Weekly Happenings: This past week held some fun times for a few people in our household. We had General Conference (a worldwide conference for our church) last weekend, which was wonderful as ever. It’s still weird to see it being broadcast from a smaller room with just a few people in attendance, but I’m grateful that it could still happen. I’m so grateful for technology! Monday, Joseph was able to go back to school in-person. He said that it was a bit weird wearing a mask all day, but he’s really glad he gets to see his teacher in person and see all his friends (and recess with friends is good, too). AND. On Thursday, I got to pick up my best friend, Tracie, from the airport. She has come down for a short trip (she goes back to Utah tomorrow evening), so we’re soaking in as much San Antonio and Texas sights as we can. So far, we’ve been up to Waco (the Silos, Magnolia shop, Harp Design Co., the suspension bridge, and the Dr. Pepper museum) and have seen some of the Downtown sights (the Japanese Tea Gardens, the Riverwalk, the Alamo, and La Villita (and the Arneson River Theater). Tomorrow, we’re going to hike Enchanted Rock and check out Fredericksburg (so those pictures will be on next week’s blog). Paul was able to take a couple of days off so that Tracie and I could have a lot of time together. I’m so grateful for him!
The Weekly Weather: I wish I could say that the cooler temps have been hanging around, but they haven’t. At least the mornings have been cool, though. I think we’re supposed to have a cool front move in soon…so that will be nice.
What Paul’s Been Up To: The poor guy got a sinus infection the day before I picked Tracie up from the airport. He was pretty sure that’s what it was, but he still went in to urgent care to be sure (and to get some antibiotics). They did a chest x-ray and a COVID test (which came back negative, thank goodness) and then gave him some antibiotics. He’s starting to feel a bit better now that he has a couple of days of antibiotics in his system.
What Sarah’s Been Up To: As was already mentioned, I’ve been traipsing around town and around Texas. 😀 I’ll go into more detail with the captions for the pictures.
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He really enjoyed getting to go back to school. He comes home happy every day. It’s so great!
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She doesn’t like leaving Joseph at school, but she sure is happy when he comes home! She does like having more “Mom time” now that I don’t need to be helping Joseph with school.
