Weekly Happenings: This past week contained a fun night for Joseph. He had his grade-level performance which was followed by a “glow dance” where the kids got to dance in the gym. They had the regular lights off and had a bunch of glow-in-the-dark and black light stuff. We didn’t stay long since it was REALLY loud, but the kids had fun while we were there. We kicked off our weekend with a trip to the zoo this morning. That was super fun, too.
The Weekly Weather: We really had the myriad this past week. We had rather cold days, mild days, and then yesterday, it was in the 80s. I kid you not. Crazy Texas!
What Paul’s Been Up To: He got the confirmation that he got the new position that he applied for at work, so he starts on Monday. If I remember correctly, it’s a system’s admin position in the IT department. He also was able to take a bit of time yesterday to drive out with one of the other Young Men leaders to check out potential camp sites for the Young Men to use in the future.
What Sarah’s Been Up To: I’ve been up to my usual stuff. Not too much worth mentioning this time around.
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He was happy to get to do his grade level performance and the glow dance. He also had another eventful…event thanks to the assistance of his sister’s…head. You’ll see what I mean in a minute.
What Abigail’s Been Up To: Okay, so anyone who read last week’s post might remember me talking about how Abigail and Joseph collided in the pay tunnel and she knocked his loose tooth out. Well. On Monday night (so three days after the first incident), she was giving him a hug goodnight, lost her footing, and essentially head-butted him…in the mouth. And knocked out his OTHER loose tooth. We could hardly believe it! The Darr household is a bit crazy at times, apparently.
Weekly Happenings: This past week was rather average for us. We pretty much just stuck to our routine. It’s nice to have weeks like this, though. It makes the crazy weeks more fun (and bearable, haha).
The Weekly Weather: As is typical in Texas, the weather was all over the place. We had cool days, warm days (the kids were even in shorts one day), and downright cold days (I’m talking a twenty degree drop overnight).
What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been busy at work and busy helping to plan activities for the young men (male youth ages 12-17 at church).
What Sarah’s Been Up To: Aside from my typical routine, I did get to go out with some girlfriends for dinner. It was nice to get out of the house for some girl time. 🙂
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He celebrated his 100th day of school this year (it’s hard to believe we’re at this point of the year). He also celebrated losing yet another tooth. He and Abigail were crawling through the play tunnel at the same time and she bumped into him, knocking out his already really wiggly tooth. He left a really awesome note for the tooth fairy (pictured below) who was luckily able to fulfill his request. 🙂
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She got new shoes since her old ones all of a sudden didn’t fit anymore. She also enjoyed getting to play with a friend at our house yesterday. It’s fun to see her interact with other kids a bit more. She still plays independently a lot which is normal for her age), but she loves it when friends come over.
Weekly Happenings: This past week was pretty regular as far as events go. We pretty much just did what we always do. We did welcome in February, though. It’s hard to believe that January is already come and gone. Time sure flies!
The Weekly Weather: We’ve had typical January/February weather. Cool days and a few rather cold nights (I pulled my outdoor succulents into the garage so they wouldn’t be negatively impacted…which was good because we did get frost covering everything one night). Smatterings of rain, but no big storms. The past few days have been rather pleasant. We haven’t even needed jackets in the afternoons.
What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been busy at work and at home. He also went in for a day of jury duty which was LOADS of fun. 😉
What Sarah’s Been Up To: I’ve been pretty much just pluggin’ along with my normal stuff, too.
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He’s scootin’ along in school (loves his GT class that he goes to once a week) and enjoyed getting to build a “secret base” at the park with friends (no pictures because a) I left my phone in the car and realized it too late and b) it’s secret!). I love that our park has a ton of big oak trees around which the kids can run around and play.
What Abigail’s Been Up To: We’ve moved her from her high chair to a booster seat at the table (this is the milestone referred to in the title). We’ve also taught her (for the most part, haha) that plates are vessels for food and stay on the table…they don’t get upended, sending food skyward.
