A New Year's Day Walk

Happy New Year! 

It was a super windy day here today! 
The little bit of snow that we got Friday night has all melted, but it's still cold. 

After church the older kids wanted to go for a walk.  They love the wind.


I tagged along.
It's always fun to hang out with them. 

I can hardly believe we are here again...the start of a new year. I'm a goal setter.  Are you?  I'm not one for New Year's resolutions so much as just setting some goals.  I figure I can't get to where I want to go if I don't have any plan on how to do it.

Here are some of the things I want to accomplish in 2012.

Read the Bible from cover to cover again.  This year I am doing a chronological reading plan.  Visit here if you want to check it out or other Bible reading plans.

Lose the last bit of "baby weight".  I have that last (hardest) 10 lbs. left.  My plan is to cut some calories and walk on the dreadmill treadmill several days each week.

Take Ellie to the library once each week. (This will encourage her reading skills and give us some special one on one time together.)

Know (I mean really know) my children's hearts, their desires, their dreams.

Learn and become proficient in the 2 stage process of soaking grains.

Improve my photography skills.

Make KILLER French bread.

L.O.V.E. my husband and children.

Live passionately.

These are just a few things on my list to learn and do and be in 2012.
