Happy New Year!

It always feels good to start with a clean slate each new year. I am trying to do better by living one day at a time, but I was still able to make a few goals that will hopefully make life a little easier.

Scriptures as History

This year, we are reading the scriptures from the beginning as a family. When I was thinking of this goal, I decided to overhaul our homeschool history curriculum. We will now be incorporating the scriptures as part of our history studies. We will still be using Story of the World, but out of sequence. We started with Genesis 1 last night, so I'd say we're off to a good start.

Books, Books, Books

I met my goal of reading 100 books in 2017 and have made the same goal for 2018. As part of my reading, I'll be including books pertaining to the topics we're studying in history. I'm going to keep it light and fun by sticking with historical fiction books rather than non-fiction. I do most of my reading at night while in bed and don't want to have to think too hard about what I'm reading. We'll also be doing more read-alouds this year. The children enjoy them but it's not always easy to find the time during the day when everyone is willing to play quietly and listen.

What's for Dinner?

I need to get back to planning our menu. January is a difficult time to menu plan because half way through the month, my husband will no longer be joining us for dinner. However, I am making the effort and will do my best to follow through with the plan.

Those are my starter goals for 2018. I've always been a work in progress, so I will be adding more goals as the year moves forward.
