2015 Goals

Here's a review of our 2015 goals. (Now that we're over halfway through February! Hah!)


1. Have a healthy baby. Done. He gave us a scare those first few days in the NICU, but he's been great ever since!

2. Read 12 books and do 3 puzzles. Done and done! 6 books in the first quarter, 10 in the second quarter, 11 in the third quarter, and 8 in the fourth quarter for 35 total! And for the puzzles, Beauty and the Beast, Peter Pan, and Princess and the Frog.

3. Run the Speedy Spaniard 10K. Done. I'm so glad I made that goal - it was such a fun course almost completely on the River Trail.

4. Finish our quiet book. Nope. I don't even think I worked on it once.


1. Get a paid internship for summer. Done. Paid and close by at UVRMC!

2. Read the Book of Mormon and New Testament. I'm pretty sure he forgot about this goal. I asked him about it yesterday and he didn't think he read both in their entirety.

3. Do a 50 mile bike race. Nope. He couldn't really find one he wanted to do. He did do some longer rides on his own, but none that were 50 miles.

4. Take more naps. Sure. (This year I told him he has to make goals that are easier to quantify.)


1. Learn to ride his bike without training wheels. Done

2. Learn to read. Done. A little bit from UPSTART, but really he learned in Kindergarten.

3. Try out a sport. Done. He did baseball and soccer.

4. Practice using scissors more. Done. Kindergarten for the win again.


1. Learn to go to the bathroom in the toilet. Done

2. Start a dance class. Done. One of the happiest days of my life!

3. Learn the alphabet. Done. Mom school for the win!

4. Learn to sit still and listen to books before bed. Done. We didn't do anything special, it just finally clicked one day.


1. Be a healthy baby. Done. Again he had those days in the NICU, but I still maintain he was an impostor and didn't really belong there!

2. Be a good eater. Done. With his days in the NICU, this could have gone terribly wrong, but he got it right away - the very first time I nursed him! (Counting my blessings for that!) He is also a good eater at solid foods - especially when I discovered refillable pouches! 

3. Learn to roll over. Done.

4. Learn to sit up. Done.

Our family goals:

1. Make our wills. Again, nope.

2. Add clothing/supplies to our 72 hour kits and store water. Nope for the first part, but we did start storing water.

3. Adjust to having 3 children. Sure.

4. Go to the temple and go on a date once a month. Yes for the temple (with the highlight being attending the Payson Temple Dedication), but no for date nights.

So basically our kids were rockstars achieving every goal we set for them, but Rog and I need to do better next year - especially on our family goals!
