We keep it Simple.
One Notebook. One Pen.
We ask them to write:
5 Things you are thankful for that occurred in 2016.
5 Things that you would like to do and/or achieve in 2017.
Apparently my 8-year old daughter would like to learn about Ancient Greece in 2017 (#3). So I will try to help her with that with the assistance of Google. Her #2 is my favorite, learn to laugh more.
My husband and I also write in the notebook to hold us accountable.
Another family who had adult children told us they had been doing it for 20+ years and it brings them great joy now to look back and see what they accomplished through out the years. And since I don't remember anything I thought it would be a great tradition to add to our family.
Cheers to your beautiful family!
