New Year's Resolution- Home School Style

Lately I have been reading a lot of blogs about New Year's resolutions and I have decided to plunge in with some ideas borrowed from others.

1. My New Year's Theme: (I got this idea from a blog and I can't remember who.  If it is you come forward I would love to give you a high five! I promise I'll be gentle.) Speaking of gentleness- that is my new years resolution.  Being gentle with my words and actions.  This is a biggie for me.  If you were on the other side of my screen you would see my children nodding their heads in unison.

2. My New Year's Resolution for the body: Do Wii Fit with my mom at least once a week.  (Yes we bought one...shhhh...don't tell the kids! It's their Christmas present!)

3. My New Year's Resolution for my faith: Start my mornings with God.  No matter how small. Amen.

4. My New Year's Resolution for our school: Do a weekly plan.  Even if I don't end up following it.

5. My New Year's Resolution for our home: Put away laundry once a week.  If you don't think it is a big deal, check out this post!

I'm keeping it to 5 things.  I almost feel like 5 is too much but at least I am sure to get something done next year! (Even if it is one load of laundry!)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!


  1. Great Post!! Love your Resolutions! I want to make daily time with God a priority! Sometimes it's hard to make myself get up early but once my day starts it flows pretty fast. Finding that extra 30 minutes is sometimes a challenge. Love your laundry post. I can always get them washed but then they might sit in a basket for a day. I'm getting better, lol.

    Thanks for joining us for Mommy Madness!! I'm now following your blog and hope you'll follow mine. I'm looking forward to reading your posts!

  2. Thanks for joining the hop! Your goals are wonderful. I love that you want to start each morning out with God time. It really sets the day off on a good start.

  3. Hopping on over. I love your resolutions. They are about what mine are. I didn't look at your picture concerning laundry, but our laundry room is a pile of clothes right now (it doesn't help that my 2 year old has decided she wants to search for her own clothes, tossing aside everything else). I am now following your blog.
    Have a Merry Christmas and may God bless your new year and your resolutions.
