I have about a week or so to go before we close on our first house. I'm making progress but still have lots to do. I'm also getting ready to start up baseball with the 2 oldest boys, our homeschool park group starts meeting weekly in 2 weeks and a possible joining a Homeschool co-op that will meet once a week too. I will also have to unpack, keep up with meals, cleaning, laundry, and start school work, and of course I want to decorate. I feel my plate is quite full but I'm also feeling very happy and excited about what this new year has in store. September has always been the start of my new year not January even when I wasn't schooling kids. I have a huge To Do List and a ton of new habbits I would like to start so my days would run smoother. But I know to start with baby steps. My goal for this week is to get up at the same time each morning before any of the kids do. I'm not a morning person but I'm going to aim for 7 a.m. Get dressed, have devotions, and have something other than cold cereal for breakfast. (Try to cut back to having cold cereal twice a week it just doesn't fill them up but they do love it.) I let you know next Saturday how I did.
