Setting Monthly Goals for June 2016

I set monthly goals to define what I want to accomplish, to stay focused, and to keep goals attainable. Come link up your goals every month! You can start out with your monthly goals for June! Feel free to link up an Instagram photo if you don’t have a blog.

May flew by as the months always seem to, and I find myself setting monthly goals for June 2016! This month will be very busy for us! We are at my brother’s graduation today, then his wedding in a couple of days. We then come home for a few days before leaving once again – this time for one month in Scotland!

First, let’s take a look at how I did with my monthly goals for May.

  • Make at least one photo book: Fail. I did work on this for the first two Sundays this month. Then some unexpected things came up and it didn’t happen.
  • Edit personal photos for at least 15 minutes every week day. I didn’t do this every day, but I did edit more photos this month. I’m still behind, but not as behind as I was before.
  • Square up the sewn rectangles for Lily’s quilt so they are ready to be pieced together. Done! I have a wonderful collection of rectangles waiting to be sewn together – probably once we return from Scotland.
  • Have the kids write thank you letters to their teachers. Done! We also made some lovely teacher gifts, which I will be blogging about later this month. Too late to be of any use as teacher gifts, but I think still interesting to readers as a beautiful gift that children can make to give to others.

I’ll give myself a C- for goals for May. I spent the second half of the month investigating one very exciting opportunity. I will let you know if it comes through.

Monthly Goals for June 2016

Here are my monthly goals for June 2016. They are simple, because we are spending half the month overseas (Mike is taking 16 students; the four kids and I are lucky enough to be along for the ride). Focus areas are in italics.

  • Enjoy my brother’s wedding. Gratitude.
  • Enjoy our trip to Scotland! Gratitude, mindful living, and learning.
  • Look into how to get over jetlag as quickly as possible so that we can make the most of our trip. Mindful living and learning.

Photo books and photo editing and sewing will happen where and when they can, but they don’t get goal status for June.

  1. I saw your quilt in Instagram, but I never thought that you would make the Metro Twist! Good luck! Can’t wait to see your quilt project.

    So excited for you to get a month in Scotland!!! June and July are excellent times to be there, too. Win-win!

    Curious about your opportunity and hope it all works out if it’s meant to be!

    1. Looks like it won’t work out (it was a house), but we just won a good lottery number in the university housing draw, so we will have a house by the end of 2018 at least.

  3. I need to do several photo books. I’m putting it off because I don’t like the interface of any of the places I’ve tried. Waaaaa, poor Ticia.

  4. We can still use your teacher gift ideas. We have 3 more weeks of school! I usually give books to teachers that I have authors personalize to them. I collect them all year from the author events that I go to. They do love books!
