2016 Resolutions Review

With 2016 past the midpoint, I thought it might be a good idea to review my resolutions from the beginning of the year and see how I am doing.

  • Turn my kindergarten classroom into a miniature nature center  - Well on the way. I've acquired lots of cool items and am just starting to prepare my room for the next stage
  • Revise some of my picture book manuscripts and maybe start submitting them a bit more regularly. You can't get published if you don't try. - I wish. While I have added many ideas to my picture book chart, my revising has come to basically a halt while other priorities have taken over. I have more recently dipped back into my writing.
  • Less pizza and more push ups! - I plead the 5th.
  • Learn how to type - Does hunt and peck really fast count? If not, then no.
  • Restore a prairie (bit by bit)  -Yes, with the help of my forest kindergarten friends.
  • Expand the forest kindergarten program I am blessed to lead -Definitely!
  • Less soda and more sit ups! - Can you plead the 5th twice?
  • Tweet better  (@TykeHiker) - Not so much.
  • Wake up earlier so I can better reach everything mentioned above :)  - Yes. With the help of my daughter (at least the waking up part).
Looks like I have some serious work to do in the remaining months of 2016. here we go.
