Fourth quarter! We made it, friends!
If you’re interested in what went down in January, February, and March you can read this post. If you’re hoping to read more about what happened in April, May and June then that’s over here. If you want to read about third quarter, then here you go! And if you’re interested in how I approached setting goals for 2020, that post is over here. The collection of 2020 goal-centric posts is getting meaty and I love it. What a fun paper trail to reflect back on. Let's dive into fourth quarter goals and round out this year right, shall we?
ONE. Become a Family Who Loves Nature & Adventure
Winter is just around the corner and we are ready to take it on!
Some fourth quarter focus areas: to continue embracing any weather pattern with outdoor play time (I have all of the neighborhood moms on Voxer or in my text messages to help facilitate play dates), midday or pre-dinner neighborhood walks, and outdoor visits to places like the gardens. Less measurable but equally as important, I also want to watch how I talk about and describe the weather as temperatures get increasingly colder over the next few months, especially into first quarter of 2021. If I act like the cold sucks and is an inconvenience for me, then the kids will certainly follow suit and won't want to play outside.
We also finally found a trail we love right by our home; this was an easy goal that just took a lot time to get to! The park the trail is in actually has six different trails all ranked by difficulty, which is helpful for our family's various needs. Our first time there was so peaceful and beautiful. I look forward to going back and venturing further into the path. I'm also looking forward to picking up a few new snow-play-time habits now that Bro is comfortably walking and can keep up better with us. I was able to score him some gently used Sorel boots for $12.00 and know they will get great use.
