May 2022 Goals

I know that it is the middle of May – May 18th to be exact. I still think it is important that I review my goals from April and put my goals for May out into the universe, so here we are. May hit me like a truck. We started with tech week and a very big adjustment for our cast and crew – one of our male leads was removed from the show and replaced with another actor on Monday of tech week. This meant we were scrambling to make sure he had the costumes he needed, as well as putting finishing touches to the rest of the costumes from the show. Throw in a broken zipper that needed replaced, finishing some custom-made pieces, and replacing a couple of shattered buttons and you had a recipe for crazy. Opening night and the second performance were wonderful, and we were looking forward to the rest of the show weekend.

Saturday morning, we got the news that the last 2 shows were being postponed, then we got the news that it was COVID related. My daughter tested and ended up as one of the positives – we never would have known because her case was very minor, thank goodness. The show has been rescheduled and we are gearing up for a successful conclusion this weekend. Everything seemed to be going smoothly again!

Then, Monday, I was hit with a horribly sore throat and no voice. That began my quarantine period which I spent mostly sleeping and watching a little bit of YouTube – I find bullet journaling and bento box videos really calming to watch. What was supposed to be a busy but wonderful week that included a visit from my parents, a theatre showcase, Prom, and a choir concert was suddenly very open. I did watch a few trainings. I drove my daughter to her mani/pedi and brow waxing appointments. I did her prom hair, but did not get to go to pictures. It was a very disappointing week.

This week, however, has started off really well. I do not have my voice or energy fully back, but I am out of quarantine (still masking) and able to work. I am attending a few fun things, including a networking event tonight and Wicked tomorrow night, and I am looking very forward to being a costume mom again on Friday.

Looking at my goals for April, I am actually really pleasantly surprised that I accomplished more than I thought. Here is my list and my review:

  • At least one: Adventure Date, Create Date, and Family Game Night – we did an Adventure and a Create date, but no Family Game Night. It was a really busy month.
  • Use SEO to edit current Outschool classes and update listings for summer- I have not looked into SEO, but I did update my listings for summer.
  • Add 10 new products to my TpT store – this should bring me to 50 – I made it to 50 products at the last possible second. But I did it!!
  • Create 6 blog posts, 25 Instagram posts, 25 Facebook posts, and 30 Pinterest pins – My stats were: 3 blog posts, 18 Instagram posts, 16 Facebook posts, and no Pinterest pins. I have a bunch of products and classes I need to get up on Pinterest.
  • Update TpT Play-Doh products to Modeling Dough products and work on Previews – I did not work on this at all.
  • Write 3 new Outschool classes including one escape room type class and finish summer schedule – I finished my summer schedule, but I did not write any new classes.
  • Make dinner 3 times a week – I did not do this – my average was probably 1.5x a week.
  • Walk 3 times a week – I actually did 9 walks in April, so that is over 2 per week.
  • Go on 6 hikes – I went on 3 hikes in April.
  • Log food and workouts in My Fitness Pal – I did not do this at all.

I felt that I hadn’t done well with goals, so I am pleasantly surprised to be sitting at about a 6 out of 10 this month. While I always want to hit my goals completely, I also always set bigger goals than I think I can complete. It’s the best way to push myself to accomplish more.

As we head into summer, I am trying to leave time in my schedule (and goals) to rest and relax. I am still pretty fatigued, so I am taking that into account for this month. Also, there are less than 2 weeks left in May, so I am going to try to set some smaller goals here and see how it goes.

  • Add 10 products to my TpT store.
  • Write 1 flex class and 1 escape room style class for Outschool.
  • Make 5 blog posts, 15 Instagram posts, 15 Facebook posts, and 20 Pinterest pins.
  • Update Play-Doh listings on TpT to reflect copyright laws.
  • An Adventure Date, Create Date, and Family Game Night.
  • Pay quarterly estimates.
  • Reserve tours and tickets for while we are in Seattle in July.
  • Make dinner at home 12 times.
  • Walk 4 times (energy depending).
  • Hike 2 times (energy depending).

