May is over friends.
I can hardly believe it.
I thought the saying was April showers brink May flowers… apparently that is not true this year. It has rained and rained and rained making this the wettest spring ever. I am praying that June brings abundant sunshine and praying for those who have been affected by flooding.
Let’s take a look at my May goals to see how I did.
*Continue blogging 4-5 days a week. *Grow my Instagram account to at least 650 followers. * Support Keri from Living In This Season during her E-book launch. So excited for her.
Done! I barely managed to reach my Instagram goal, but I did it. I had a lot of fall off after the loop giveaway was over. Not sure If I would do another one of those or not.
*Finish our spring bucket list.
*Get a pool pass, go swimming!!! *Milk shake date as a family at least once.
Unfortunately the spring showers washed our spring bucket list down the drain. There were so many activities we just weren’t able to do. This is our first incomplete bucket list ever #sadface. Maybe we’ll have better luck when we make our new summer one.
Pool passes are in hand and the milk shake date was a huge success. We also took a few bike rides and had a family movie night.
*Exercise at least 5 days a week including my 3 runs. *Finish my last half marathon for this year on May 16th. *Do another one mile fun run with Marissa and Emily. *Start “The New Rules” weight program later this month. *Buckle down on my diet when I start my new exercise program.
I guess I can call this one a win. I missed a run or two but only from SORE muscles after my new lifting routine. Doing dead lifts and squats with a barbell are serious business.
My last half marathon for the year was ran.
The girls did another fun run.
And my new diet/ training program is in full swing!
Spiritual- Same as last month
*Pray more. For my girls, my husband and that God would help us to find a new church home. *Start reading again, again. Praying I would hunger for words of truth.
*Listen to more worship music. Find some “kids” worship music for the girls.
This is the first month I feel like I can say like I made some improvements. I spent some time reading through some of Psalms this month. It is nice to have a little escape in the middle of the day and refocus a bit.
We are finally starting to get settled into a church. Where we are no where near becoming members we have stopped looking around and started regularly attending a church to see if it is a good fit for us. My prayer is that we would continue to build relationships there and that God would give us confirmation in our hearts if this is where He wants us to be.
Worship music has been less frequent this month, but we have also been on the go/outside a lot.
*Enjoy our very deserved summer break.
*Start lesson planning for the 2015/2016 school year.
We are LOVING summer, duh. What isn’t to love?! Our Library time has been abundant and the park time has been fun. If only we could just get some sunshine so we can head to the pool.
(This photo has nothing to do with this post… but I love this rainbow we saw the other day and had to sneak it in somewhere)
I started lesson planning the last few days of the month. I am a little over halfway done and hoping to finish this up next month.
*Try and plan a mini vacation.
Make Finish a new pallet sign. *Work on mini home make-over stuff. *Have friends over to grill out.
Mini vacation is planned, WAHOO!!!
Dining room is complete! I really need to take pictures and share the results with you.
Grill day was a HUGE success. We had around 20 friends over and the party lasted from 12:30-7:00 or so. It was so good to have a house full of friends.
*Continue blogging 4-5 days a week.
*Try out a new link up or two.
*Write more posts on the weekends, when I can, freeing up my week days.
*Create and share a Summer Bucket List.
*Family trip to the Frisco trails.
*Celebrate Marissa’s 7th birthday.
*Exercise at least 5 days a week.
*Complete or almost complete stage one of the “New Rules” program.
*Keep my nutrition plan on track.
*Run a 5K with Russ…. again.
*Help at VBS while the girls attend.
*Read more this month than I did last month.
*Plug in more to the church we have been attending.
*Work on math facts with Marissa.
*Finish lesson planning for the 2015/2016 school year.
Make Finish a new pallet sign.
*Have a yard sale with my mom.
*FINALLY go to Silver Dollar City.
*Start on playroom to schoolroom remodel.
June is going to be another busy month. Summer will officially start, a certain little girl will turn 7 and we have our mini vacation coming up soon!!!
It promises to be an exciting month and I can’t wait to share all about it!
Do you have any goals for June or summer?
