Dear Families,

Wow, another year passing and a new one beginning!  I don’t know about you but I am not good with New Year’s Resolutions.

There is a Chinese Proverb that says, “A JOURNEY OF A THOUSAND MILES MUST BEGIN WITH A SINGLE STEP.”

How true that is!  We teach our students to set goals and reach to achieve them.  My goal, my resolution, is to be more active.  Of course, I downloaded Beachbody on Demand 2 months ago and pledged to get up earlier to work out.  Have I done it, no!  I guess I need to take that single step.

I urge you to enjoy time with your family and friends this holiday season and to set goals with your children.  What will your journey look like?  Do you need to work together to unplug more and connect as a family?  Maybe it is getting to school on time or improving attendance?  Does your child long for a solo at the concert?– set up a practice chart at home.  Perhaps reading night-time stories for some quality time is what your child wants?  Or improving that foul shot with a couple extra minutes at the gym after practice?

I do know that none of us will wish we had slept in more or watched more Netflix later when our little ones have grown up and left the house.  A lesson I need to remind myself of when I am tired and drained.

So, what will your first small step be?  Me– hopefully it will involve getting up when that alarm goes off, the first time!

Happy Holidays!!
