How has another month passed us by already? Is it really going to be August tomorrow? I might be freaking out a little at everything I need to get done this month. But before I get to that let’s look at my goals from July and how I did with them.
1. A date with Micah
We actually got to do two dates this month! We had one at-home date where we ordered sushi and watched a movie and when we visited my parents we got to go out to dinner and out to a movie! We are simple people for dates but it makes it easy! It was wonderful getting that special time with him to be US and not be focused on the kids.
2. Mommy-kid dates with the three big kids
July somehow got away from us and with all the travel at the end I only got to take Parker and Mercedes on their dates. Jamison and I have one on the calendar for next weekend though so he won’t be left behind. If you’ve never done a mommy/kid date I highly encourage you to try it! We started at age 3 and try to do something simple and fun that allows us to connect one-on-one with the kid for an hour or so.
3. Hand write three letters
Oh goodness. How sad that I didn’t get this one done? I pulled out the paper but it never got finished. It will happen this week. I’ll be sure to follow up with you on it!
4. Start journals with the big boys
We’ve started! And I meant to send the journals with them for the week they spent at Micah’s parents house so they could write down all the fun stuff they were doing but I totally spaced and didn’t transfer them from my bag to their bag on the trip. Oh well. At least we got started and we can keep these going now.
Well, not as great as other months but I still got some quality relationship time in. It’s definitely an area I need to keep working in so I can build up stronger relationships with those I love.
