Weekly Happenings: This past week was pretty average. Since Monday was a holiday, we scooted out to the zoo for a fun morning. The weather has been rather if-y as of late, so we decided to stay local. We also had our annual HOA meeting where Paul was elected to the HOA board, filling the offices of Vice President and Secretary.
The Weekly Weather: It’s been another week full of both rain and sunshine (sometimes at the same time, haha).
What Paul’s Been Up To: He is continuing the work on the little free library. The rain has slowed him down a bit (he wants to do many, many layers of paint so that it can withstand the elements), but he’s kept at it. He also used some scrap wood to make a rubber band rifle for Joseph. Joseph was pretty excited about that. 🙂
What Sarah’s Been Up To: Not too much on my front. I’m mainly just trying to keep one step ahead of a crazy-active almost-two-year-old. 🙂 Luckily, the just-turned-seven-year-old is a huge help in that aspect. 😉
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He has been loving school, loves to play with Abigail, and loves spending time creating new creations with his LEGOS.
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s figured out that her reach is longer and so are her legs. Why is this specific combination important to mention? Well, it means that it’s easier for her to climb up on things…like the coffee table, chairs, benches, etc. I’ve spent a lot of time lifting her back down (sometimes multiple times in a row, haha).
Weekly Happenings: This past week was rather enjoyable. On Tuesday, we attended the National Night Out celebration at our neighborhood park. Joseph loved the bounce houses, Abigail liked looking at the petting zoo animals, and we all liked getting in touch with our neighbors and friends. Then on Wednesday, I got to go to a fun Relief Society activity. Aside from that, we filled the rest of our time with regular weekly things and some family time as well.
The Weekly Weather: It’s been another week full of sunshine, rain, and rainbows.
What Paul’s Been Up To: Mainly just work and his church calling. He has been spending some time working on a little free library that will be installed at the neighborhood park and will be stocked with books for people to borrow.
What Sarah’s Been Up To: Not too much out of the ordinary on my front. I did get to be the “brave” person to kill a scorpion at the Relief Society Activity (it showed up as we were cleaning things up at the end of the night). I just stepped straight down on it, since I was wearing my boots. It was probably a quick and relatively painless death for it.
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He enjoyed attending his first meeting with GT (gifted and talented). He said his favorite part was getting to pretend to be astronauts in training. Since this year celebrates the 60th anniversary for NASA, they are focusing on space, which I think is so cool.
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s been fighting off a cold, but luckily she seems to be on the flip-side of it now.
Weekly Happenings: It’s crazy to think that September is almost over! I am excited, though, because that means that we’re getting into the holiday season, which is my favorite time of year. This past week was a pretty average one. We didn’t really go anywhere or do anything out of the norm. I’m okay with that…before I know it, we’ll be in the full-fledged craziness that is Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas.
The Weekly Weather: It’s been a mix of rainy and sunny, with a dash of butterflies. The snout nose butterfly (it looks like a smaller version of a Monarch) migrates right through San Antonio, so there were several days where there were butterflies everywhere!
What Paul’s Been Up To: Mainly just work and home life. He did help out with the youth service project for church (he’s the secretary in the Young Men’s presidency).
What Sarah’s Been Up To: I have mainly just been doing my thing, too. I did watch a friend’s girls one evening, which was a lot of fun for Abigail.
What Joseph’s Been Up To: We just found out that he’s going to be put into the Gifted and Talented program at school (they meet once a week). We’re all excited for him to be able to get a little more enrichment at school.
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s been full of sass, but also full of fun, giggles, new words, and cuddles.
