“Many are the plans in a man’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that will prevail.”
– Proverbs 19:21
Today we talked about setting and accomplishing goals. I said that when you have a goal, it helps you accomplish more and gives you purpose. To practice setting goals, I brought out a ring toss. You could do anything for this activity really – beating your own time running, shooting baskets, hitting or kicking a ball a certain distance or to a certain spot. The options are endless. The kids haven’t played the ring toss a lot, and today we had an opportunity to set goals, practice and learn new skills. The girls were throwing like Kenzie (above) until my husband, mostly, taught them to throw like a frisbee. Kenzie set the goal of getting one of the rings hooked. Abby wanted to eventually hook all three. My husband and I also set goals. My husband wanted to hook on his first round. I wanted to try and hook all three in one toss. It was a fun time together. It gave them a deeper sense of accomplishing goals and focusing on one task until it is accomplished.
