We have had a spectacular winter. Hardly a gray day in the bunch and maybe 1 or 2 days of rain in the last six weeks. Its made our very quiet winter break more bearable with sunny afternoons that have been perfect for walks, bike rides, various ball activities or trampoline marathons. But that all changed last night at 8:00 when it started to rain, and it hasn’t stopped. We have had thunderstorms and borderline hail. The streets are flooded and the natives restless. We have 2 rules during break, no kids media between 10am-8pm and you must be dressed before lunch is served. Well I don’t have the fortitude to enforce the law today. Its such a crappy, gray day that after I took these pictures of the kids getting soaked, I relented and they are now spaced out watching episodes of Get Smart probably for the next several hours. After posting this I am going to get into bed with some tea and read my book until I fall asleep.
