In a fit of frustration at the beginning of the summer I organized and labeled the bins we keep on high shelves in the playroom. Generally, these bins have been for toys we were rotating out or that the adults couldn’t stand anymore. Now they are for things like paint, paint supplies, and other themed items. One bin is for kits that the kids get, usually at birthdays, that often don’t get used and thus clutter up the already cluttered playroom.
Well, today it’s raining. It’s raining cats and dogs. It rained so hard most of the day the DOG wouldn’t even go out in it and she loves the rain. So this afternoon we pulled down the “Kits” bin. Thank heavens! Nobody finished anything, but everyone was happily busy (with occasional please for adult assistance) while I tried to find an orthodontist for Spencer.
The dog may not have liked the rain, but the kids did. They got completely soaked and muddy this morning. That’s the way it’s supposed to be on a day like today!
