5 Years From Now....

Today I'm linking up with Becky from From Mrs. To Mama for her Blogging with a Purpose.  This week she is wants everyone to write about where they see themselves in 5 years. That's fun and scary!

In 5 years Nick and I will be 36 years old! Oh my word. Officially closer to 40 than 30! 

In 5 years Reagan will 9 years old! A 3rd grader- aww! Tear.

In 5 years the twins will be 5 years old - kindergartners! Even more tears!

I know I shouldn't feel sad about this- but I don't think I like the thought of my babies growing up! :(

In 5 years I hope to be teacher or a reading specialist. Definitely something still working with kids in education. I hope Nick is successful and happy in his career and feels validated by what he does.

In 5 years I hope to be a better wife.  I know my life seems to be completely about my kids right now.  I know that I need to find a better balance and give our marriage the time and effort it deserves.  I hope that we continue to fall more in love each year.

In 5 years I hope to have family vacations.  I hope we have the money and patience to take the kids to great destinations and experiences new things.

In 5 years I hope to have all of our debt paid off and have more money in savings.

In 5 years I still see ourselves living in the same city, close to our family. I don't like moving, so I hope that we don't outgrow our house.  We bought this house figuring we'd have 2 kids, not 3!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

Well, as the children grow you will too and you will enjoy them getting older and you getting more of your freedom back. Sounds like a great 5 year plan to me.

You and your sweet family have a wonderful celebration on he 4th!
