Summer Goals…

When I think of words to describe myself the following come to mind:

Creature of Habit

Goal Oriented

Over-achiever

Tenacious

Empathetic (at least I try to be!)

My three girls and two of their good friends at a track meet last weekend. I look to my kids for honest feed back—their actions often speak louder than their words!

I asked my girls to think of five words or phrases to describe me and this is what they said:

Animal Lover

Hard worker

A Passionate Believer who tries to cause others to also believe…

Loving

Annoying—Opinionated—Embarrassing

Because I am a goal oriented-hard worker, I love my children, and I am annoying and opinionated; I had each one of my three girls make a list of goals to achieve this summer.  Because I believe in leading by example, I made a list of goals for myself as well.  I would like to share my goals and my oldest daughter’s goals with you…

My Goals

  1. Keep my children engaged and learning through the summer months through athletics, reading, and helping with the blog…
  2. Continue to work hard to set my animals up for success so that they can make healthy beef using the fewest natural resources…
  3. Support my husband as he makes his way through the crazy, busy, and tension filled haymaking (alfalfa) farming season…

My favorite 12 year old is learning that success goes hand in hand with hard work. Her first place finish last weekend in the 1500m in a time of 5:48 was fun to watch…

My Favorite 12 Year Old’s Goals

  1. Run 200 miles to earn the right to have her name on the 200 mile Cross Country Runner plaque…
  2. Read 100 books…
  3. Learn what the term optimal trajectory means and figure out how to calculate it for things…

It appears that both AG and I will be busy this summer.  Evidently, I am going to have to add optimal trajectory to my list so that my 12 year old will not be smarter than her mama!

Did you make summer goals this year?  If so, what are they? If you were asked to describe me, what words would you choose?
