Rain, Rain Go Away!

I think I may be experiencing Seasonal Affective Disorder. It has done nothing but rain here for weeks!! It is just yucky outside and so dark and dreary. Our grass is loving all the rain, but it is so wet that Mark hasn't been able to cut it. A little concerned we will end up with a snake in our yard, so want it cut as soon as possible. He was able to cut the front yard last Friday, and it already needs to be cut again! The back yard is just too wet to even try.

All this rain means that the playground at school is also too wet for the kids to go outside and play. Jonathan and his friends are a little stir crazy. Child needs to get outside and run off some of his energy!!

Jonathan and I have been enjoying spending time together this week while Mark is gone. We went to his Gymboree class last night and he did really well listening and staying on task. (Sometimes the need to run and play freely is just too strong to stay on task with the teacher.) This week is Teacher Appreciation Week at his preschool. We went to Home Depot today to buy some plants for his teacher. Within a minute of walking into the plant section, he found a rock and a puddle of water. By the time we left, his shoes and pants were pretty well soaked and he had mud all over his shirt where he kept wiping his hands. He likes to play in it, but he does not really like for his hands to be dirty. Funny boy! So we came home and got straight in the shower today to clean him up. He did well in the shower for the first time. I had him stand up on the little seat and he did better being a little higher up. He usually takes a bath, but I didn't want him to be sitting in all that nasty dirty water. So shower it was today!

Mark is coming home from Atlanta tomorrow. Thank goodness! We miss him!! He visited his brother and family while he was there and had a great time playing with our niece. She will be one in July and is just such a pretty little girl. Jonathan and I were jealous that Mark got to go without us!!


Nothing else to really report. A short one!! Who would have thought it was possible!! Hope ya'll have a great rest of the week, and hope it stops least for a little while!!