Looking at this list, the thing I can see myself struggling with the most is making 12 dinners – any quick and easy recipes you can recommend? I have a few we haven’t had for a while, but I feel like I am in a rut as far as coming up with fun things to eat. If only we didn’t have to have dinner every. single. night…. Lol!

I hope you have a wonderful May – or what is left of it. Let me know below what goals you are working on this month so we can cheer each other on. 🙂

February 2022 Adventure Date – Sistine Chapel Exhibition

This month found us traveling to Dayton to see the Sistine Chapel Exhibition. I was quite excited about this since I don’t know that we will ever travel to Vatican City to see the real thing. The advertising photos of the exhibit were amazing – darkened hallways full of perfectly hung and lit artwork. It looked very dramatic and like an almost intimate exhibit with a clear direction and lots of space.

Well, as we all know, looks can be very deceiving. I am sure that this art was hung somewhere like the pictures in the past, but for this exhibition, it was tilted against walls that were not really tall enough, so it all leaned away from you. It was bottom lit in a very bright, open room, so it really lost all of the ambience I was expecting. It was also difficult to navigate as there wasn’t a clear path, so people were going all directions. There was also an audio tour you could listen to, either on listening devices they provided or on your phone. The listening devices were not distracting – they were quiet and people held them to their ears to hear. The phones were very loud and definitely made it difficult to read or really get lost in the artwork.

In spite of the chaotic atmosphere, I was eventually able to “settle in” to the experience and really focus on the art. It was amazing to see up close – a very different view than you would ever get in person. You could see the expressions and light and shadows and movement in the paintings so well. It was all out of order, but of course the first thing was The Creation of Adam. There were also many other Old Testament stories in a sort of side passageway – these were the most dramatically lit, were actually mounted fully upright, and also felt the most secluded for viewing.

The bulk of the rest of the paintings fell into 3 categories – Prophet portraits, Sibyl portraits, and The Lineage of Christ family tableaus. The prophets and Sibyls were all people that had foretold part of the story of Christ, and they were all pictured with 2 messengers of God who seemed to be delivering inspiration or information. The lineage of Christ family tableaus showed ancestors of Christ as children with their fathers and mothers to evoke the holy family of Joseph, Mary, and Jesus. I thought these paintings suffered a little from the fact that they were leaned away from us – it would have been pretty amazing had they seemed to be looking down at us instead of fading away. We did think the implied movement and light in these paintings was really breathtaking. Here are a few favorites.

In the middle of the large room of artwork, there was a large reproduction of The Last Judgement. This is a very symbolic and interesting piece that I could have sat and looked at for a long time. I was also one of the youngest in the room, so the benches were not for me. Nevertheless, we did stand and ponder it for quite a while. It contains 390 separate characters, including Jesus, Mary, John the Baptist, saints, martyrs, angels, chosen ones headed towards heavenly bliss, and sinners headed towards eternal damnation. I did not get a good angle to get a full shot, but here are some closer photos of the figures. I find St. Bartholemew (who was martyred by being flayed and is pictured below Christ and to the right just a bit) pretty disturbing with his empty meat suit…

All in all, we walked out pretty happy that we had seen the art, but not fully pleased with how it was presented. We give it 3 out of 5 stars and have found that we hope to see the real thing someday if possible.

Have you been to any excellent art exhibits lately? Did you see the Sistene Chapel Exhibition? Or the real thing in Vatican City? Let me know in the comments!

February 2022 Goals

It is inexplicably the first of February – how did we get here so fast? It doesn’t seem possible, but here we are. Anyway, it is time to recap my January 2022 goals and look at what I want to accomplish for this month. I am actually really pleasantly surprised by what I was able to accomplish last month – not all of my goals, but lots of solid progress.

