It is still raining at our house.
Don’t get me wrong. I am glad God sends the rain to water field and tree and cool us off and all the rest of that stuff I tell my children.
But… can a girl get a break? There have been seven children cooped up inside these four walls for going on four days now.
Extremely antsy children.
Because they realize that summer is quickly drawing to a close and the days of swimming and fishing and picnicking are fading into fall.
The rain is hindering us from enjoying these last few days outdoors before we start back in on our schooling schedule.
We have had coloring contests and movies and popcorn and Pack It All In and there are always the Olympics to watch. The thing is, I have just about run out of creative brain power to come up with any more interesting indoor activities.
And as a testament to our desperation for something to do, here is a conversation that just took place.
8 yr. old: “Mommy, tell me to draw a scene from any type of habitat and I will draw it.”
Me: “Okay, draw a desert scene.”
8 yr. old: (disappointed)“Oh… I wanted you to say a forest.”
Me: “Alright, draw a forest scene.”
8 yr. old: (Skipping off) “OKAY!”
