Goals 2013, August Update

“A year from now you may wish you had started today.”-Karen Lamb

This past month was a good month for getting a few of my goals accomplished. In August my husband and myself worked on getting two of our home improvement projects done. I cleaned and sealed the deck in the front of our house. We also removed three shrub/trees in our yard and built a new cedar fence to take the place. Which looks very nice, the shrubs were getting a little out of hand and one was dying off.

I have a plan for our new homeschool year. So we are ready to start. I also have been able to publish two guest posts this year so far. So I am on my way to accomplishing that goal too. What about you?

How are your goals for this year coming along?
