Weekly Happenings: This was another low-key week. We pretty much all just did what we normally do. It’s crazy to think that we’re almost into August. The summer is just flying by!
The Weekly Weather: Warm, sunny, and humid. We had some rumblings of a storm, but it didn’t develop into anything.
What Paul’s Been Up To: He took down our pool (we were just too worried about Abigail since she is so unpredictable right now) and put in a really nice plant area with wood walk-ways and some large potted plants. I love it!
What Sarah’s Been Up To: I had a really good time today going to the art museum with friends. It was nice to get to hang out with friends and take in some beautiful art pieces. I also had a bit of a snaffu. I realized I messed up when I put in the prescription for my new glasses, so when my glasses came in, the prescription was obviously wrong. When I realized my mistake, I called the company and they let me return them for store credit (they emailed me a shipping label), change what I needed, and reorder my glasses and sunglasses. All I was out was shipping for the new pairs. Not too bad for a mistake like that! My correct glasses and sunglasses got here today and they are so good I don’t know why I didn’t realize the other ones were not right sooner.
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He has continued to soak up summer. It’s hard to believe that we have roughly three weeks left before school. I’m not ready and ready for it at the same time. I think he feels the same way.
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She continues to keep us on our toes and makes us laugh a lot. Just one example: anytime anything (including inanimate objects) falls to the floor, she needs to pick it up and ask if it’s okay. For example, at lunch one day, she dropped a piece of chicken on the floor. Immediately she was scrambling down to get it, saying, “Oh no! Oh no! The chicken!” She then picked up the chicken and said, “You all right, chicken?” After she assessed the situation and decided that the chicken was, indeed, all right, she popped it into her mouth (she seriously lives by the 5-second-rule at home) and resumed her meal. 😏
