We started January 2nd with a song called “Happy, Happy New Year”. It was sung by a french student group called the Fantastikids. I love the hopeful and magical feel to the video. It leaves you with that feeling that anything is possible.
Next we made two lists on the board. One was titled “Old Business” and the other “New Business”. Under “Old Business” were things that we started in the last two months, but have not yet finished. We need to keep this list visible so we can work towards our goal of completing everything on it.
