Welcome to Mama’s Mission of the Month! My hope is that this will help me {and you} follow through on some of the goals that we have set for the month! So, if you are a mama and you want to join in, check out the intro post! (If you have already read the rules, you can easily grab the buttons from the Buttons Tab on the top of the sidebar.)

Mission of the Month

September Mission Update:  Well, I started strong this month and then had a few curveballs that sort of derailed my progress! But, considering, I am still pleased with the progress I made. It wasn’t all that I had hoped, but I headed in the right direction!

Personal:

1. Begin Pursuit of Proverbs 31. I am loving this study! It has been so enlightening and freeing!

Pursuit of Proverbs 31

Marriage:

2. Flirt daily!

Parenting:

3. Update the kid’s chore charts. What a relief it is to have the kids pitching in around the house again!

4. Make Give/Save/Spend pouches for the kids.

5. Finish reading Good and Angry:Exchanging Frustration for Character in you and your Kids. I haven’t finished this book because I decided to order the B90 Bible and begin the B90 plan. I do, still, plan to finish Good and Angry…B90 is just taking up most of my reading time right now.

Homeschooling:

6. Have the kids write thank you letters to the firefighters that gave us an impromptu tour of the fire station. Rough drafts are written…final copies this week.

7. Finish making the Bible printables to coordinate with our curriculum.

8. Complete another African American history unit.

Homemaking:

9. Meal Planning…as much as I have fought the idea, I have GOT to just sit down and do this! Honestly, I am sick and tired of answering the question, “What are we having for dinner, mom?” with the answer, “I don’t know.” I’m still answering with “I don’t know.” Gotta do something about that…

10. Mend clothes.

Ministry/Friendships/Extended Family:

11. Write 2 letters.

12. Update and add to my family/friend birthday list.

Blogging/Online Activity:

13. Continue to resurrect my other blogs.

14. Share the cards that I made to use along with the SHE Method. In progress.

15. Write a new workbox post showing how we have changed up our old workbox system.

 Other:

16. Complete 10 scrapbook pages. I did one…

17. Frame and hang some of the kid’s artwork. I framed some but have yet to hang them.

Mission NOT Accomplished YET
