggestions.

Happy 2012. Maybe this year I’ll post more than every 3 months. Then again, if I really stick to my list and keep teaching and feeding all my kiddos, maybe not 🙂
