Weekly Happenings: I think all the things we did this past week made up for all that we didn’t do the past week, haha. On Monday, Joseph didn’t have school and Paul didn’t have work, so we headed off to the pumpkin patch. Thanks to Abigail waking up early (regardless of the day), we were able to get an early start and had a nice visit while it was still cool. A fun time was had by all. 🙂 On Thursday, we attended an awards ceremony for Joseph. His school has different values that they teach the kids about and will choose kids who they feel have used those values. Joseph was picked for “Speak With a Purpose”. His teacher said that he always thought before he spoke and tried to always speak kindly and patiently with his friends. That’s our awesome boy! Finally, yesterday (after another almost-regular-time wake-up call from Abigail) we decided to head out to the zoo for the morning. In the afternoon, Joseph and I worked on his pumpkin for the Storybook Pumpkin Patch at his school (each kid who wants to decorates a pumpkin like one of their favorite storybook characters) while Paul spent some much-needed time on homework.
The Weekly Weather: We’ve had quite the mix. The week started out warm, but then a cold front dropped in, making it cool for a couple of days. It warmed back up after that, but we have another cold front working its way in as we speak. It’s pretty typical for this time of year, though.
What Paul’s Been Up To: Work and school as always…he did make sure to make some time for some fun family time, though. I’m so grateful that he strives to do that.
What Sarah’s Been Up To: Mainly just my typical stuff. It’s amazing how the days just seem to fly by!
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He’s been enjoying school and GT. He also enjoys helping with Abigail and playing with her.
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s pushed out yet another tooth…so the count is now 6. She will be 10 months old next week! She isn’t crawling yet (still rolling like a fiend) but enjoys seeing what mischief she can get into whilst in her walker. 🙂
Weekly Happenings: This past week was spent mainly getting back into the swing of things after I got home from my trip to California. We didn’t do too much out of the ordinary. It was nice being back with the family and getting back into the routine of school, work, and so on.
The Weekly Weather: It was rainy one day, but the rest of the week was clear and warm.
What Paul’s Been Up To: Mainly just work, school, and maintaining the house and yards.
What Sarah’s Been Up To: Mainly just trying to get back into my routine.
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He’s enjoying school. He goes to the GT (gifted and talented) teacher a few times a week to do additional enrichment activities, which is good. He also enjoys hanging out at home and doing things to make Abigail laugh. He’s an awesome helper whenever I need him to be.
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s popped out another tooth (so that makes five so far) and is an altogether pleasant baby. We’re so blessed!
Weekly Happenings: This past week was a bittersweet one. At the beginning, it was a normal-ish week of school, work, and the like. On Thursday, I flew to California to be with family and attend my dad’s funeral. I got back yesterday. Paul did an awesome job holding down the fort.
The Weekly Weather: We got a lot of rain last week! Joseph kept saying he wished it would stop so he could play outside. Sorry, kiddo. Fall in South Texas usually means rain.
What Paul’s Been Up To: As I mentioned before, he held down the fort while I was gone. He did an awesome job! He also managed to score a Super Nintendo Classic (a mini Super Nintendo with a ton of the classic games loaded onto it) as a surprise for Joseph.
What Sarah’s Been Up To: I soaked up as much family time as possible. My dad’s funeral was on Friday. It was a really wonderful service. It was so good to see everyone I did (family, old friends) even though it was under sadder circumstances.
What Joseph’s Been Up To: Mainly just doing his thing. He really enjoyed getting to do Google Hangouts with me while I was gone. He also enjoyed playing the SNES Classic. It served as a good distraction, I think.
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She also enjoyed the Google Hangouts (even though she looked confused as to exactly where I was since my face was in Paul’s phone) and has been jetting around the house in her walker. I also moved her into 12-18 month (or just 18 month if it’s a single-size option) clothing.
