Okay, so it’s been six months since I have blogged. Time just flies by in my world and here it is the start of 2015 and once again I am trying to make a new plan for this year. Basically my goals from last year were to spend more time with the people that I love, to live a healthier lifestyle and to end the year with less debt than I started with. As a whole I would say that I achieved these goals although there were certainly different parts of the year where I was flailing over all aspects of them. I started to write down my goals for the week again which is something that I know works for me if I can remember and take the time each week to do it.
This week I gave myself five goals to accomplish in addition to my normal chores. The first one that I am accomplishing is to blog and update everyone on the last six months (really the year) that I have been gone. I think it would take me a book to write everything down that we did over the summer, so I am going to bombard you with pictures instead. Like “they” say, a picture is worth a 1,000 words. I will also do my best to keep more pictures coming over this next year.

I got tired of putting them in chronological order, but you will all get the idea of how much fun we had last year. The goal is to enjoy as much time with the family as possible before the kids grow up and this year we managed to do just that!
