With Santa’s work over, some of the kids at Prime Time Children’s Center in Owings were already looking to the coming year on Wednesday.
They were also reflecting on the year that has passed.
“I’ve been coloring and I’ve been doing good school work at my house,” said 5-year-old Timothy Cain of his 2012 accomplishments, which he added also included playing with his cousin, Jordan.
Timothy, a Chesapeake Beach resident, was strategic when it came to his New Year’s resolutions.
“No. 1, I want to play with my Batman car. No. 2, I want a jet,” he said.
Four-year-old Kaitlyn Henretty of Chesapeake Beach said her favorite part of the past year was seeing a Shrek ice show, being in “the jungle” at Prime Time and visiting Santa Claus.
She said she was looking forward to being in “the 5 class” next year.
“We’re gonna sing a Christmas song,” Kaitlyn said.
Her friend Ryan Horn, 4, of Chesapeake Beach already had her mind on Thanksgiving 2013 and visiting her cousins, one of whom she said lived in South Carolina.
“They’re really nice,” Ryan said.
Three-year-old Julianna Bishop of Chesapeake Beach said for her, “going golfing and eating with my family,” were the highlights of 2012.
She said her New Year’s resolution was to make cookies.
“I want to do it all by myself,” Julianna said.
For 8-year-old Kyle Mattis of Owings, his New Year’s resolution was out of his hands.
“My New Year’s resolution is the [Washington] Redskins to go to the Super Bowl,” said Kyle, adding that he thought the chances of that happening were pretty good.
“We whipped the [Dallas] Cowboys on Thanksgiving,” he said.
Kyle said his accomplishments for 2012 included reading and learning multiplication and division.
For 4-year-old Abigail Barresse of Chesapeake Beach her goal for 2013 was to play tag with her friends.
She said her favorite part of 2012 was riding a pony at a friend’s birthday party.
“I got to feed her,” Abigail said.
Antonio Garisto, 8, of Chesapeake Beach said his goal for 2013 was to play “Just Dance 4.”
“I want to play it on my Wii U that I got for Christmas,” he said, adding that his highlight of 2012 was “playing games with friends.”
Eight-year-old Eric Scheleur said his resolution could be accomplished at Beach Elementary, where he is in third grade.
“To learn more science in school it’s my favorite subject,” Eric said.
The Chesapeake Beach resident said his favorite part of 2012 was reading “Magic Tree House” books.
Six-year-old Walker Young of Chesapeake Beach was another reader.
“I want to read more ‘cause I like reading,” Walker said, adding that his favorite 2012 memory was receiving a LEGO Fire Plane for Christmas.
Playing tag and hide-and-seek with her friends were cherished memories of 2012 for 6-year-old Carleigh Coghlan of North Beach, who said her New Year’s resolutions were to see her family and Justin Bieber.
