September Family Goals Printable and September Blog Goals

I can't believe summer holidays are over already and the kids are going back to school this week!  I know some of your school schedules are different than ours and your kids have already been in school for a few weeks. But my kids start on Tuesday.  So we're enjoying every last minute of summer holidays that we can :)

Summer flew by!  I've got a summer wrap-up post coming so I won't go into details here.  But as I mentioned earlier this month, our summer was busier than I expected it to be, with my son's baseball games and my hubby's work schedule.

So things were pretty quiet on the blog front in August.  I delayed the Great Photo Purge Challenge until September.  And I let myself off the hook for finishing all the organizing and cleaning projects I'd planned to do and blog about this summer.  I did co-host for the Wonderful Wednesday Blog Hop each week and I loved meeting new people and checking out some great ideas.

And now it's time to share the September 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.}

Aren't those pencils perfect for back-to-school season? :)

With the busy fall season approaching, it's important to be intentional about how you want to spend your time as a family.  Setting and recording monthly goals is a great way to help you accomplish the things you want to!

I plan to continue using this printable with my family this school year.  My kids have now started to think about goals for themselves each month.  It's great to see!  And near the end of the month they think about topics they'd like to discuss at our monthly family meeting.

We don't always achieve our goals, but we're doing better at them than we did before we started writing them down!

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 August posts here.

Last month, I set 3 goals.  And....didn't achieve any of them.

So here are my goals for September {they may look familiar!}.
  1. Continue the photo organizing challenge {September will be focused on printed photos}
  2. Write at least 2 Organizing Ideas for the Weekend posts {I know this is a popular series so I want to get back to it this month!}
  3. Write about a few more of the organized ways we had fun this summer and how we're getting organized for fall.
September is a transition month for our family as my hubby will likely be working less and I will likely be working more.  And of course the kids start school and various lessons and activities.

This means "new" routines for all of us and I'll share them with you and give you tips for organizing your family this fall.

So, what are your family, personal, or blog goals for September?  How are you getting organized for fall?

Happy organizing!
