Here's one of our goals:
As parents of 4 and 6 year olds, we recognize the important role of cultural enrichment to expand upon what they learn in school. To that end we will visit a museum/cultural center each month. We actually started early by attending the Medieval treasure hunt at the Metropolitan Museum of Art at the Cloisters yesterday and a quick visit today to the American Museum of Natural History. We had to pull the kids away from the galaxy exhibits where Brooke learned about supernovas. Ryan lit up when he saw "Rexy" the dinosaur from Night at the Museum. I can't wait to watch how they grow and develop as a result of these monthly excursions.
See not so bad...
In addition to our personal goals, each child has their own goals too:
Read a chapter book a month
Make up bed/keep room clean daily
Learn to ride bike without training wheels
Eat vegetables...You get the picture.
Our friends at Kadence LLC http://kadencellc.com/ , advise that you break annual goals into quarterly goals to help you stay on track. Check them out for upcoming workshops to help you get the best out of 2011.
My husband Spencer forwarded the following article to me about setting family goals, so I'm playing it forward by sharing it with you.
Here's to raising our families together!
Wishing you a blessed, healthy, prosperous and joy-filled 2011!!
