Rainy Day Fun

We have really lucked out with the weather for the past several days, though we got a day of heavy rain this past week. I’m not complaining, we need some precipitation, it just makes it harder for A&N to get out. Hard, but not impossible. Case in point, we had a playdate with NP the other day, and the kids rode their bikes in the rain. NP rode over because she doesn’t live far, even though there was a light rain falling. The kids met her halfway, and all was well.

I made lunch for everyone (vegetarian, which is always more of an adventure) and then the kids entertained themselves while I worked on the barn. It worked out perfectly because the kids were really self-sufficient and didn’t pine for TV or video games all day. In fact, I told them they could use the computer, which they did for a short stint, but then they went off and continued playing a game they had made up. I love when that happens.

It’s nice to have buddies who don’t watch a ton of TV and play endless Xbox. I can’t tell you how fortunate we are to live in this area, many of our friends are not completely enamored with TV. It helps that we live in the wilds of New England, where suburban temptation and angst are not the norm. Having grown up in the midst of it, I can tell you that it’s not all that it’s cut out to be.

Until the next time, thanks for reading, and thanks to Cuba Gallery for the pic.
