April Goal Check-in

 
๐Ÿ‘จ‍๐Ÿ‘ฉ‍๐Ÿ‘ง‍๐Ÿ‘ฆ Family
✔- Monthly date night 
✔- Monthly kid date 
✔ - Weekly outing/playdate (dinner with family friends // park picnic // high school baseball game) 
❌- Take a big road trip to meet our niece/cousin! (Not time yet!) 

๐Ÿ’ช Health
✔- Follow the whole-foods-plant-based program that makes me feel so good 
✔- Make a morning walk + a few minutes of strength training part of my morning routine
✔- Try 12 new recipes 

๐Ÿ“ Homeschool
✔- Weekly field trip or activity 
✔- Reading, writing, arithmetic, read-aloud. Everything else is just societal pressure ✌

๐Ÿก Home/Homestead
❌- Get the bookshelves culled & organized- I've culled all I was willing to cull but they still don't all fit! ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผ
❌- Create a living room- The only way to do this in our tiny house is to get rid of our kitchen table and have only a living room plus coffee table instead of a dining space. The couch feels so much more important to me while we are homeschooling or hanging out in the evenings, but after every meal I do all this gross table wipe down plus sweeping and feel like this is just not doable yet until the kids are older. I am still deciding.
✔- Replace kitchen blinds 
❌- Fence in bigger garden plot- We're making our own fence posts since we haven't been able to find what we were looking for!  
❌- Plant two nut trees- having a lot of trouble finding what I'm looking for here! 

๐Ÿ’™ Ministry 
❌- Take an online writing workshop (No... But since I knew I'd be posting here I looked into some and then found a DVD series through my library! It's through The Great Courses, which is an online class anyway, so it most definitely counts. I've completed lecture 12 of 24) 
✔- Post 2+ blogs/week 
✔- Keep podcasting 
✔- Monthly food Bank donations
❌- Volunteer sonewhere with the kids 

๐Ÿ“š Reading 
❌- Read 100 books that are 100 pages or more (At 52 so far) 
❌- Read one Christian sci-fi (Hooray for understanding my obliger tendencies! I have ready about 1/4 of Black by Ted Dekker since I knew I'd be posting this and wanted to at least have made progress here ๐Ÿ˜) 
✔- Read one Christian fantasy (Fawkes by Nadine Brandes
❌- Read 12 grown up books I already own (Only one so far... But I still think I'll pull it off ๐Ÿ’ช) 
✔- Read three to five nights per week
❌- Spiritually-minded buddy read

๐Ÿ’ฐ I also have financial goals that are private and are almost complete minus the full financing of the baby niece road trip.
