Well, it finally stopped raining (for the time being…we do have more rain in the forecast for next week). Once things dried out a bit (even on dry days, it takes a bit for the ground to be less muddy), we ventured out to do some fun things: playing in the back yard, going to the park, and going for a zoo trip today. We were able to let Abigail loose at the zoo and she did great listening and not running off. It was awesome! One funny story about her: At the end of her baths, I always tell her that she can play until all the water is gone…so she always gets a cup full of water and waits until all the rest of the water in the tub is gone before she gives me a mischievous look while holding her cup full of water. She always looks a little bummed when I tell her she has to empty her cup. Smart yet sassy girl! In other news, Joseph is really enjoying being back in school. He says it’s much better than trying to learn remotely from home. He’s also been able to choose a prize out of the prize box for good behavior/staying on task, which has been a highlight of his week (his teacher recently started this with the in-person learners and loaded the prize box with different toys that are good for hands that need to be kept busy…which are toys that he loves, so it’s a win-win).
