75 Days Straight of Rain…

Okay, maybe that is a slight exaggeration, but it sure seems like it is true.  When you actually struggle to remember if it is June or November, you know you’ve had crumby weather. 

Cabin fever creeps up quickly when you’ve had this much rain… especially when you live far from everything and have 3 very active little boys to entertain…

So, what to do?  Here are a few things these boys’ve done to keep it real on these rainy, rainy days…

…they’ve played with Wedgits, and evidently exercised the right to not wear pants…

Wedgits... don't mind the undies!

…they’ve thanked the Lord for their wonderful collection of  movies…

Movies galore...

…they’ve cuddled… Cuddle time...

… they’ve Learned… Advance our minds...

…they’ve learned some more… about flexibility and that Cooper really is a monkey…

Too much Curious George...

… they’ve watched Polar Express… yes, the Christmas movie.  Because they are convinced that it is still wintertime and that the rain is so ‘big’ that it looks like snow and snow means Christmas…

Polar Express in June??

… and when we know they are at the end of their ropes, they run… Run...…and run… 

and beat themselves up while they run…Don't punch yourself, Cooper! still running around the same loop of the house… through the kitchen, dining room, entry way, living room, breakfast nook, repeat… 127 times  You're almost there!

and there is always the fun of making faces so Mama can practice with her camera… Picture practice...

…oh wait… there is more running… you’d think it would tire them out… but no… 

Keep on Running!

… on rainy days, there is always the joy of daydreaming about the sun that will surely shine again… it will, right??…

Daydream about sunny days...

and when it gets to be too much, we just watch it rain…   Watch it rain... 

…more WedgitsWedgits...

…and then they bust out the laundry baskets and get creative…

Get creative with laundry baskets...   

and then more running… Keep on running...

So any day now, it might stop raining.  But until then, I suppose we’ll be thankful that rain makes corn, corn makes whiskey, and whiskey makes …

So cute, Lacey! Here's what this guy says about rain... "The best thing one can do when it's raining is to let it rain." ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

....and to think we're related to that wise Mr. Longfellow! Guess I'll just let it rain in Washington too.

That was a very fun post, Lacey. I'm sure I'll click on it many times today.
