1. Make some headway on my yearly goal of turning this blog into a book. I spent about five minutes messing around with the fonts on the posts that I had already uploaded to the book. I did not enter even a single new post.
2. Devise a prayer plan. I now have a notebook for my personal prayer. I had intended to start making a basket full of prayer requests that the children can pick out of during our morning prayer time, but I did not do it.
3. Start working on my yearly goal of cleaning and organizing different "zones" in the house. I accidentally got a little bit accomplished on this goal. I got out my sewing machine and serger to start putting together Abigail's Easter dress and discovered that I had no idea where the power cords and pedals were to either machine. I have not used them since we moved here last May. I thought they might be in a box in the garage, so I went through three boxes and purged/organized them. It turns out they were in a drawer inside. :) Speaking of Abigail's dress, I did get a good bit done on it this week. It doesn't look like much yet, but I learned how to do piping and how to make a collar. It's going to start taking shape quickly now.
Here are my children's goals:
Joshua (8) - Read aloud to Noah and Joseph at least 3 days a week. Joshua read to the little boys two days this week again. I need be better about encouraging him to do it more often. They all really enjoy it.
Abigail (7) - Master the art of mopping floors. This week's mopping consisted of getting on hands and knees and spot mopping with a spray bottle and a rag. None of the floors were really dirty enough to be mopped, except for under the kitchen table.
Esther (6) - Dress Joseph every morning. Joseph has come down the stairs looking quite snazzy this week! Esther likes red plaid shirts, so he is generally wearing one of those and a pair of jeans. She even wets his hair and combs it some mornings. She's getting better about putting his pajamas and nighttime diaper away, but we still need to work on that.
