Kid Interviews & Personal Progress

Oh, man, parenting can be so rough.  But sometimes, it can be so rewarding, like when our children are working hard and developing themselves as people.

After church this week, I felt it was time to sit down and revisit our yearly goals with each child during personal interviews.

And it was actually a really fun and positive experience where I could praise them for their accomplishments and hard work so far, and also see where I need to help them improve on their efforts to reach other goals. 

Our family records personal and family goals each new year in a family goals journal.  That way, we can track our progress in completing those goals, and it helps a lot to review those goals a few times a year. 

Scarlett has been a lot of fun to work with this year as we have navigated the Personal Progress program which she entered in January as an 11-year old.  We have done a lot of cool projects together such as a kid art show, a neighborhood clean-up, a secret school project, a fashion blog, she has written an original song, and more.  Each project has been so personalized and so joyful and fun.  Such good memories.

It's really cool to watch a daughter of God blossom in this way.  She loves the Lord, and she tries her best to make good choices and to become the person God wants her to be.

I'm so grateful to have this experience with her, and I'm interested in seeing what the new youth experience will be like when things are announced and rolled out this fall.

Until then, we're working diligently to finish all of the requirements.  She's so close!  I will have to do a future post on all of her projects!
