As you may have noticed we have been getting a bit of rain this week here in Texas! It has been fun. The temperature has dropped this week and it is starting to feel like fall here. We have been enjoying the cooler weather. Friday night and Saturday were particularly crazy. We had a lot of rain on Friday. I actually left work a bit early because I was worried about the storm coming in. We got about 5 inches of rain overnight on Friday and Saturday and it rained all day Saturday. I was supposed to go with the youth to the temple on Saturday morning early but it was so rainy that we cancelled the trip. There were several roads closed in Pflugerville because of flooding that morning. We had our normal lake of water in our back yard.
Other than the rain this has been a pretty standard week. I have had work every day and some of the days have been crazy. We had one of the guys on my team get loaned out to another team so we’re one man short of what we’re used to so we’re all having to pick up some of the slack.
Sarah has been great this week. She had several ladies in the area come over to decorate Halloween cookies. She spent most of the night on Tuesday making a stack of sugar cookies and then had the ladies over on Wednesday morning to decorate. She had several people come over but not as many as she had originally hoped. They had a good time even though the kids were a bit crazy.
Eliza and James got flu shots on Tuesday and so they’ve been having a bit of a rough week. Eliza was so brave. We had her come watch us get shots last week so she could see what was going to happen. When they got to the doctor she actually volunteered to go first. In telling me about it after, she said that she was a little scared and that she got a little poke. She was super. James, of course, had a harder time. He was sick the day after a bit and has had trouble sleeping since he got that shot. Eliza also has been stuffy, along with the rest of us, and is having a tough Sunday night today.
