This morning Treefrog had three friends over (that is five kids in case you were counting!). We played upstairs for about an hour, had a snack, and then I realized that the boys (there were four of them altogether) needed to burn some energy. It was raining, but when isn't it in the Pacific Northwest? I gave up. We trudged out into the backyard, rain and all, and played outside with balloons. It began simply as a survival method what with the five kids in my small house. It ended as a fun time for all; muddy shoes, wet heads, and smiles all around.
A rainy day indeed.
