That's going to be a problem because our kids don't like the park here (so much for all of my research of the area). They aren't ready for day or field trips yet. They don't want to color, read or play indoors all day either. But they do want to swim. A lot. Here they are today before the rain came down in buckets.
Here we are after the rain began..
Yep, we caved. We plopped the kids in front of the DVD player and computer. Scott, a staff attorney for the Flight Attendants Association, was relieved to do some work and focus on anything other than ... OMG how are we going to do this for the next fifteen years???. I don't remember what I did. (I've been told that this loss of memory is called Mommy Brain --- now, who told me that?)
But I digress.
Jose watched several episodes of Winnie the Pooh. Evelyn watched Serenita (the Little Mermaid), which was very sweet because in some ways she is nearly tween and in others, she is still a sweet little girl.
It stopped raining by dinnertime and then it was time for winding down, washing up and getting ready for bed. And now, it's time for Scott and me to do the same. Good night dear friends and family. We miss you all. Thank you for your public postings and private emails. Please keep them coming. They sustain us through the ups and downs of dealing with these new, adorable, sweet little children who are, well, not always so. ;)
