Weekly Happenings: This past week was pretty typical. We didn’t do too much since I was still trying to rest so that my back could get better. Towards the end of the week, I started feeling well enough to let the kids go out in the backyard to play. I trust Joseph to go on his own, but Abigail still needs a bit of parental supervision (she only listens to Joseph if she feels like it, haha)…so I needed to be out there.
The Weekly Weather: It’s been really nice. Kind of cold in the mornings and then nice and mild in the afternoon and evening. One of the perks of living in south central Texas. 🙂
What Paul’s Been Up To: He’s been able to work from home, which was really nice as I was working on recovering. He’s been such a help while I’ve been laid up. I’m so thankful for him!
What Sarah’s Been Up To: Mainly trying to get better! I’m happy to report that I’m almost there! I’m still a little stiff if I’m getting up after sitting/lying down for a long amount of time, but my range of motion is almost all the way back to normal. Huzzah! It was pretty rough going there for a while, not being able to bend at the waist…and it would even hurt if I was walking or standing for a long time. I’m so grateful for the ability to heal!
What Joseph’s Been Up To: He’s been so helpful. Picking up things I’ve dropped, running up and down the stairs to grab things for me (stairs were really hard), helping with Abigail…all while still going to school. He’s such a blessing!
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s been her typical awesome self this week. A little sassy, a lot sweet, and doing things to make us all laugh a ton. One night, Joseph wanted to play charades. It was Abigail’s turn (you can imagine how this turned out, ha). She started running/dancing around, acting all crazy. Joseph and I were pretty bewildered for a moment…and then Joseph asked if she was acting like herself. She said, “Yup!” 😀 Oh, and one cute “Abigail-ism”: she’ll sometimes say “shine-shine” instead of “sunshine”. She’ll usually catch herself and correct herself, but man, it’s cute!
This Week in Pictures:
Bonus Video: There is a father-daughter duo from Kaysville, Utah who have started making YouTube videos of themselves doing covers of all sorts of songs. They recently did a cover of The Beatles’ song, “Let It Be”. This has always been one of my favorite songs (especially after I learned that “Mother Mary” is actually Paul McCartney’s mother, who passed away when he was young). In a time of quite a bit of turmoil, sometimes it’s good to just…let it be.
