A good day to go back to bed

It has been overcast and rainy-at times finding us in a downpour-since the weekend.

Many of you likely need rain as much as we do, we are thankful!

Well, that is, except for all my friends in Florida! Stay safe gang!!

Today is going to be another dark and rainy day.

Other than laundry, I need to find some things for us to do around here.

Right now, the kids are upstairs in the middle of a make-believe scenario, so I won't interrupt them just yet. I took them to see "Journey To The Center of The Earth" on Monday, so they are working their scenes between that and "Water Horse" which we have on dvd now.

Nothing like having a 6 year old American daughter roaming around your house with a British accent!

Anyway, I think we will do a science project and make a mini birdhouse.

Then maybe I can convince them to take a rest break while Mommy reads her new book!

I won the book from Jen over at The Wilson Six!

Thanks Jen! I have already read the first two chapters! I didn't realize how much I was in the mood for a good non-thinking read!

A cozy bed sounds good about now!


p.s. If you haven't seen either of those movies, I recommend them both!

Are you sure you don't want to homeschool? Because it sounds like you're already doing it. :)

I liked Hissy Fit a lot. It's a cute book.

Stacey: Thanks for the recommendations about the movies. With us having kids around the same age, it helps to have access to the views of other Christian parents. My husband and I don't always like to have to preview everything . . . but it's usually necessary. We were this close to taking the boys to the new Chronicles of Narnia, but we decided to watch it first without them. And boy, am I ever glad we did. I found it to be quite a dark movie with more violence than I choose to expose my boys to at this moment. I didn't even really enjoy it. I liked the book better. Hope you have a great day. I wish we could have some of your rain. It's scorching here right now.