  • At least one: Adventure Date, Create Date, and Family Game Night – Yes! We did all of this!
  • Write a 1:1 Phonics class on Outschool – Yup, in fact, I also made this 1:1 Confident Speakers class and this Scavenger Hunt Show-and-Tell class.
  • Add 10 new products to my Teachers Pay Teachers StoreAnother yes! In fact, I added 15! which brings me up to 25 products.
  • Create 6 blog posts, Instagram posts, Facebook posts, and Pinterest pins – I did 5 blog posts, but I also did 24 Instagram posts, 27 Facebook posts, and 17 Pinterest pins. I’m going to count this as accomplished.
  • Make dinner 4 times a week – I did this 3/4 weeks – we had a pretty major family emergency when my daughter totaled her car this month (she is doing okay, no worries), so I am also pleased with this.
  • Go on 4 hikes – Only made it out 3 times, but with the family emergency, it just wasn’t a priority.
  • Walk at least 3 times a week – I logged 15 walks, so I am going to count this as done.
  • Log food and workouts on My Fitness Pal – I logged everyday starting January 3rd and I am down 4.8 pounds so far.
  • Record videos for Crafty Phonics – Letter R Club flex classI did this and I feel very proud of them – just waiting on some learners for that class now.
  • Use my planner as a journal every morning and evening – I love my Rocketbook Panda Planner and I did use it everyday!

It feels really good to have done so well in so many areas. I am really looking forward to seeing how this month goes since it will be pretty busy. I hope that I have now put systems in place to keep things going in the right direction even when I have more going on. For this month, I have a lot of the same goals, but some variations.

  • At least one: Adventure Date, Create Date, and Family Game Night.
  • Use SEO to edit current Outschool classes to increase enrollment.
  • Add 10 new products to my Teachers Pay Teachers Store.
  • Create 6 blog posts, Instagram posts, Facebook posts, and Pinterest pins.
  • Make dinner 4 times a week.
  • Go on 4 hikes.
  • Walk 3 times a week and lift weights 2 times a week.
  • Log food and workouts on My Fitness Pal.
  • Work on photography and previews for my TpT products.
  • Write 2 new Outschool classes including one escape room type class.

I am feeling really excited to start working on some new things this month. I have a lot to learn about SEO, product photography, and escape rooms, but I am really looking forward to learning new things.

Winter Wonderland Game – How to Make a Seasonal Candyland Board

I don’t know about you, but I love to play board games. You may recall all of our family game nights and trips to game cafes – there’s just something about eating yummy snacks and moving tiny figures around a board. When I started teaching on Outschool, I knew that I wanted to share games with my students, but it took me a while to figure out how that was going to work. I am happy to say that I seem to have cracked part of the code, and I’m here today to share one of my very favorites with you.

I have played many a game of Candyland, so I knew that I wanted to make a game that would play similar but online. Once I got my Canva subscription (which you should run to your computer and do right now if you do any type of designing), I realized I had everything I needed to create a fun game board, spinner, and cards. I am here today to walk you through creating the same type of game – but it doesn’t have to be winter. It could be candy and monster themed for Halloween. It could be a fun spring trip through different flowers. The only limit here is your imagination. Whatever version you are going to make, you will follow a few basic steps.

Step 1: You need to create a fun background for your game board. It should have different terrains and elevations for visual appeal and optimal game play. I chose a winter wonderland with an icy bridge, chilly waterfall, mountains, trees, and some hills.

Step 2: You need to decide where you are going to make the start and where your end goal will be. On this board, I chose to start by the waterfall and then inserted an Ice Palace in the distance to welcome players to the end of the game.

Step 3: It is now time to create a winding path from your starting point to your end goal. I chose to use blue hexagons because they gave me chilly vibes and they meant the path could naturally twist and still interlock.

Step 4: This is my favorite step. This is the part where you get to make 6-7 creative checkpoint areas. These will be the areas of the board that you put on the cards that players will draw throughout the game. They will either be thrilled to skip ahead of everyone else or crushed to have to retrace their steps by moving back. I love to give these spaces personality and really play up how fun they might be to the kids – Don’t eat too many marshmallows in the fort! Be careful, they might be throwing snowballs up ahead! Don’t worry, the Yeti looks scary, but he’s really a big softie. 🙂

Step 5: You have created your areas, now you need to add some sort of marking to the actual spaces that people will go to when they draw those cards. I like to be sure there are 5-7 spaces between the special spaces, but you can make them as close or far apart as you like.

