Family Fun

Weekly Happenings: This past week was pretty great. We did our normal stuff (story time, park play dates, etc.) but also had a couple of days where we got to do some fun stuff. One day was Wednesday. Because it was Veterans’ Day, Paul had the day off, so we went to the zoo as a family. We also ate at a couple of restaurants because they were having deals for veterans. The other super fun day was yesterday. We went out to eat lunch (one of the places we ate at on Veterans’ Day was not giving free food or a discount, but what they were doing was giving out vouchers for free future meals, so we cashed our vouchers in yesterday) and then went to go see the new Peanuts movie. It was really fun! We kept it a secret from Joseph and he was super excited to see it. He had been carrying his Snoopy around all day (simply because he was the animal of choice), so it was pretty great that he happened to have him for the movie.

The Weekly Weather: We’ve been having kind of flip-floppy weather. Most days have been cooler (and even rainy), but there have been a few here and there that were warm. ‘Tis how it is in South Texas in the fall…

What Paul’s Been Up To: Mainly just school and work…the fun life of an adult!

What Sarah’s Been Up To: Mainly just church stuff, choir, and teaching piano (oh, and keeping Joseph alive and happy)…I did get to attend a craft night for Relief Society. It was fun to hang out with friends and make cute stuff. 🙂 Oh, and I attended one of the two book club meetings that I have this month. I was hesitant about joining another book club, but I have found that since I now have more books to read, I waste less time on frivolous stuff.

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He’s been doing normal preschooler stuff. He really enjoys story time and playing with friends. One funny thing that happened was when I went to re-cover him after he fell asleep (he tends to kick his covers off while sleeping) and realized that he had put his slippers back on before falling asleep. I guess he’s sticking with the theory he came up with: slippers are “night shoes” and therefore should be worn while sleeping.
