October Goals: for Mommy and kiddos

monthly goals at mama smiles
Mission of the Month

 

So, my theory of all this accountability kinda worked…….

Mission Accomplished

Here’s what was achieved:

1.  The kids have learned most of the letter sounds, they’re stuck on the ones that have 4 or 5 sounds, but that’s partially because we didn’t get to work on it as much as I wanted to.

2.  I did sew something, and got another project partially done.  Of course neither were the two quilts I need to work on.

 

3.  I kinda got further on my Bible study like I wanted, but not as much as I’d like.

 

NEW GOALS

 

Kids:

READING: Finish alphabet part of reading program (review of that to come, I’m still ambivalent on them partially because of customer service).

MATH: Again, working on their writing.  I’m thinking through how I want to achieve this, part of it is I need to make some hints for them they can keep with them, probably to be added to this project.

SCIENCE and HISTORY: by the end of October I’m thinking we’ll be finished with insects, so I want to have them be able to tell me about what they’ve learned, and in History by the end of this week we’ll have finished the first quarter, so that’s another review spot.

ME:

Physical: continue working out, my goal is to work out 3 times a week.

 Home: I’m going to join this challenge and work on cleaning my house.  The challenge for this week is to clean my coat closet and any other hall closets.  Not having any other hall closets I’m going to work on the closet in the guest bedroom which houses all of the random “to be grown into clothes.”  I think I can get this done by the time this post goes up on Friday, we’ll see.

 

Spiritual: finish the 1 Thessalonians study, and get started on 2nd Thessalonians.  I’m also tempted to write a “How to Study the Bible” mini-blog (as in it will be for a limited duration until I’ve gone through the lessons I want to write), but that may be biting off too much.

 

School: I want to finish up my planned out schedule for history, and again work more on geography plans, they’re coming along, kind of.

 

And hopefully I’ll get a slew of laundry done and put it away, emphasis on putting away.

 

Oh, and cleaning the downstairs, hopefully by the time you read this it’s much prettier.  Fingers crossed.
