Yay! It’s Spring!

Weekly Happenings: Okay, so I know that it isn’t officially spring, but it’s practically here in San Antonio. The freezing temps seem to be behind us (Hallelujah to that) and there is a warmth in the breeze. This past week, we didn’t really do anything out of the ordinary. We’re looking forward to this next week which will be Joseph’s spring break (yay for getting to sleep in a bit)!

The Weekly Weather: As I’ve mentioned already, the freezing temps have left and we’re in the wonderful in-between time that is spring in San Antonio. It isn’t cold, but it isn’t melt-your-skin hot, either. Every once in a while, a cold front will move through, but that just means it’ll be in the low 60s instead of the upper 70s-low 80s.

What Paul’s Been Up To: He was rather busy this weekend. He built himself a new workbench, planted some new plants for the side yard (more about that in a bit), and spread composted manure in the yards to help them wake up (they were already mostly dormant, but the snow made them go completely dormant).

What Sarah’s Been Up To: Pretty much the normal stuff: taxi-driving, piano teaching, feeding our brood, etc.

What Joseph’s Been Up To: He had a good week of school and liked that they got to have pajama day this past week.

What Abigail’s Been Up To: She has been getting better at playing on her own, using her own imagination (instead of wanting me to play with her all of the time). It’s fun to see what she comes up with. It also provides me a glimpse into what things she might be worried about, scared of, etc. (since she’ll often act out those scenarios with her animals and felt dolls).

This Week in Pictures:

Playing with her felt dolls. They had fun playing with their pets, had sleepovers, and fought over clothes. 😀
We took advantage of the beautiful weather to go to the park.
Oh, to be that limber again!
He used to be really scared to do this. Now he scampers right across.
She’s a big fan of slides.
One of the reasons we went to the park. 😉 We knew it would be there (they have an agreement with our HOA to be there once a month) and pre-ordered. I had a brisket grilled cheese sandwich that was…amazing.
This conglomeration of toothbrushes, toothpaste, and cups was kind of driving me crazy.
All it took was a couple of new containers to make it better. Luckily, Target still had the same stuff they had when I redid the kids’ bathroom, so I was even able to find matching stuff.
I also got Abigail some new shirts, since she really needs to be moved up a size. I was so happy with all the cute options that seemed to cater to her rather spread out tastes. There’s flowers, a llama, Frozen, Grogu (a.k.a. Baby Yoda or “the Child” from The Mandalorian), and Pikachu from Pokemon.
Showing me her Buc-ee shirt (Paul went through New Braunfels on his way to a convention and stopped by Buc-ee’s, so he grabbed shirts for the kids).
Playing with her animals.
Abigail was excited that they “matched”.
They both have Grogu on their shirts (this was when Joseph had pajama day for school).
She loves it when her brother pushes her!
Swing fun.
Getting ready to go down the slide.
Getting their spin on.
Somehow they never bonked heads (thankfully). I thought for sure that they would.
Dinner a few nights ago: roast and veggies (carrots and onion) done in my pressure cooker and fresh rolls (which I made that morning) with homemade honey butter. It was so yummy!
Playing with Play-doh…wearing an old marching band booster club shirt that used to belong to either my mom or dad (from my marching band days).
Paul’s work bench. He was able to get it together in just a couple of hours.
My new side yard plants!
I love looking through the window and seeing green.
They’ll be even prettier when they bloom (they have little yellow flowers).
This year’s tomato plant!
I decided it was probably a good idea to have more than one pair of glasses. That way, if something happened to one pair of glasses, I would have a back-up pair to wear until I could order new ones. I decided to stick with exactly the same frame shape, but get the tortoiseshell version. Since my black pair is older, it’ll be my back-up pair now.
