Mama's Mission of the MonthWelcome 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, please read my Mama’s Mission of the Month intro post! (If you have already read the rules, you can easily grab the link-up buttons from the intro post as well.)

August Mission Update:

I feel like this was a rather hectic month for us. With the start of school (and all of the prep and planning it entails), along with the fact that we are in the process of buying a new house (a TOTAL God thing), I feel like I haven’t gotten nearly as much done as I would have liked. However, as I look at my list, I actually have much more marked off than I had expected!

Personal:

1. Exercise at least 3 times a week! This was MUCH more do-able! I actually ended up exercising in some fashion almost every weekday!

2. Finish reading Start. LOVED this book!

3. Finish the Pursuit of Proverbs 31 Bible Study. This study was rather eye-opening for me!

Marriage:

4. Write 3 love notes to my husband.

Parenting:

5. Implement a plan for daily intentional fun for me and the kids.

6. Make game night a part of our weekly family fun!

7. Make Mama & Me journals for my older twin boys.

Homeschooling:

8. Finish prepping materials and curriculum from the upcoming school year.

9. Decide on a date and start our school year!

Homemaking:

10. Meal planning…I have GOT to get a handle on this… umm…It still hasn’t happened!

Paperless Home Organization eBook11. Finish reading and implementing Mystie Winckler’s Paperless Home Organization eBook. This eBook has been EXTREMELY helpful! I have already applied it to almost all aspects of my life, except meal planning! I never realized just how organized I could get with the help of my phone! For the first time in a LONG time, I was actually able to get birthday cards out on time! Thanks Mystie!!

Ministry/Friendships/Extended Family:

12. Write 3 notes of encouragement and/or gratitude to friends/family members. I was close…I wrote 2 letters.

Blogging/Online Activity:

13. Update and tweak 30 old blog posts. Um, I only got about 10 done…but I did get all of the My Father’s World Kindergarten Copywork pages done!
