Happy New Year! We're excited to be at the start of a New Year and with the kids back at school today we're slowly gearing our minds towards work. We've been taking it easy since arriving back home from our Christmas trip to London. Yesterday we took time out to sit down as a family and think about what we would like to achieve over the coming year. I first saw the idea of a 'Family Focus Collage' here and thought it was a great family activity to see what we were all hoping to get out of the coming year.
So what do we want to achieve? As a family we all want to continue learning French and we've decided we all want to learn to play the guitar. The boys got little guitars for Christmas and have already been doing music shows for us! We want to find some proper snow before the end of Winter and go sledging. We will get chickens soon and start our keeping chickens adventure all over again. We want to bake more and generally get the kids more involved in cooking. We started this weekend making homemade pizzas! Although we already eat quite a few of our meals together we're aiming for more, especially breakfast which the kids tend to have first.
We want to buy a campervan so that we can start our European travel adventures. We may be dreaming with this one but the least we can do is start saving up for one. Reuben has his sights on Spain which I'm sure we could achieve as it's driving distance from where we are. Andrew is keen to attempt some sort of family biking trip when the weather is a bit warmer. We're aiming for lots of fun this year and creating a better work/life balance which, if we work together, I know can be achieved.
Do you set family goals? What's on your list for 2015?
