My youngest has been watching again Ghostbusters. As we were watching it with him, both my husband and I commented that it would be awesome to update the special effects. Next morning on the radio, I hear that Ghostbuster III is going to be a remake with an all female cast. I think it is an interesting idea. August 28th was National Ghost Busters Day - Remember don't cross the streams. LOL
Because my son really wiped out on his bike, I was reminded that I too reminded that I wiped out on the hill in front of my childhood home. I keep telling him scars have stories. I use to have a great one on my elbow from that wipeout on the hill that I got falling off my bike..
The other day my son asked me to color with him. He is 12. I had things to do but I thought why not. He starts middle school in a few days. I loved slowing down with him. This might be the last time he asks me to do that. Time passes too quickly.
I learn so much from my kids. My oldest (16) is EXTREMELY goal oriented. He made a list of things he wanted to accomplish this summer and I think he did well at accomplishing his goals. I think, often times as parents, we too reevaluate our goals as school starts. I have been using Life as Mom's Post It To Do/journal sheet.
I found that I don't keep this in a 3 ring notebook until I finished the week. So I put it in a sheet protector and place the post it on top of the protector. I usually only cross off This Week Goals and This Month Goals once a day. The sheet was getting ratty without the protector as I seem to carry it around.. All my little notes - grocery list, books to read, quotes I write on the back of this sheet.
I made some tweaks and I find myself accomplishing more using this tool. I am goal setting. I needed that. I hate to give up my handy dandy notebooks but this is making sense to me right now.
