Goodbye won't be missed

2010 has been a tough year...we won't be sad to see it go!! I remembered today that I did this post at the beginning of the the spirit of seeing how well we did with meeting our goes:

1. Pay off all debt (student loans and cars) and only have our house mortgage left. (If you aren't convinced this is a good thing, check out Dave Ramsey)

We paid off over $20k in debt! This is outside of our regular monthly payments. :)

2. Simon will have a job, starting his new career as a Police Officer.

This was a VERY stressful one this year...God came through at the last minute and on the 29th Simon got an offer from the City of Boulder. He will be starting January 10th!!!!!!!

3. Jessica will work less. This means 40-45 hours a week outside of year end.

I did great at this one...even took two weeks off over Christmas. ;)

4. Bella will start school at Dayspring Christian Academy for 6th grade.

Yep, did this one too...she LOVES it.

5. David will talk!

David started 2010 with less than 10 words. He now has over 50 and is saying some three word sentences!! This has been such a great thing for him...

6. Nicky will start reading.

Not so much, but he can read and write his name. (In hindsight this might have been a little ambitious as he only turned 4 in Nov)

7. The entire family will spend more time worshiping our Savior together.

We have done a great job at attending church. Simon and Bella have started reading the bible together and made it through Genesis so far...

As for 2011...I will post those tomorrow....
