The year ends and a new one begins. Its time for resolutions. We went to a friend's party this evening as a family and on the way home I told the kids that usually when a new year begins people make resolutions. So here is what the kids came up with:
Stella - the big kids agreed that she is to learn to walk and talk in the new year.
Helena - she said she would get her own cereal bowl in the mornings
Ephraim - that he would get his own cereal bowl and spoon in the mornings,
Ben - To say Helena correctly.
And for the adults:
Keith: Read 20 books, blog 15 times
Kiera : journal or blog at least weekly. Read 20 books. Celebrate the little things more as I got the word Toast as my word of the year. I think this is a really good word for me as I need to work on thanksgiving more and this feels like it is in that realm. I also got the Saint Wenceslaus as my saint for the year so I am hoping to learn from him and to invoke his intercession often.
The kids love saints and so I think tomorrow I will generate a Saint for the year for each of them too. For those of you interested in a Saint name for the year or an inspirational word head here.
