Another Week Gone

Weekly Happenings: Well, we’ve made it another week. Not much out of the ordinary was accomplished, so there isn’t much to write about. I’m looking forward to the passing of more time so that we can hopefully get on the other side of all of this and start to be able to return to normal life.

The Weekly Weather: It’s been warm and dry. I’m trying to think if it rained at all. I think it might have sprinkled a bit one day, but that was about it.

What Paul’s Been Up To: This past week was a work-from-home week, so he spent his time divided up between working and doing yard work. This seems to be the new normal for these weeks.

What Sarah’s Been Up To: It was another week of helping Joseph with school and helping both Joseph and Abigail enjoy this extra time at home. I’m looking forward to June when I can toss the schoolwork out the window, though.

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He’s divided his time between school and fun. It’s fun to have conversations with him as he’s getting older (even though the majority of them are about video game facts right now, haha).

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s been fighting bedtime hardcore right now. At first we thought it might be that she wanted a bigger bed, so we traded out her toddler bed for a bigger mattress (when Paul has a spare moment, he’ll build a simple frame for the mattress just like he did for Joseph). That worked for one and a half nights. Then I thought that maybe getting her cool new bedding might work. She LOVES her new bedding…but not enough to go to sleep on her own in it. This is the kid that has wanted to put herself to bed since she was six months old…and now she’s wanting me to hold her or be next to her on the couch until she falls asleep and then I carry her into her bed. This worked for a few nights and then last night she randomly woke up at 1:00 and was awake until almost 5:00…I’m not going to miss whatever stage this is.

This Week in Pictures:

Abigail came up and wanted to show me the “bracelet” she made. 🙂
Right after we moved into our house (almost eight years ago, for those that may have lost count), we were walking down our street and noticed this prickly pear cactus growing in a huge oak tree. It’s still there, y’all…probably a good 20 feet from the ground.
She told me she was sitting in her beach chair and drinking her beach juice (her “cup” is the lower half of the barrel from her barrel of monkeys and her “straw” is a cylinder block). I can’t make this stuff up, people.
Just a boy in his natural habitat. 😉
Her balance and ability to multi-task (snacking, balancing, and watching a show) amaze me.
She asked to wear her black boots because they were “so sty-wish”. I agree…they are pretty stylish.
She asked me if she could watch the “Jack what’s this movie”. Considering the fact that she’d only seen about ten minutes of it over a week prior, I was surprised that even though she couldn’t remember the title, she could remember lyrics.
This is the bedding she loves, but not enough to go to sleep in. 😉
Just a boy playing video games and a girl in her Vampirina costume watching her tablet…nothing to see here.
Paul gave her some Greek yogurt with a bit of chocolate syrup mixed in. She really enjoyed it.

Bonus Video: Here’s a video that Google Photos compiled of a bunch of videos we took of Joseph through the years!

Today was my mom’s birthday and the kids sang her Happy Birthday!
