New Home: Our Goals, Wants and Desires

As a family we decided to personalize our home by writing our goals, wants and desires for our lives while living in Eagle Mountain on the inside frame of our house. We started out with writing our family motto, "Fighting 4 Us" over the front door. Perfect placement for our motto because we know that once we walk out the front door into the world we will have to continue to fight for our family to be strong against the world that oftentimes devalues families. After writing our motto, each of us went into our rooms and wrote our individual goals, wants and desires.  Adilynn was fun to watch her draw her dreams on the walls instead of actually writing them out. I think Spencer had the most fun because he was writing titles of the rooms in each area, some were funny, others.. well let's just say Spencer has a special place in our family. Everyone needs someone like him in their family.
