Resolutions

Daniel in December 2006 contemplating his resolutions for 2007.
I ran into my dear friend, Maria, at the gym today. As we huffed and puffed side by side on the cardio equipment in the parent/tot room, we talked about our resolutions for the upcoming year. I've never really taken the whole "New Year's resolution" concept seriously. However, for fun, I'll make a list of various fun things the 5 of us would like to accomplish in 2008.
* Megan would like to learn to fly a kite. (Guess who loves Mary Poppins?)
* Joshua would like to play soccer again next summer.
* Daniel will be out of diapers. We are excited about this because we've been changing diapers since July of 2002.
* We'll be moving into a new house (not sure where, not sure when, but we know it will happen!)
* Joshua would like to learn to ride his bike without training wheels.
* Daddy looks forward to riding his bike more often next year as well.
* We plan to take a family vacation in 2008.
* I plan on adding 30 new recipes to our recipe book in 2008 (That's roughly 3 per month, with some wiggle-room).
* Megan wants to learn to read like Joshua.
These aren't real measureable goals. But it's fun to think of what the new year has the potential to bring.

Let's hear it for no diapers! How shallow am I that out of all those great and noble goals I perk up on the one that involves... poop?

I guess that makes me someone who changed a lot of diapers. It resonates! I can't help it! :) :)

Happy New Year!!!

No, you aren't allowed to leave! I'm going to call the detailer and tell him you want to stay....forever! Nah, I'm kidding. I know you want to be near family and I completely understand that. Doesn't make me like it though!
