We don’t get much rain here, so when it rains, life pretty much stops. But we found stuff to do… kind of!
Monday was rainy all day. It was a holiday too. So our friend Tara had a play date at her house. There were 18 kids there. She is brave!
Tuesday we headed to the library for story time and finding a few books. We had to wait before leaving for the rain to die down. It didn’t, so we made a run for it.
In the afternoon we made Valentine Chocolate Chip cookies. They were Valentine because we used pink, red & white M&Ms. Avery doesn’t know it, but we used half white flour and half wheat. We also used only 2/3 of the chocolate chips (& M&Ms) the recipe called for.
Wednesday it poured again, but we had good thunder and lightening too. Sawyer and I were able to run a few errands before picking Avery up from school. We darted through the raindrops… it was “fun.” In the afternoon (no rain) we went to find some good puddles to jump in. We did. They got soaked and cold, so it was bath time.
After baths we made pizza for dinner. Dan helped Avery make a heart shaped pizza.
Thursday was probably the most rain. Sawyer had a doctors appointment. While in the waiting room he fell (big surprise) into a wooden chair leg and got his firth bloody nose. It wasn’t too bad, but still blood!! Then he got 3 shots in his legs. Needless to say, he napped well that afternoon.
Thursday evening Avery had Awanas. I tell you, I really didn’t want to go out, but I did! Not very many kids were there. It was “weasels” night (measles night) and Avery got to hold the American flag. She was excited.
While I was getting Dan’s dinner, in the Taco Bell drive thru, the weather service issued a warning of marble sized hail, lots of rain, wind, thunder and lightening! I hurried home, Dan went to pick up Avery up!
Friday- guess what? It poured again. After making a much needed Target run, we went to Blooms, a kids consignment shop, we call “the toy store.” I had some credit there, so I got to “shop” while the kids played.
