What are my current goals right now,  I truely am not sure sometimes I feel like not setting goals because I do not like to fail and I am not good at follow through.  But then I thought about it some more and told myself why do they have to be big goals, why not take something small for your first public goal setting and things got more managable from that point of view. 
One of the things that I love to do is spend time outdoors with the kids but as they have gotten older it is not as frequent that we just go to the park or for a walk. But yesterday afternoon everybody was just doing nothing and I suguested a walk down by the river, to my suprise they all jumped at this, even Kai and off we went for a walk along the breams.  They also had to stop and play at the gyro park, even though they are really too big for the equipment there they had a blast.
So my goal for today is to spend more time outdoors with the kids.  They might be teenagers but they still like to play they just kinda have to be told it is ok to do so.

I did not post the pages from my daily gratitude album over the weekend so here they are.



  1. that's a really sweet goal for your kids (:

  2. That's a great goal. Funny, my kids and I took a walk by a lake yesterday and it's the first time in ages we'd done anything like that.

  3. I love your goal Amber and should be an achievable one too. Hope the teens enjoyed it so much that they will want to repeat it.

  4. The family time page is awesome! I love the papers, the placement, the title. Great page. And a great goal too. I have one little one, but it can be difficult to get outside sometimes. I wish you success with your goal. I'm a classmate from Blogging for Scrapbookers.

  5. nice goal I love to get outdoors with my kids too but they seem to be here there and everwher these days
