Weekly Happenings: This week has been pretty average, with one highlight for the kids: Paul was able to finish up the swing set in the back yard, so the kids have been enjoying playing on it in the evenings, when it has cooled down a smidge. Oh, and today I took the kids to the zoo to help chase away the cabin fever.
The Weekly Weather: It’s been a little cooler, thanks to a tropical storm that was off the coast (which gave us some rain). We also got a good thunderstorm that came through last night.
What Paul’s Been Up To: He got the swing set done, which was a huge project. He was working from home this week, so that helped him to be able to squeeze in working on it.
What Sarah’s Been Up To: I’ve mainly been keeping the kids happy, healthy. and the like. I did host book club, though, which was fun. I had a few of my friends in the house and then we had more friends join via Zoom, which is a computer program that allows for people to “meet up” virtually using computers, phones, tablets, etc.
What Joseph’s Been Up To: Pretty much a rinse-and-repeat from last week: summer vacation fun. 🙂
What Abigail’s Been Up To: She’s also been pretty much doing the same stuff. She did learn (the hard way) not to walk in front of the swings while Joseph is swinging. 🙁 I was across the yard, so I couldn’t stop her from walking where she wasn’t supposed to. Luckily, even though she got knocked over (poor Joseph tried so hard not to hit her, but it really was unavoidable), she didn’t get hurt too badly. I’m kind of hoping it was enough of a traumatic experience to help her remember not to do it in the future, though.
