The lovely Sarah Mae over at Like a Warm Cup of Coffee is hosting a 12 New Things challenge. The idea is to learn a new skill every month for the next year and I love it!

So here is my list.

August: Learn how to stick to a home schedule

September: Learn how to take care of a newborn girl WITH two active boys around (not my own baby – I’ll be watching a dear friend’s precious little girl!)

October: Learn how to show my husband love and RESPECT better

November: Make homemade bread without a bread machine

December: Learn new activities to promote good manners and respect with my children

January: Learn how to decorate several areas of our home inexpensively

February: Learn to write, speak and sing a praise song in Swahili (the native language of our Compassion child, Samson)

March: Learn to sew with a sewing machine (either a friend’s or get one by then!)

April: Learn how to plant herbs and/or flowers

May: Learn how to change a tire

June: Learn how to make the most of what’s in my closet

July: Learn canning (spaghetti sauce, salsa, etc.)


Why not join the 12 Things Challenge?! And if you don’t blog, just check in with a comment to say what you’re learning and how it is going!
