New Years Resolutions

We have a couple New Year's Day traditions.  They go like this... we take down the Christmas tree and then fill out our time capsule so we have something to read when we set up the tree next year.  Sometimes we watch old family videos.

We wrote some goals for this year.

They go like this:

Brown Family financial Goals:
Pay off our explorer
Pay off my student loan
Save  XXXX for a rainy day
Buy a New Mattress for Cameron and Melissa's bed (it is way past time.)

Brown Family Fitness Goals
We have a family goal to run more and participate in a 5 K race
Ali wants to run a mile in 8:30
Ashling wants to learn to do the splits
I want to run a mile in 8 minutes
Cameron wants to run in the mornings before work for 15 or 20 minutes
We want to go on a family back packing trip.
Melissa wants to take some ski lessons

Brown Family Spiritual goals
We want to read the Book of Mormon as a family
Go to the temple monthly
Ali wants to read the Book of Mormon all the way through on her own

Brown Family education goals
Cameron wants to pass the seismic part of the PE exam and get PE liscense
Ali wants to get better at science and get a 4.0
Melissa wants to read one classical book on my kindle for every fun book
Ashling wants to read lots of chapter books

Annika has goals too.  Her most important is becoming potty trained and also learning all her ABC's and how to write them.  She is going to work on cutting too and also hiking by herself.