Step 6: Now is the time to make really fun names for all of your special areas. If my students are working on specific sounds, I will try to put them in all of the areas. If I have a mixed group or we are just working on language, I don’t stack sounds as much. This is another really fun step – I love making up names!

Step 7: The last step is also a naming step – you need to name your game. The name here was obvious before I even made the board, but please feel free to be as creative as you can with your name.

That’s it! You have a finished game board! Now you just need a spinner (make a circle like the one below and use a pencil and paperclip to spin) and some special cards (black and white versions are easiest on your printer).

Of course, if you don’t want to reinvent the horse, and if you would like some really nice words lists for L, R, S, and TH sounds, I have already done all of the work and you could just buy this resource in my Teachers Pay Teachers store. It can be found under Winter Wonderland Game with R, L, S, and TH Target Words. I have a few other winter and arctic animal themed games coming really soon and a free SZ Snowman Guess Who Game available as well. I hope you will check it out and click the heart to follow me so you don’t miss any of my new products. You could also join my email list if you want to be the first to know all of my news.

Processing…
Success! You're on the list.

What was your favorite board game as a kid? What about now? Leave me a note in the comments if you found this helpful or if you have a suggestion for another game I should try to make. I have some others coming soon, but I am always looking for new ideas. Have a winter wonderful day! 🙂

And So It Begins – January 2022 Goals

The beginning of the year always feels so exciting. A fresh new start – like a field of new snow without footprints where we can blaze a new trail. Endless possibilities. Sounds wonderful doesn’t it? And also completely terrifying! How do I know I am choosing to focus on the “right” things? What if I choose the wrong goals and I don’t meet them? It can be almost crippling.

This year, I had the privilege of working through a goal setting course by Becca Davis. It was so great because it made me look back before looking forward. I had to process what I thought and felt about last year before looking ahead to the future. It was such a simple thing, but honestly, not something I had ever thought to do before. It really made a BIG difference in how I looked at setting goals for this year. Seriously, I would 100% recommend the course if you are interested in making goals that will actually get you to the life you want to be living. You can see a sneak peek of the course materials below.

I also joined an awesome social selling membership that will include a lot of training and support this year, and I have enjoyed the goal setting things we have done over there, too. An Outschool Facebook group I am a part of is also doing some awesome trainings and reading some great books this year. I am seriously so excited for all the possibilities.

So, what does this all mean for the Blog? It means there will be a monthly goal post where I tell you the goals I have for the coming month and also recap how the previous month went. Being that this is the first goal setting post, I obviously won’t have anything to recap. I can tell you that I met exactly 1 of the many, many goals I tried to make last January. So, there’s nowhere to go but up this year. 🙂

For January 2022 (wow – first time I’ve typed that. It’s so weird!), my goals are:

  • At least one: Adventure Date, Create Date, and Family Game Night.
  • Write a 1:1 Phonics class on Outschool.
  • Add 10 new products to my Teachers Pay Teachers Store.
  • Create 6 blog posts, Instagram posts, Facebook posts, and Pinterest pins.
  • Make dinner 4 times a week.
  • Go on 4 hikes.
  • Walk at least 3 times a week.
  • Log food and workouts on My Fitness Pal.
  • Record videos for Crafty Phonics – Letter R Club flex class.
  • Use my planner as a journal every morning and evening – I love my Rocketbook Panda Planner!

Do you make goals? Do you do it by year? Quarter? Month? What are you working towards this month? Let’s cheer each other on – if you plan it, you can achieve it! Let’s go! 🙂

I would love to stay in touch – please join my email list if you want to follow my adventures for this year.

February 2020 Adventure Date

Our February Adventure Date did not go as planned. We had tickets to go to the Byrd Polar and Climate Research Center at The Ohio State University to see their facility. We were going to get to check out how cold their storage for their ice core samples was, along with learning all about their important research. We were very excited. We left with twice the amount of time we needed to get to campus on a normal evening. And then it snowed. And traffic was crazy because, oh my gosh – water falling from the sky! And we ended up really, really late. So, we went to Starbucks, knowing that we could always get two adventure dates in March to make up for it. After all, all of the shows and events we were working on in late February would be over by mid March, right?

