Long Summer Days

Weekly Happenings: We’ve reached the point of summer vacation where Joseph is asking more frequently just how much longer until school starts. I can’t say that I blame him, though. It’s been so hot that we haven’t done much. There were a few play dates and a trip to the zoo, but other than that, not much out of the ordinary.

The Weekly Weather: This previous week was another scorcher. We had temps in the triple digits with the humidity making it feel even warmer. Poor Joseph had a hard time understanding that it was hot enough that it could actually make him sick if he played outside for too long. Thank goodness for air conditioning!

What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s still on break from school (and will be until September). Work, yard work, and spending quality dad/son time with Joseph (not to mention time with the whole family) still kept him pretty busy.

What Sarah’s Been Up To: Not too much on my end. The kids kept me pretty busy most of the time. I love it, though. 🙂

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He had fun playing at the park, going to the zoo (both morning trips to make sure it wasn’t too hot yet) and having a friend over to play.

What Abigail’s Been Up To: Cuteness overload, as usual. She has been figuring out the walker (she’s still pretty much stuck in reverse, though) and has also been trying to figure out how to throw things that she’s holding (still working on the whole “letting go” aspect). She likes to shriek and if she sees something she really wants, she gets so excited that she literally start shaking. It’s pretty funny.

This Week in Pictures:

At the zoo, roaring like a lion…
Giving me a “creepy bug face”.
Hanging out on the hippos.
I walked out one morning to find this guy (or girl…who knows) just chilling on our front walk. I’ve heard cicadas in our trees plenty of times, but I’ve never seen one this close up.
I love how she smiles with her whole face!
