Let the Good Times Roll

Weekly Happenings: We are DONE with distance learning! I’m not sure who is more excited about this: Joseph or me, haha. Other than that, our week was pretty ordinary. Oh…we did go to IKEA because it opened back up, so we got some shelves for some projects around the house.

The Weekly Weather: Well, it’s June…so it’s pretty much sunny, humid, and warm, with a thunderstorm here and there, haha.

What Paul’s Been Up To: He worked from home this week, which was nice. 🙂 He also managed to get the shelves that we bought all assembled. We got some cube storage for the upstairs (we’re switching out the train table as storage and going over to cube storage) and then we got some more cube storage so that he can build another bench to match the one that he built next to the piano. Right now, that shelf is chilling in our room until he has a chance to get the supplies to build the top and install it all. I am so grateful for his handiness! He also unfortunately broke a tooth this afternoon while eating lunch. Luckily there was an emergency dental place open. He’ll get a temporary crown on Tuesday and then a permanent one in a few weeks. Poor guy! 🙁

What Sarah’s Been Up To: I hosted both an Usborne Books (kids books) party and a Pampered Chef (kitchen supplies/gadgets) party, which is always a good time. Consequently, I was also able to pick out some fun free stuff for myself. Other than that, I was pretty much just doing the mom thing. 🙂

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He was beyond happy to be done with school. He had his drive-through awards ceremony, which was fun. He got the “Most Curious” award. Probably because he isn’t afraid to ask questions…lots of questions. 😉

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She has been quite the handful as of late. Luckily, she’s also been very cute. Here new thing is to gasp, hold up one finger, and say, “Wait! I have an idea!” 🙂

This Week in Pictures:

These two are the best of buddies (most of the time).
She wants to be with him at all times, haha.
Fort building.
Making modifications. Yes, he’s on top of the table…I didn’t notice it until after I took the picture and he had already hopped down…whoops, haha.
Inside their fort.
I had to take her upstairs to play after building the fort because she started playing Big Bad Wolf and Joseph wasn’t ready for the fort to be blown down, haha. She changed gears pretty quickly and organized a sleep over for all of the Little People.
Then she started prepping a meal…
…she told me that we were roasting marshmallows over a campfire.
Finally, she was a cowgirl. Yee-haw!
I suppose this could count as his “last day of school” picture. I took this for one of his last assignments that he had to do for school.
She’s really into dressing like the characters she sees on the TV.
Things that make me happy: memories of Magnolia and some beautiful ceramics that my brother Gary made.
Sometimes it’s a two-fuzzy-blanket morning. I have no idea why she chose the floor, though.
With his teacher to get his award.
Gotta get myself onto here sometimes!
When she saw me take a picture of myself, she needed one, too.
Little ham, haha.
We were snuggling on the couch and all of a sudden, I felt her hand wiggle into mine. 🙂
Wearing her “poofy” dress.
A cool garden buddy. These guys are nicknamed zipper spiders. Any guess as to why? 😉
Bring Your Bear to Breakfast Day…which is almost every day, haha.
She was scooting him around the house like this. Silly goose.
We went from having everything stacked in and on top of the train table to this cube storage. I love how much less cluttered it is!
