Tut, tut. It looks like rain.

Standard

We’ve had something like monsoon season here lately.  I was lucky to miss two weeks of it while we were in Michigan, but today we have a reprise.  Akiva is going to day camp only on Mondays and Wednesdays this month, so I’ve got both boys at home today.  They were already driving each other wild by 9:30 a.m., so I decided that, rain be damned, we were going out to the woods.

Dressed in their rain gear, they look completely adorable.  And getting out of the house and into nature always improves things.  We listened to the sounds of the rain and the birds, broke open pine cones to smell their aroma, jumped in puddles, and left trail markers à la Hansel & Gretel.

After getting completely soaked, we came home, changed into dry clothes, and made hot chocolate.  Other activities of the day included greeting the trash collector with applause (he took a bow and beeped the horn for the kids, it was awesome!), reading Blueberries for Sal, and making whole wheat pretzels.
