Weekly Happenings: We spent a lot of this past week out of doors. The weather has just been beautiful. We’ve had park play dates, friends over to play, just playing on our own in the back yard, etc. To be honest, we didn’t do much else. It’s nice to have weeks like this on occasion.
The Weekly Weather: As aforementioned, it’s been beautiful. The mornings have been kind of cool (I’ve noticed frost on the grass and rooftops) but then it would warm up throughout the day. The pollen hasn’t even been that bad (yay).
What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been kept busy with school and work, as well as his new responsibilities as an assistant scoutmaster (mainly going to a training for it this past week).
What Sarah’s Been Up To: Not a whole lot out of the ordinary. I’ve finished a couple really good books. I kind of like being in two different book clubs. It provides a lot of suggestions for new stuff to read that I might not have normally thought of. Plus, it’s great to be able to meet up with other women to discuss the books and see different viewpoints and insights. It’s intellectually stimulating (and fun!) which is something I feel I might have needed a bit more of in my life.
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He enjoyed having several play dates and also loved being able to spend some of the money he’s been saving up (if he does well with his responsibility chart he gets a small allowance) on some toys he’s been eyeing for a while. It was a good lesson to sit down, count up his money, and separate the tithing (while giving a somewhat simplified explanation that the bishop uses the money to help people). It was also a good lesson for him to see how much certain things cost.
