Today is the last day of the first half of the year. It's hard to believe that this year is going by so quickly.
I'm looking at today like halftime of a ball game - a time to reflect on the first half and see what needs to happen in the second half.
My word for this year is DISCIPLINED.
If I'm honest about how disciplined I've been in the first half of the year, I would have to say I still have a LONG way to go.
Homeschooling - This past spring, I felt was better and more focused than I had been in a while. I've started planning for this coming year, and my goal is for this to be one of our best years yet. (Of course, that's my goal every year.)
Relationships - I'm more disciplined in carving out time for them, but I'm still not where I would like to be. I still tend to have better intentions than what I actually follow through on.
Our Home - It's nowhere near as decluttered as I had hoped it would be by this point in the year. The nice thing about midyear evaluating is that there is still time for me to work on this.
Academic Tutoring Business - I've had to put this on hold for a while. I would really like to start this, but I'm not sure I have time since I have to take the kids to soccer practice, track practice, dance classes, etc., in the evenings.
Personal Growth - I've been doing a lot more reading this year. I still have to finish Sassy's Christmas stocking and have some other personal projects I want to work on.
