Happy New Year all! Hope you find 2010 to be a wonderful new year with lots of promise for you! Last year I found a blogger who picks a word and makes it her "word" for the year. It's a word that a goal for the upcoming year and I loved the idea. Last year, I chose the word determined and one of my goals was to take a trip to Disney World and I was indeed determined enough to make it happen. However, I also chose to be determined to workout more and that didn't quite materialize like I envisioned, but it was a good try.
So, here are the Broekers' words for this upcoming new year.....I plan to get my life better organized in '10. This includes my kitchen drawers, to my classroom files, to my purse and feeling like I have a better balance with work and home life.
Let's just say Andy isn't very happy about playing this "game". He picked patience again this year. He said it was tested in '09 and he sees it being tested again this year. We'll have to see if he passes the patience test by 2011.
Tyler wants to succeed this year in school as well as in sports. Tyler says, "I chose this word because it's the only word I could think of and I want to be successful." Okay...so he's a bit like his father.
Madison chose energized because she wants to become a better soccer player in 2010.
Grant really didn't choose this word. In fact, I asked for a word and he said, "three, one, two, five." I guess he thought I said pick a number. Anyway, I chose this word for Grant since I am wanting him to become more appropriate than inappropriate when out in public. Grant needs to find his indoor voice and work on some of his behaviors that include...pouting, screaming and throwing fits which are just to name a few. I will say he's pretty darn cute even though he's one rowdy three year old!
Here's to a fantastic 2010! Please leave your One Little Word under the comments section. We would love to hear what's going to motivate you for the new year!
