“Ride a camel”
Today we began working on a list of family goals for the year. Nouarie has already contributed quite a few, such as:
•Take Noutin to the fair
•Go apple picking
•Pet a goat
That camel one is a big deal. She totally thought of it on her own.
Last year, she was too small to ride a camel at the Oasis Camel Dairy, even though she was old enough. She knows she has to wait until she's 5 or older to do most things, like her dream of going to kindergarten. She must have remembered that we said "next year" when left the camel dairy in July. It's going to head to the top of our list!
Guys, know that Bucket List Family has been trending lately thanks to their misleading giveaway schemes? I almost called our 2020 family goals list a bucket list, but it's totally not. We're not trying to do things before we kick the bucket. We want to have experiences that fill our buckets.
As Nouarie's contributions remind me, our family's happiness comes from simple and familiar things. This year, we will look forward to celebrating exciting milestones, such as hearing Noutin's first word, and repeat things, such as eating s'mores in our backyard with the neighbors.
Who else is making a 2020 family goals list? What's on yours? If you don't, you should join us and make one! It's our first time, too.
