Remember when I posted about my family goals for spring? I made a mental note to check up on our progress midway through spring …
… and holy cow we’re halfway to summer, you guys! June 21 is coming at us like a roaring F/A-18. Yikes! I have just six more weeks to work through the rest of my list. But first, what can I cross off?
(Because we all know the best part of a list is crossing it off!)
We had a great Passover/Easter, and I could almost check off “Get through Passover without a screaming baby.” It went much more smoothly than last year; I didn’t have to leave the table to put her to bed while also missing 80% of it. However, she still cried quite a bit. We just took her out of her high chair and let her roam around while we finished the Seder.
Our garden is growing very slowly – yay for green beans but boo for some withering yellow squash and cucumber.
We’ve had some fun days – at the zoo, flying our kite on the lawn one windy day, and many happy days playing outside with Baby finally unafraid to walk on grass like a normal child!
My closets are in much better shape than this winter, though there is some more I’m willing to do. And I still have to actually donate the clothes I pulled out….
But what else do I want to do this spring?
I want to go on a hike very badly! At least one, actually. Once the weather cooperates a bit more and we’re not sick (yep, item #2 will not be crossed off, thanks to last week’s cold), we’ll do that! And maybe that afternoon Toddler will want to try trike riding again … now that she can properly reach the pedals.
On the personal side, the jogging can begin any time now, mama. It’s warm enough and light out after the girls go to bed. No excuses, me!! And I’ve technically restarted my non-blog writing (took a winter hiatus for other creative endeavors), but not enough to satisfy my urge to cross off.
But I still have six weeks to do all this! Allll the time in the world!
What do you have still to do this spring? What have you accomplished?

Thank you for entering, everyone, and again for reading my blog. Even if you didn’t win, I encourage you to try Piggy Paint if it’s up your alley (I found them first at Target, FYI).
