Rainy Days Can Still Be Sunny...
It turned out that swimming in the rain could be a lot of fun.
They used the pool float to "stay dry" (as if they weren't already in a bathing suit, in a pool....) Keeping the rain off their faces seemed to make the difference between fun and not so fun, sun or no sun.
Today is one of those rainy days. It's warm enough out, and there's no thunder, but the rain is pretty constant. But there is still a lot to be happy about...
My eighth grader headed off with his class on their end-of-year trip to New York City this morning, and despite the rain today, the weather tomorrow is supposed to be beautiful for their big boat trip to Ellis Island and their semi-formal Dinner Dance Cruise in New York Harbor. (Keeping my fingers crossed that someone takes good pics of him in his blue blazer!)
My high schooler has his first day of finals today - the end of the school year is here!
My youngest finished her last project - a paper mache diorama of an opossum - and took it with her in to school this morning - again, countdown to the end of a long and torturous sixth grade year!
And... I have some Big Book News brewing.... I'm not quite ready to share it yet, but *hopefully* by Friday I'll have an announcement to make!
So despite the rain, things here are looking sunny. What keeps you optimistic when the weather tries to wear you down?
