House of Literature Bookmobile

This is the place I share book (movie) selections and reviews I have found worth mentioning. I'll also share gleanings of family life, faith, home education, and ongoing writing projects. Book selections will include children's books, books on home education, Catholic books, classics, series, raising children, and books that are made for reading under a shady oak tree with lemonade, in a bubble bath with a latte', or next to a snuggly fireplace with a cup of hot cocoa. Happy Reading!

New Year's Resolutions


Child wise:
Focus on one interest each child is especially fond of and become their #1 advocate and cheerleader in seeing the interest flourish this year.

Spouse wise:
To make my husband feel as though he's the greatest thing God ever created.

Health wise:
To make sure I drink a glass of water morning and night (at least)
Get back on a daily vitamin
Take calcium supplement
Do some "freestyle dance" for exercise daily with the children
Walk at the gym at least once a week

Money wise:
Eat out less
Stay home more
Cut down on book buying habit

Personal Reading:
Books by Elizabeth Berg
Cottage Tales of Beatrix Potter by Susan Wittig Albert

Work Opportunities:
Finish The Lacemaker's Shop
Finish Catholic Mosaic
Finish Christmas Confetti Catalog

School wise:
Do a math activity/game with the children daily
Watch at least one science video from the library weekly and discuss it
Order and do some science experiments weekly, such as these demos at Froguts

(The science notations were added because we have not been consistent with our science study this school year. I need to get it in my head to do more science.)

If you're reading this, consider yourself tagged! What are your New Year Resolutions for 2006? Even if you don't feel like thinking or writing it down, it's a good way to focus and discern your personal expectations whether you follow through during the year or not.

    Great resolutions, Cay! I hope to do the same... oh, but forget that cut down on book-buying resolution, however! LOL! That's nearly a sin to *not* buy books, right?

    Cay -- you had me up until the reduction in books....unless you mean twaddle, than I can understand reducing that......

    Blessings and good luck on your resolutions...