Well, here we are in the strangest March I have ever know. Social distancing and staying home is the order of the day, so our schedule actually cleared up about a week earlier than expected. Thankfully, we are a resourceful family, and our library system is awesome. Keith had reserved the game Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening months ago when it came out for the Nintendo Switch. As luck would have it, we got to the front of the line at the beginning of March, just before the library was closed for the foreseeable future.

So, full disclosure, Keith did play this game back in 1993 when it was released for the Gameboy. I did not, but we agreed that we probably didn’t want to pay $60 for a remake game. We honestly weren’t sure how much Keith would remember – it turned out that we didn’t need to worry. Nevertheless, we were pretty excited to start playing on March 8th, a few days before things got crazy. Our only regret is that we played so much of it before we were home all the time… 😉

In the game, you are trying to get all of the instruments that are needed to wake the Windfish. Warning, this post will probably have spoilers, so if you don’t want to see images from the game or know information before you play, please stop reading now. For real, I only have a few photos, and they are mainly things we needed for hints later and then photos of the end. 🙂

This game was really enjoyable. It had a lot of dungeons, complete with puzzles. There were plenty of side quests, and even a couple things we needed to look up hints for because we had no idea how much time we would actually have the game. (We thought the library would need it back way before it seems it will….) We would definitely recommend playing this – if you are in the Columbus Metropolitan Library area, you could absolutely borrow this for a couple weeks and play through. If you are outside Columbus, I would actually pay the $60 for this game. It took a good amount of time to get through, so you will definitely get your money’s worth. Here are the photos I remembered to take of the game. I won’t tell you which mysteries they help solve, though, you’ll have to figure that out yourself.

See, I told you there were spoilers. I won’t completely ruin the ending, though. You’ll have to play to see what happens after the Windfish (which is neither wind nor fish!) awakens.

Have you played Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening? Let us know what you thought of it in the comments!

44 for 44

Today is my 44th birthday. I have been excited about turning 44 for years – I know that is strange, but it’s true. I really love the number four, so turning 40 was amazing. So, it logically follows that 44 will be my favorite age yet. I am a fan of lists and goals (big surprise, I know), so I sat down this weekend and made a list of 44 things I want to do as a 44 year old. Realistically, this list will probably take more than a year, but I really do think I can accomplish all of this in the not-too-distant future. So, without further ado, here is my list. ❤️

April Create Date Do-over Update

As you may recall, our April Create Date was a frustrating and unsuccessful pottery night. Because of the generosity of the owner of Bareclay Studio, we were able to give it another shot at the end of June.

Keith ended up coming but not working for very long because he wasn’t feeling very well. He still sat with me while I worked even though he could have driven himself home as we had driven separately. I made the interesting discovery that I throw pottery left-handed. I chose the wheel next to Keith, and after I was finished with my first piece, the instructor made some comment about me being left handed. I told her that was not the case, but I am ambidextrous at some tasks. I was able to pretty quickly get two pieces that we liked ready to be glazed and fired in the kiln.

I patiently waited about a month to email and make sure that our bowls were ready to be picked up. I got to pick them up this week, and you guys, I am so glad we revisited this create date! I love how these bowls turned out – they fit right in on our Create mantel display! I am so glad I accidentally found out that I throw pottery left-handed – we may want to try this again sometime! Thank you so much to Bareclay Studio for giving us the second chance to make something we love.

May Family Game Night Recap

As I mentioned in my other May posts, this was a busy, hectic, crazy month. When we were home for a rare evening, someone was always grumpy or sleepy or had to study or needed a mental break. So, we only had one Family Game Night (FGN) in May. Which is still better than nothing, but I am disappointed that we couldn’t make it work. Most likely we will do better in June – we will have less rehearsals after Charlotte’s Web closes on the 16th, so I am hopeful.

