New Year, New Goals

It’s a new year and that means for our family, our yearly planning meeting. I was recently a part of a group session where New Years Resolutions were brought up. We’ve never been on the Resolution bandwagon. To me they seem like you are setting yourself up for failure. Resolutions…

Christmas Time Is Here

So how was everyone’s Thanksgiving week? We had a week of low key activities and relaxation. We had some Taekwondo classes and some house clean up and decorating thrown in there (we always start decorating on Black Friday for Christmas), but for the most part I had planned to tackle…
