We've had 143 consecutive days without rain. The dust and allergens were getting unbearable. But finally, FINALLY, it RAINED!! Rain Today it's been raining all day long and I totally LOVE IT! All of our sports got canceled today...something that would have taken away our whole day. Instead we have had a wonderful, lazy, cozy day inside.

The boys and I went out walking to see how flooded the green belts were and they looked like a lake. The boys were skipping rocks like it was a real lake Newlake (I don't think the gardener who has to mow that grass under that water will be too pleased).

I know, it sounds rather silly, to be excited about rain. But think about it...143 days with NO rain. That's more than 4 months, really almost 5 months! And I know the heat is coming soon...very soon, so I'm just happy to have this one last hurrah of cold and wet, before it becomes hot and dry for 6 or more months.

This begins the boys' spring break. Let's hope having them home for a week, while I'm tied to the computer doing the final 24 yearbook pages, doesn't break me.
