Weekly Happenings: We had a pretty fun week. As Halloween gets closer, I’m realizing how much fun it’s going to be with Joseph this year. Last year he was a bit young to fully understand what was going on. This year, he’s looking forward to dressing up and even trick-or-treating. We attended a Halloween-themed play date at a friend’s house (Joseph had a blast), went to the park, and then wrapped up the week with a trip out to the pumpkin patch. The patch was out in Bandera, which is about an hour’s drive away. It was totally worth the drive, though. We had so much fun! The weather was cool(ish) and there were a lot of things to look at and do (a maze, a barrel-train ride, a hay-ride, petting-zoo ponies, etc.).
The Weekly Weather: The weather has been nice and cool in the morning and evenings but a little warm during the afternoon. If it weren’t for the humidity (though it’s not as high as it was in the summer), I would think I was back in California. 😉
What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s chugging away at his college courses, keeping busy at work, and helping out where he can (for example, he taught the lesson in Elders’ Quorum today).
What Sarah’s Been Up To: I’ve been keeping busy getting back to reality with my students, post-recital, as well as working with my ward choir to get ready for Christmas. The songs we are singing are so fun!
What Joseph’s Been Up To: Being cute as always. The other day, I caught him playing “rock, paper, scissors” with himself. I’m still trying to figure out where he learned about the game because Paul and I didn’t teach it to him…he is also still as social as ever. When we went to the park this week (I walked there with him in the stroller instead of driving), as I was starting to get him out of the stroller, he spotted some kids about his size. He started trying really hard to get out (even though I was working on getting him out), meanwhile yelling, “HI! I’M JOSEPH!!!!” over and over again.
This Week in Pictures: Warning! Because of our trip to the pumpkin patch, there are a LOT of pictures this week!
