Summer is Coming!

Weekly Happenings: This past week was a pretty typical one. We didn’t really go anywhere out of the ordinary or do anything out of the ordinary, either. I don’t mind when that happens, though. It makes the “more fun” weeks more special. Paul did assemble our pool, though…which provided some relief from the heat and humidity.

The Weekly Weather: It’s been rather warm and humid (typical late spring weather), but it’s supposed to be triple digits all this next week. I’m sure glad Paul got the pool put together!

What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been busy with work, school, and home life. He did go see the new movie, Solo (about Han Solo) with a friend, which he enjoyed.

What Sarah’s Been Up To: The antibiotics worked rather quickly to clear up my strep throat (yay!). I had a wonderful meeting with our Relief Society presidency (as well as some of the stake Relief Society presidency). It’s so good to meet with them and find out more about my new calling and how I can best assist my presidency. 🙂

What Joseph’s Been Up To: The fun end of the year stuff at school continues. He has been enjoying playing with Abigail (and helping her walk). He also has procured a new Yo-Yo Ball which he has been making up tricks with.

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She has been battling a small cold which she seems to over, finally. She also decided a couple nights ago that she didn’t want to go back to sleep after waking up in the middle of the night. She seemed fine as long as either Paul or I were holding her (or letting her crawl all over us), she just didn’t want to be in her bed. We finally got her to go into her crib so that we could go back to bed. I’m not sure if she ever fell back to sleep, though (she was quiet and not crying, at least). Luckily that was Friday night, so we all got to catch up on sleep the next day. She’s also gotten more brave with walking and will walk between two people (usually me and Paul) rather readily. There was one night that she turned from where she was standing (by the couch) and started walking towards the recliner. It seemed like she did it without thinking, almost automatically. She realized what she was doing after about 3 steps and then dropped down to her knees to crawl the rest of the way, haha. So…progress. 🙂

This Week in Pictures:

This is what happens when you refuse to nap. You fall asleep on the two minute drive to your brother’s school.
The toad who lives in our backyard.
Paul took the previous picture as well as this one and put his shoe there for scale. He was trying to come back in the house after being in his office finishing homework and had to wait until this guy had his fill of the beetles that would just walk past him.
She didn’t want to let go of her jingly ball, so she had to figure out how to walk and hold it at the same time. 🙂
Let’s play, “Spot the Toad”!

It’s the perfect size for us. 🙂
