I've decided to change a couple of things on my 30 x 30 list, due to the fact that I would be adding extra stress to Scott's life in order to complete them. I will replace them with challenges for myself that will probably take about the same amount of time to complete. I'm not sure if that's breaking the 30 x 30 list rules, if there are any, but I figure it's probably okay because I was only giving myself 6 months to complete it instead of a year:). Scott and I were wondering what happens if you don't complete your list. Do you feel like a failure for the rest of your life;). I don't think that I will, I just thought that it's a good way to get a lot accomplished in a short amount of time. The following are the items I'm changing:
Tile entry with Scott to: Make 30 cards
Do floor in SW room to : Read 30 books to the kids
Watch Solomon Bunch(I'm changing this because I'm not sure it will be on DVD before my birthday... To: Have a Medieval Feast with the family. It will include LOTS of cooking, baking, etc...
I think that each of these is a fair exchange and I can include the kids on 2 of them, whereas the 1st ones I chose would have to be done after they were in bed. We still might try to get the floors done, but I don't think Scott needs me adding to his to do list right now.
Interesting Update: Scott was measuring the kids growth today and these are the results:
Elyssia and Garrison are both 46 lbs and 46 inches tall
Caleb is 36 lbs and 36 inches tall
Kiersten is 26 lbs and 34 inches tall
I think that Caleb has experienced the most growth height-wise and I'm surprised by how much each of the kids has gained in the past couple months. Probably all the extra baking:). They'll need it this summer when they're burning off all their extra energy outside though, so it's actually a really good thing at this age.
Well, it's time to do devotions. We made it through to Revelation and started over this year. Right now we're interrupting the regular schedule to do Esther. Purim is this week and the kids wanted to act out the story.
