We’ve pretty much been home bodies this week. There are a lot of people on vacation (or they have family in town), so there haven’t been any play-dates. Joseph came along with me when I did my visiting teaching (which is nice, since my companion has a son his age, and the person we visited has one close to his age), so I guess we could count that as a play-date. 🙂
Something that was fun for me was that I got to go to a Relief Society activity where it was basically a get-to-know-you type thing. We have a lot of military as well as medical students in our ward, so it seems like people move in and out a lot. I got to see the new faces that I don’t get to see because I’m in Primary, and I also got to know the sisters that I already knew just a bit better. I love being in an organization where there is such a strong bond.
During the weekend, we did a bit more, since Paul was home. We went out to eat at one of our favorite places (Jim’s) and we also set up the kiddie pool in the backyard for Joseph to play in. He LOVED it! Paul set it up on the patio, which is covered, so it was nice and shady. Joseph probably sat in there, splashing and playing with toys, for over 30 minutes. When it was time to get out, he pitched quite the fit. We ended up taking him on a car ride to get him to settle down.
This week’s cute moment: As of late, Joseph has been playing more than sleeping during nap-time. I’ve started to tell him as I put him in the crib, “Okay…it’s time to sleep, so no giggling or jumping. You need to lay here and rest.”Well, yesterday, he looked at me very seriously and then started to fake snore. I had to leave the room because I wanted to laugh so hard!
What we’re looking forward to: Paul’s got some training to attend next week in California, and he worked it out so that Joseph and I could drive out with him. At the end of the week we’ll head out and then have fun visiting with family and friends. I’m super excited!
