It is easy to love the people far away. It is not always easy to love those close to us. It is easier to give a cup of rice to relieve hunger than to relieve the loneliness and pain of someone unloved in our own home. Bring love into your home for this is where our love for each other must start. -Mother Teresa

Family Fun Goals 2016

We unintentionally took 2015 off from setting Family Fun Goals. We usually make them the beginning of January and our Ukrainian girls were still visiting us then. It just didn't feel right to make goals not knowing when they would home. ("Hey, let's make a list of fun stuff to do as a family even though you may not be here to do them!") 

And in the craziness of year, and man, it was a CrAzY, RoLLercoAster of a year, we just didn't do it. This year we are officially a family of six so things feel better. (That is an understatement.) 2016 is still going to have some eventful moments a few we know about like orthopedic surgery for Stacey and some that will inevitably be surprises.  The thought behind setting Family Fun Goals was to be intentional about spending enjoyable time together no matter what else was happening in life. 

Setting goals is something that is new for Stacey and Michelle so this process took a few weeks but finally we have a list! 

Yes, we are going to have a Baking Day which made the girls think of a Bacon Day. It started as a joke but they ultimately decided both were excellent ideas....we will keep you updated on these two events and the rest of them too! 

What are your Family's Fun Goals for 2016?
