At the beginning of 2011 Jarrod and I set some goals as a family. We had no idea what the year would bring but knew that having some goals would help us stay on target. We were at least aiming for something! By the end of 2011 we had accomplished (in one way or another) most of our goals. The year brought incredible change - job changes, location changes, and a pregnancy!
In January of 2012, as we awaited the birth of our first child, we set a few more goals. Having no idea what the year would bring, what being a family with a newborn would feel like, and still settling into our new jobs, we were crucially aware that setting goals would help us stay on track. We are not legalistic about our goals, but use them as a tool to help us dream and vision for the future. By the end of 2012 we had accomplished most of our goals and really stayed on track.
We love that you all hold us accountable. Each month (or so) I will write an update to keep you informed about where we are in terms of meeting our goals. I encourage you to share your own goals and how you are progressing through them.
We are not perfect, but we work hard. We hope that you will be encouraged by our trials and accomplishments as we journey toward meeting our goals. We look forward to sharing in the journey with you!
