We’re getting to the point in September where I’m just kind of over the heat and start looking forward to what Abigail calls “spooky season”. She takes after me and loves this time of year that starts with Halloween and rounds out after Christmas. It seems like the temperatures are finally taking a dip (albeit a very slight one). Even though the afternoons are still toasty, the mornings and evenings are a bit more bearable. Here’s to hoping they dip even more as we get closer to October! As for what we accomplished this week, it was a pretty typical week. Paul went to work, I went to work, and the kids went to school. Abigail is getting pretty good about not getting into mischief after school while she hangs out in my classroom as I prep for the next day. Joseph has been a trooper about walking to and from school (especially from, since that is often the warmest part of the day), and we are so grateful for the long hours and hard work that Paul puts into his job in order to support our family; not to mention the time he spends at home, making our yards beautiful and our home nice. Paul and I did go out to eat with friends yesterday to celebrate his birthday (which is today). It was nice to have adult conversation, but it was also nice to get back to our sweet kiddos. We have built a nice little life here and I love it!
