I hearby resolve to do the following in the year 2008:
Eat plenty of cake and ice cream at every single birthday party I am invited to join.
Drive at least 100 miles in my 1966 Ford Mustang.
Play soccer with Emma, Levi and Isaac.
Give my wife Tara 50 hours of scrapbooking time.
Help Eli learn to swim.
Finish at least 12 of the thirty books I started to read in 2007.
Learn to tell jokes (I'm a terrible joke-teller, I can never remember the punchline correctly...even elephant jokes are a struggle!)
Bench-press 250 pounds.
Grow enough huckleberries to make 12 pies (one for each month following harvest-season).
Not yell at my kids so much, or my wife for that matter.
Graduate from Trinity Evangelical Divinity School with a Masters in Divinity.
Have another fun vacation this summer somewhere where there is plenty of sunshine, lots of water for swimming, a Starbucks close by, and restaurants with tasty appetizers and a zillion flavors of ice cream.
Celebrate thirteen good years of marriage to my beautiful wife Tara.
Teach Levi and Isaac how to catch a baseball.
Ride my bike with Emma alot.
Go for plenty of summer evening strolls with the whole family.
