When my kids were very small, we had monthly themes on our bulletin board, for our homeschool lessons, and to order our daily lives.
As the kids get older, the themes aren’t quite so vivid. I enjoy the liturgical calendar, the natural cycles of the world, and celebrating the flow and small events in our lives.
We loved these themed Calendar Connections.
We’ve packed away the holiday decorations except for the pretty candle holders and front door wreath.
I’m still sweeping up Christmas tree needles, and I’m sure I will still find some in June.
I feel like a refresh. I’m cleaning and organizing, minimizing and streamlining.
It’s been cold but sunny and that makes me happy.
We totally binge watched The Witcher and Lost in Space the last couple weeks. I ate too much, laid around too much, and neglected most of the regular cleaning. I was a slug.
January offers fun calendar themes to begin again or refresh while continuing what’s working well.
Discuss new beginnings, resolutions, goals, self improvement, growth mindset.
