This last week was a pretty typical one for the end of March. I can hardly believe we’re at the end of March. It seems like I was just tucking the Christmas decorations away last week! The weather was pretty typical for this time of year: chilly mornings and warm afternoons. The kids had a minimum day on Wednesday, so we met up with friends at a burger place that has a huge fenced in field (that’s laid with astroturf). It felt good chatting with my friends while the kids played…except we were sitting in the sun and I hadn’t thought to bring my hat. What a rookie mistake! My face got pretty pink and so did one part of one of my legs (I guess the rest of that leg as well as the other one were blocked somehow? I’m still scratching my head about that one). I enjoyed getting to be outside for my daily walks (for which I was sure to grab my hat), and the kids have enjoyed it being warmer when they’ve gone outside for recess at school. Paul had his annual work picnic this week as well. Unfortunately, it was on a weekday, so it didn’t line up to have me take the kids out for it. This morning I got to go to the stake Relief Society activity celebrating the birthday of the Relief Society. It was so fun getting to see my friends from other wards as well as my friends from my ward who I don’t get to see often because we’re busy with our callings during Sundays. While I was gone doing that, Paul took the kids to Lowe’s and came home with new flowers for the front and a cute birdbath for the back. I have a feeling that Abigail influenced the choice of which birdbath to get…you’ll see why I think that in a moment.
