I posted earlier this month about some of my own goals for the year but we have some goals for us as a family as well.
One of my big goals for us is to spend more time outside. After hearing about The Danish Way of Parenting and There’s No Such Thing as Bad Weather I became determined to spend more time outside with the kids.
Our loose goal is to make the 1000 hours outside for a year. That breaks down to 2.75 hours a day. Some days that will be easy, others will be hard, especially when Cannon goes to school full time in the fall (not ready to talk about that yet). But I figure if we are outside for basically full days camping in the summer we just might make it.
Another big goal for this year is to go on more adventures and travel more. I am not sure how much traveling we will be able to do in 2021, but I would love to travel internationally again. It was amazing taking the kids to Germany, Switzerland and Austria in 2019.
While international travel may have to wait until 2022 we still plan to travel locally while we can safely. We set ourselves up with a fun little travel trailer last fall and we just bought a camping/towing vehicle so we can take our trailer interesting places.
Along with traveling more I would like to capture our adventures on video. I have really been enjoying watching old videos from when the kids were babies. They are all short videos taken on my iPhone. I would love to have more family videos of our travels so I want to figure out how to take and edit more videos so that we can remember this time and our travels together.
I have other goals for us like enjoying this time together while we have it. I am sure some day we will look back on this quarantine time with fondness. I also want to be more creative with what we do during the day to keep the kiddos entertained and developing.
Do you have goals for your family this year?
Anyone know good resources about learning how to make and edit videos? We aren’t going to become the next Bucket List Family but I would love to have the memories recorded. I love this blog so much because it takes me back and helps me remember moments in time, videos are even better!
