Back to Reality

Weekly Happenings: This past week held a big dose of reality as we came off of our vacation high. We miss family a lot, but it is good to be home. Joseph got settled back into his school routine, Paul back in his work routine, and me and Abigail back into our “everything else” routine. It took a few days for the kids to get back onto Central time, but they seem to be adjusted now.

The Weekly Weather: It’s been cool and misty with a few rainy days mixed in, but mostly sunny days.

What Paul’s Been Up To: Mainly just getting settled back into work and helping out in Young Men’s. He also took down our outside Christmas decorations and today he’s working at getting the neighborhood decorations taken down.

What Sarah’s Been Up To: Trying to get the kids settled back in was time consuming, but nothing I couldn’t truly handle. I also packed away all the inside Christmas decorations.

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He was sad to leave Grandma and his cousins, but enjoyed seeing his school friends again.

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She had her two-year well-check this past week. She weighs 26 pounds and is just shy of 35 inches tall. She was a champ during her shots. She was actually rather calm while getting them, just a little surprised. She actually didn’t cry until after they were done but she stopped as soon as I picked her up to soothe her.

This Week in Pictures:

I love being able to find neat quotes for my board just by doing a quick search on Google. This particular one is by a woman named Ruby Archer and I think it fits the idea of January perfectly (even if there isn’t a lick of snow on the ground in good ol’ San Antonio).
My piano looked so bare after putting away all the Christmas decorations. I wasn’t quite ready for pink, red, and hearts, so I decided to put my patriotic stuff back up. I figure they’ll be good for whenever there isn’t another holiday to decorate for. 😊
Each of my siblings have been blessed with amazing talents in all shapes and forms. I’m always beyond grateful when they share the fruits of those talents with me. Whether it be beautiful music or art, an amazing sense of humor, showering my children with love and patience as they play with them, giving me advice when asked, or just continually being good examples to me, I’m grateful to have each and every one of them in my life. For Christmas, one of my brothers gifted this beautiful bowl he made. I was excited to get it home and put it next to another beautiful piece of his work.
Abigail and a couple of buddies at a play date yesterday. I couldn’t help but snap a quick picture of all their cute little heads bent over this fun fishing game that my friend has.
