3. Do pelvic floor exercises at least four times.

6. Go through baby clothes and put away those the babies have outgrown.

7. Get all needed school supplies.

    • I’m pretty biased, but I think they are some of the cutest babies ever. 🙂

      • Kathleen says:

        They truly are!!! Love what your family is doing, and what you mean!

        • Jill says:

          I wouldn’t waste my time on Where the Crawdads Ding… Way too much description of intimacy and unmarried intimacy at that. 😕. I would never have listened to it had I known.

          • Jill says:


          • I’m almost 40% of the way through and there’s only been a tiny bit of it — really only in one section. Does it get a lot worse at the end of the book? I’ve found it to be insightful and such a good reminder so far that you never know where someone is coming from or what pain they are experiencing. But like I said, I’m only 40% of the way through… so I might end up not finishing it if it starts to go downhill.

            • Kayla says:

              I feel that it doesn’t get really good until the end of the book – like with 40% left. I think you should try to stick it out!

  • April says:

    My biggest goal is to improve my blog traffic. This is such a struggle for me. I guess I was a turtle level slow learner. But I finally have the time to work on it after years of not having time to do any more than write and press share.
    I also do the morning walks that you mentioned. Oh! And kudos on the pelvic floor exercises. It works. I have four children, and I always did them, and to this day I can jump on the trampoline and sneeze just fine with none of those worries you read about.

  • Meredith says:

    What pelvic exercises do you do?
    Love the pic!

    Hi Crystal,
    I love your goals for the week email. They always motivate me! I also love the work you are doing with your family. My husband and I hope to foster dogs in a couple of years but I also hope to foster children too! You are doing such beautiful work!

    My goals for this week is to work out 5x, with two 24 hr fasting days.
    Finish my two Lifebook classes for the week; it’s a great course and I highly recommend it!
    Finish setting up accounts for the ultimate homeschooling bundle.
    Review our monthly spending and create a new budget.
