Weekly Happenings: This past week seemed to just fly by. We were busy with work, school, running errands, teaching piano, and the like. I’m trying to wrap my head around how September is almost over. The holidays will be here before we know it!
The Weekly Weather: It’s been all over the map, really. We’ve had a couple of good storms which we desperately needed. One was overnight with quite a bit of thunder. Joseph ended up spending the night on the extra mattress we have on the floor in our room. Abigail thankfully slept through it all. We’ve had some slightly cooler temps and then some slightly hotter temps. It’s been quite the adventure checking my weather app several times a day to see it change, haha.
What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been busy at work. He’s also been helping me with some organizational bits around the house. When we first moved in, we had a set of shelves to hold a lot of his military awards, coins, and the like. They’ve been fine up there until Senorita Grabs-a-Lot came along (she won’t leave the “shinies”alone). So Paul ordered some shadow boxes for his medals and coins and got some frames for some of his awards. I noticed it feels a lot more open with the shelves gone, which is another plus. Oh, and his birthday was this past week! We’re celebrating tonight with friends and cheesecake (of course). 🙂
What Sarah’s Been Up To: Mostly just my ordinary stuff. I did drive out to New Braunfels (about an hour away) to visit with a friend who recently moved out there. It was so good to see her and hang out.
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He’s back into the groove of school. He’s doing GT again this year and is excited to get to do some extra project-based learning.
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s…keeping me on my toes and giving me the opportunity to try many different parenting styles/techniques to see which one works best. 😉 I think we’ll leave it at that, haha. One cute thing that happened was that at dinner one night she told me her tomato slice (which was cut in half) looked like a rainbow. 🙂 She’s constantly using her imagination (one day she held a toy up to her eye and told me that she had a telescope). Life is definitely an adventure with her.
