101 in 1001 for My Kiddos & Me

Another 101 in 1001????  No, I'm not certifiably crazy... well, at least not yet :-)  When I began making my original list, I found that over half of it was made up of goals for or things I'd like to do with my three little ones.  I decided it would be good to separate the two, since believe it or not, the children and I aren't one in the same. 

When looking at the list, you'll notice a lot of absences.  No zoo trips, hikes, game farm, Totter Otterville, church events, etc.  I have not included anything that the three kiddos have already done.  However, there are several things on the list that Caleb has already experienced or can do quite well.  I included these items still because I want to do these things with ALL the children. 

The list contains spiritual goals, academic goals, things to do, and places to go.  Some are quite lofty and others are just plain fun.  Remember we have 2.75 years to complete these :-)  Enjoy our list and try some fun things with your kiddos too.  They are only little once, and what blessings they truly are!!!  Every good and perfect gift is from the Father above.
