July Family Goals Printable and July Blog Goals

Happy Canada Day!  I'm so excited that it's July!  Summer is finally here.  My kids finished school on Friday and we are already enjoying our summer holidays.

June was a busy month with end of school celebrations, my son's baseball games and practices, Father's Day, and family birthdays.  Plus we transitioned from me working to my hubby working.  We're getting pretty good at those transitions, but it's always an adjustment.

Now we're making lots of plans for the summer.  More on that soon.

On the blog, June was mostly about the You've Got {Too Much} Email challenge.  I love my clean inbox!  Thanks to all of you who participated and who shared your tips.

It's time to share the July Family Goals printable with you!

{A few months ago I posted about how we use our monthly family goals sheet and I share a new one each month so you can also create a monthly goals page in your family.}

I really hope this page helps you achieve your goals this month in your family!  

OK, on to the second part of this post... my monthly goals for the blog.

If you've missed any posts last month, you can read all the June posts here.

Last month, I set 5 goals.  And looking back, I see I achieved... well... really only 1 of them.  I deleted a ton more emails and encouraged others to do the same through the challenge.  I did write 1 Organizing Ideas for the Weekend post.  But that's hardly consistent.  I didn't finish our upstairs bathroom or blog about it.  And I didn't finish the blog maintenance tasks I'd planned.  Also, sadly, I won't be contributing yet to Motherhood on a Dime so no post written this month.  The hope is to start in the fall instead.

I don't really have an excuse for only achieving 1 goal.  Or at least I won't make one up :)

But, despite the fact that I rarely achieve all my blog goals, I still want to set them.  Gives me something to shoot for.

Here are my goals for July:
  1. Launch a photo organizing challenge {stay tuned for that!}
  2. Write at least 3 Organizing Ideas for the Weekend posts {a more measurable goal than last month!}
  3. Write about some of the organized ways we're having fun this summer {that one's a little vague... not sure how much blogging time I'll have now that the kiddos are home!}
Keeping things simple this month.  Last summer I didn't have a lot of time to blog because I was busy with my kids.  I'm working out a schedule right now that will hopefully provide me with some alone slightly uninterrupted time during the day to fit some blogging in.  I'm usually too wiped once they're in bed to do much then!  I'll share our summer routine soon :)

So, what are your family, personal, or blog goals for July?  How are you staying or getting organized this summer?

Happy organizing!
