10 Goals For This Week (+ it’s Camp in the City week!)

10 Goals For This Week

Our three kids are going to Camp in the City this week at our church. It’s run by Pine Cove Camps — an organization our family absolutely loves.

They are having a BLAST! And they are surprising us, too, because they’ve gotten up really early both mornings so far this week, gotten ready to go, packed their backpacks, and made their lunches — all with very little help from us!

As one child in particular usually really struggles to function at all before 8:30 am, this is a pretty big deal at our house! Here’s to hoping it continues the rest of this week!

By the way, how on earth do we have three kids that are all old enough to go to camp? They look so grown up in this picture that it almost took my breath away… So grateful for these three and the opportunity to be their mom.

Jesse and I are not quite sure what to do with ourselves all week long! It’s very, very rare that we leave our kids together, so it’s incredibly weird to think they’ll be gone all day during the day every day this week. We looked at each other and said, “I guess we better start getting used to this since in 12 to 15 more years, this will be our life!”

It’s good to have these reminders that our time to invest in our kids is fleeting and that we want to make the most of every day.

Last week’s goals:

Marriage/Mothering/Homemaking Goals

1. Finish one read aloud book with the kids

2. Write a love note to Jesse.

3. Go through and declutter at least two rooms in our house.

Personal Goals

4. Exercise at least 3 times.

5. Finish reading at least one book.

Local Ministry/Hospitality/Friendship Goals

6. Help the kids write notes to Grandma for her birthday. {Of course, they got these written and then I promptly forgot to send them before my trip to VA. :(}

7. Write notes to our Compassion-sponsored kids.

Business Goals

8. Prep for speaking at the Virginia Homeschool Conference this weekend.

9. Finish writing a chapter I’m contributing to an ebook compilation project.

10. Read through the entire manuscript of my new book (psst! You can see the cover and read more about it here.)

This week’s goals:

Marriage/Mothering/Homemaking Goals

1. Have a Family Movie Night with the kids.

2. Have an at-home movie date with Jesse.

3. Go out to breakfast with Jesse.

Personal Goals

4. Exercise at least 3 times.

7. Write a note of encouragement to a friend going through a difficult time.

Business Goals

8. Prep for speaking at the Acworth, GA Say Goodbye to Survival Mode event this Saturday. (Are you coming? Let me know if you are in the comments! I can’t wait to meet you all!)

9. Launch the Make Over Your Mornings weekly email newsletter (Psst! If you’ve purchased the course, look for this fun, encouraging, and newsy email from me to land in your inbox later this week!)

My 10 Goals For This Week (& whew! I survived last week!)

10 Goals For This Week

Whew! So I survived a very big week last week — Monday I spent all day at the ice rink with Kaitlynn and then we got together with our Monday Group that evening.

Monday evening, around 9:30 p.m., we went into full-on Make Over Your Mornings Launch mode and kept going strong through 8 p.m. Tuesday evening — except for a short 5-hour break to sleep.

I went to bed by 10 p.m. on Tuesday evening and slept in a little on Wednesday morning and then headed to spend all day at the ice rink again with Kaitlynn.

Wednesday evening, I finished some laundry, packed Silas’s stuff and my stuff for our trip to San Francisco, and went to bed by 11 p.m. — which was later than I’d hoped to, but sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do!

10 Goals For this Week

We had to get up by 4 a.m. to get out the door for our early-morning flight. We spent all morning Thursday on planes and in airports to make it to San Francisco by noon. And then we stopped quickly by our hotel and then spent all afternoon in meetings with ePantry.

We took an hour break to go on the Harbor Cruise and then went out to dinner with the ePantry team, and then crashed at our hotel around 10 p.m. (12 a.m. our time).

Silas and I both got a good night’s rest and then headed to the airport around 9 a.m. for more airports and plane rides — making it back to TN around 7 p.m. We got home, unpacked, hung out with the family, and then went straight to bed and slept in until 8 a.m. the next morning.

Saturday and Sunday were quiet days at our house — and it was such a nice break! I got caught up on laundry, went grocery shopping, went to Silas’ last baseball game with friends, went to church, served at church, cleaned up the house, and read for about 5 hours. It was bliss!

And today, I was back at the ice rink again all day and then we had dinner with our Monday Group — some of my favorite people on the planet and we laughed until we cried tonight recounting all sorts of stories and anecdotes from our lives. We’re so blessed to know these families and have the opportunity to do life with them! Screen Shot 2015-06-08 at 4.06.27 PM

{By the way, you can see a little video here of one of Kaitlynn’s current off-ice skating exercises, if you’re interested. I’m learning SO much about how much work goes into figure skating — and how much of the work doesn’t even happen on the ice!}

2. Write a love note to Jesse.
