Weekly Happenings: This past week held some pretty fun events. On Tuesday, we had our National Night Out neighborhood party at the park. It was pretty crowded, so we ended up not staying very long. We did stay long enough for Joseph to get to sit in a fire truck and get a balloon animal, though. He was pretty sad when we left, but Paul and I don’t really like big crowds in small places, so we made our exit a bit early. Wednesday we went to the park (because they weather was amazing), Friday we had some of Joseph’s friends over to watch The Great Pumpkin and have lunch, and yesterday we went out to the pumpkin patch at Love Creek Orchards (in Medina, which is out in the Hill Country). Last night also provided an opportunity for me to see a friend from high school that I hadn’t seen for probably 5 years or more. She was in town for a photography conference and we were able to meet up at the Riverwalk for dinner.
The Weekly Weather: The start of last week was cooler (almost fall-like), but it’s starting to heat up again. *sigh* I’m really looking forward to when it starts to cool down again! We did get a couple of storms, though, so that was nice.
What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been kept really busy with work, school, and his callings (as well as pulling awesome Daddy-duty when Joseph just NEEDS Daddy and when I’ve gone out with friends).
What Sarah’s Been Up To: I’ve been keeping busy as well. The beginning of each month is always hectic because I have to work on visiting teaching stuff. I’m also working with the ward choir getting music ready for the next few months. Finally, I’ve started attending another book club. I love to read, but found that I’ve been not reading very much because I’ve been allowing myself to be sucked too much into the vortex that is social media. I’m hoping that if I am attending two book clubs, I will devote more time to the reading of good books. 🙂
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He loved going to story time this past week (especially since they are starting to focus on Halloween). He was also really excited about the fact that his Halloween costume arrived (he’s going to be Link). We had him try it on to make sure everything fit and it was really hard getting him to take it off, hahaha.
