A new year.
We had a couple weeks where Brandon was home and it was so wonderful to have him around all the time. We relaxed, spent a lot of time with family and created new goals for this upcoming year. I'll tell you a little more about our goals at the end of the post, but this week was Brandons first few days back at work. We sent him off with a lot of hugs, kisses and tears- we sure to do love him. And yes Brandon is awesome, he rides his bike to work most days- whether its rain, snow or shine.
It seems the littlest always have the hardest time sending Brandon off because their still trying to understand the concept of time (obviously) but right now Benson is having a hard time letting Dad go every morning.
It been these three and me all day and next week we will send Daxton back to school. I still am not loving Daxton in school all day and we will miss him a lot. But its been so fun to have him at home with us.
Also, Brandon's had a messenger side bag for his work bag and it seemed to always get in the way when he biked. So for Christmas, I got him a Just Porter Streeter Backpack because I wanted him to have an easier bag for biking to work, he's loved it and has commented saying its "The best bike commuter bag." Anyway, love when gifts work out as a success.
As a final note, I wanted to tell you a little about what we are doing for our goals this year. For me, I decided that I wanted to work on a goal each month. I think by the third or fourth month of the year I forget my resolutions and I really don't want that to happen. So this year I'm hoping that if I write down a goal each month it'll help me with the progress that I have and if I need to extend a goal or move on I can do month to month- helping me progress more. Just thought I would write it down for anyone who might need some ideas on resolutions. Hope everyone is having a good start to their year!!
