Weekly Happenings: This past week Joseph was on Spring Break. It was nice to be able to sleep in every day (especially since a couple of us are still struggling with the time change that comes with Daylight Saving Time). We had play dates, went to the zoo, and relaxed at home. Because of the craziness that’s going on with the coronavirus, we’ve also made sure to wash our hands more often than before and have kind of kept close to home. Thankfully, we normally keep a couple flats of water on hand to begin with, and I happened to stock up on toilet paper and hand soap before a lot of the activities and events started getting canceled, so we haven’t been affected by the shortages at all. It will be interesting to have church at home, though (since the leaders in Salt Lake have told us to cancel all meetings, including Sacrament meeting). Also, Joseph’s school district has decided to close down all the schools for the next week, so Spring Break has been extended. I think that we’ll be keeping even more close to home this time, though. We want to be able to help with the social distancing that the city leaders are advising, which will hopefully prevent mass spreading of the virus.
The Weekly Weather: It’s been really nice spring weather: sunny and warm (but not too warm). We’re supposed to get quite a bit of rain this next week, so I’m glad we got to enjoy a bit of the sunshine.
What Paul’s Been Up To:He only worked part of the week and then took Thursday and Friday off. He spent a lot of that time doing some yard work and starting some needed maintenance on some of the pipes for the irrigation system.
What Sarah’s Been Up To: I’ve mainly been an entertainment device this week…also a transporter to fun places. 😉
What Joseph’s Been Up To: I’ve sort of let him rot his brain on video games this week, haha. I was not anticipating also having school off next week, so next week I’ll probably make sure he does something a bit more constructive.
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s been perfecting her “little sister” game by pretty much shadowing her older brother. Thankfully, he’s extremely patient with her!
