Rain Rain Rain
We certainly have been getting a lot of it this week, and I ought not to complain since the pasture could really use it and it saves us from having to water the garden and the young trees. But the children are getting antsy. With no school and me trying to squeeze everything I can into what little time off from teaching I have left before we pick up again, they get bored and start begging for videos about mid morning. Well, the rain stopped and everything is wet, but I let them go out and explore the dripping yard. They are poking around under rocks and in puddles, and later I may give them permission to go down to the pond and take a look at the waterfall--a great place to find fish, turtles and frogs.
