August Family Goals Printable and August Blog Goals

I can't believe our summer is half over already!  I know some of your school schedules are different than ours and you're already getting ready for back-to-school season. But my kids have been off for a month and still have a month until they go back.  So we're at exactly the half-way point in our summer.

It's flying by!  We've been enjoying our daily routine as well as our weekly routine.  Although I have to say we've varied from our routines so many times that sometimes I wonder whether it was worth it to make them up!  But, my kids are learning flexibility.  Me too :)  And it's definitely worth having our routines to ensure we still fit in all the things they said they wanted to do on their summer brainstorming lists.

On the blog, July was also focused on the Great Photo Purge Challenge.  I still have a long way to go, but I love seeing progress!  Thanks to all of you who participated and who shared your tips.

And now it's time to share the Aug 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 July posts here.

Last month, I set 3 goals.  Happily, looking back, I see I achieved 2 out of 3 of them.  I launched the photo organizing challenge and wrote about some of the ways I organized our summer.  I did write 1 Organizing Ideas for the Weekend post, but my goal was 3, so I missed the mark there.

I wrote 10 posts overall in July, which is about average.  Not bad, considering how busy I've been with the kids.  This reduced screen time plan for the kids has meant less screen time for me too :)

Here are my goals for August:
  1. Continue the photo organizing challenge {August will be focused on printed photos - I really need to do some work on all my boxes of photos!}
  2. Write at least 3 Organizing Ideas for the Weekend posts {still going to shoot for this one!}
  3. Write about a few more of the organized ways we're having fun this summer {including our cleaning routine and organized camping tips}
Still keeping things simple this month.  My priority is spending time with my kids, but having these goals helps motivate me to make time for blogging too!

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

Happy organizing!
