I was all set for another steamy day, but at about 11:30 the clouds were rolling in and by shortly after noon the temperature dropped to 68 degrees and the rain started pouring. Audrey and Ethan were declaring that they were going to die. Audrey was saying, “We’re going to Heaven!”. Isaac was copying her We survived. There was a ton of rain in a very short time. There are some tree limbs down here and there. Half a tree seems to have fallen over the Luce Line trail east of town. Our basement has stayed dry. It really makes us think that our earlier flooding was due to how saturated the ground was and not as much about a particular heavy rain storm.
Ethan started working on his “+1″ math facts today. If only all days were this easy! After we finished our school work, I let the kids watch an episode of Liberty’s Kids on netflix. It’s an animated show set against the American Revolutionary War. They enjoy it and it’s a little break for me. Swimming lessons were canceled for the evening because of a power outage. That meant that I could get my run in earlier.
They filled up the wagon a couple of times.
Earlier this afternoon, while Isaac was napping, I worked on some things on the computer. When I got up to do something else, I found Audrey napping in the middle of the den.
She was wearing her “princess” mask” and was fast asleep.
And, a bonus photo from the other day:
We call this the lion princess. I can’t believe she pulled this costume out and then put her princess dress on over it. That’s our girl!