On May 25th, we decided it was now or never. The plan was that Charlotte would study for her test and then join Keith, Micah and me, but it went a little differently. When Charlotte joined us, Micah must have felt his obligation was fulfilled and he ditched us to play online with friends. Keith and I still had a wonderful night playing with both our children, just not at the same time.

The first game we played was 5 Minute Dungeon. Keith and Micah had played this game with friends, and they enjoyed it so much that Micah gifted it to Keith for his birthday. It was not a 5 minute game as the name implies, but it was fun once I got the hang of it. We beat the first dungeon, but we ended up losing the game in the second dungeon. I chose to be a ninja character (because NINJA!!), but had I understood how the game play worked and how the characters’ powers would be used, I may have chosen a character with a more useful power. Knowing the Micah is a fan of this game, I am sure it will be in rotation for future FGNs in our household. I do have to say that just shoving all the cards to the side gave me anxiety about having to sort them out later…

The second game we tried was a Christmas gift to our family from my brother’s family. Phone Phever is a game that uses your smart phone for a lot of the the questions; sometimes it is optional, other times not. You are racing the other players to get the latest, greatest, new smart phone by answering questions. We finished the game, but I doubt that the three of us will play it again. It seems like a game that young teens will like, so we will have Charlotte and her friends try it out.

The next game Keith, Micah and I played was The Oregon Trail Hunt for Food card game. This game was pretty simple once we got through the rules. Unfortunately, we all ended up dying before we could deliver enough food back to our camp. I believe one of us died from dehydration, one died from getting lost, and one died from a snake bite. No dysentery, so I guess we had that going for us. 😉 I feel like we will most likely try this game out again.

After Oregon Trail, Charlotte joined us and we lost Micah. Keith and Charlotte found a Friends Trivia Game at a thrift store last month, so we decided to give it a go. It ended up being pretty fun, and I was pleasantly surprised how many of the questions we knew – thanks Netflix! Keith managed to beat us out at the last minute, but it was definitely neck and neck for the win. I have a feeling that Charlotte will want to play this again, but it will have to once again be without Micah because he is not a big Friends fan.

Have you ever played any of these games? Do you have any games you think we should try? Let us know in the comments!

May Adventure Date

Keith’s birthday was this month, but since I had already gotten him a camera in March, I got him a gift for us. I got us both tickets for three adventures from ScavengerHunt.com. We were able to do our first hunt on Sunday after the guys got home from rehearsal. We chose the Discovering Columbus tour because it was in a familiar place and it was marked as skill level mild. We figured starting out easy would be the best idea…

We installed the required app on Keith’s phone (Let’s Roam) and headed down to Bicentennial Park. We ended up getting a free meter on the other side of the river – thanks Sunday! We walked to the marked beginning of the hunt and then realized that I would also need the app on my phone. After some frustration about the cell signal, the app was installed and we were ready to go. We chose Adventure Create Relate as our team name and then took our team photo.

I will not ruin the adventure for anyone planning to try it, but I will give an overview. We ended up doing about 1.5 miles of walking while doing the activities. We learned new things about familiar landmarks. We did not think there was enough time allowed for some of the tasks, but overall we had a great time! It was fun as a date activity, but it would also be fun in a larger group. It would be a great way to learn more about the history of Columbus. Here are a few photos we took as part of the activities – sorry some are blurry, my phone was fogged up from the humidity.

We also took a few shots of fun sculptures and scenes around downtown while we were walking from place to place.

After all the walking, we were definitely ready to eat! We have been wanting to try Fukuryu Ramen on Lane Avenue for a while after seeing some posts from friends on Facebook. So, we headed to Upper Arlington to give it a whirl. We were not disappointed! I had the Shio Ramen and Keith had the Junk Ramen. We both really enjoyed our ramen and also their iced green tea. It was so refreshing – the perfect compliment to the food. We will definitely be back!

Overall, this date was just what we needed. This is a really stressful month and we needed to reconnect and remember we are a pretty awesome team. Can’t wait to see what June holds!
