This year the ever inspirational lovely lindsay provided a wonderful way to record our new years resolutions. These boys of mine worked extra hard to write (or draw) about what they wanted to do this year.
The things they wrote made me so very happy. One wants to be more like Jesus. One wants to be more like President Monson. One wants to be more like Spiderman. One boy wants to go fishing and eat more Nutella sandwiches. Noah's best friend is Zachary. Zachary's best friend is Noah. Jared's best friend is Adam. Adam's best friend is Jared. They all want to go cliff jumping in Hawaii and listen to more Kick Drum Heart.
Seth and I wrote out our lists too, and it makes me so happy that goals have been set. That improvements, no matter how small, can be made. We will get our basement finished and we will eat sushi in Seattle. We will keep up on the Doctrine and Covenants along with the lesson schedule for this year and we will play Phase 10 together more often. So so much to do this year. So so many opportunities to grasp on to and figure out together. Together. The best way to approach any opportunity, wouldn't you say?
We sealed up the resolutions and children's lists in a big envelope and I hid them high in my closet so that we can open them up next year. We will see how close we've come to improving our frisbee games, if we've read the entire Percy Jackson series, and if we've eaten lobster. I can't wait to see how these little ones of mine fare as they wade their way through whatever twenty-thirteen will bring them. They are ready for anything.
And so am I.
