Jon loves a good list of goals. Seriously, a lot. He says we get more done when we have goals. So we just recently had a goal-setting date and we put our heads together and set some goals for ourselves and our family.
One of my goals was to establish “family traditions”. Is it weird to premeditate new traditions? Does that defeat the point of traditions, to be really intentional about them?
I would like your ideas on some traditions that have blessed your family. With Christmas quickly approaching, I would also like holiday specific ones.
Give me some feedback on this one.
A new tradition did start in my family this year. It was my brother, Jay’s idea. The Saturday after Thanksgiving Football game. My side of the family and cousins, aunts and uncles drove about 2 1/2 hours and played against the Schwabs. It was a great time even though The Littles and I were only fans and spent most time inside. :)
It was pretty hardcore and some great play.
The Littles were not too impressed with football.
The biggest bummer of the day, Jay and Jeff got sick that morning. They spent most of the day looking something like this.
Our family’s players
It was a close game, pretty evenly matched, but we lost.
Hopefully having the home team advantage next year will work in our favor. Thanks Schwabs for the great day!
Now it is your turn to share. What are some traditions you love?
