We have had some rainy weather here lately! In California we NEED the rain, but I'm not sure which I love more (insert snark here!) - being trapped in the house with three little ones because of the rain...or being trapped inside with 34 wild seventh graders because of the rain! After a morning of a lot of pent up energy on Saturday, I decided to get the kids dressed in their rain clothes, and out we went. I let them play in puddles and get completely drenched (their shoes are STILL wet!) and we just had a grand old time puddle jumping. Our neighbors came out to run errands, and ran the kids to the car one-by-one as quickly as they could. They looked over and, I'm sure, thought we were INSANE for being out there. But the kids had a good time.
Tonight I'm making an easy Portobello Mushroom Parm, from my friend Brooke! I'm excited, because my hubby and I love mushrooms and I never think to make them!
Isabella may be a future little teacher. On Sunday morning when we woke up, she read "The Foot Book" by Dr. Seuss to the boys. She kept telling Aiden and Connor, "Look at me!" and "Pay attention!" because they weren't giving her their undivided attention during story time. Cracked me up! Welcome to the club, sister; I feel you on their lack of attention.
On Monday it was supposed to rain all day. I didn't care if it rained, but I just wanted to make sure it wasn't raining too hard when I got there or when I left - because I was carrying a whole bunch of stuff, including a laptop, prizes for my peeps, candy, and all sorts of materials into my training. By the time I left, we had lucked out because the rain had held out all day! Literally not one drop. The photo below on the left was taken when I got in my car and it started a literal DOWNPOUR minutes after I shut my car door. The photo below right was taken after transporting three little ones - child by child to the car in the downpour - from preschool. It actually doesn't even look as bad in the photos as it actually was. When I came home, my hair was so wet, it had soaked my clothes. #longhairproblems
