And it's still here (the rain, I mean)


What rain we've had!! Cold and windy and lots of it! I'm done. We're stuck at home ALL day today (as opposed to only MOST of the day for the last three). Geof.'s headed up near D.C. after work to look at a Nissan Quest. We'll see if he comes home with good news.



Dayne's had more playdates than usual this week.., but you wouldn't know it. She still talks about how little she does and how much she doesn't want to "be at home all day", again. Sorry, Dayne! We did meet Cole for lunch today which mixed things up a bit. I pulled the girls in the bike trailer, in the rain. You'd think I was riding around naked with how people stared at me. Come on, it's not even half a mile!





You think June's ready for a baby brother? I do.....don't! Yes, I adore this little baby Milo (a friend of our's son), but I don't feel any urges.




June's so, so happy, though! };
Like I said, we met Cole for lunch today. I talked with his teacher a bit before they started class. She said he was in the special reading class but still struggling. Hm.., what to do? The kid HATES flashcards, likes me reading to him, but it's like pulling teeth, no worse, plucking nose hairs, to get this kid to read to me! Ugh..
I even have a fun reading website posted on my blog that he'll do..., but I guess it's not helping. I dunno.
Well, rain, rain, go away.

This is totally weird, but Dayne was in one of my dreams last night. I can't even remember what it was about, but I remember sitting at a table and she was there, her exact face and everything. Creepy, huh?

I feel your weather-related pain! I hope it clears up real soon and I hope the sun comes back to AK real soon too, oh wait, that's not gonna happen till March is it?!

Leland has been making crowns ever since her afternoon at your house. Thanks for watching her, she had a blast.

Ugh my little heart goes out to you. My Dawson struggles and I mean struggles. When I figure out what it takes to get these little guys to read I'll let you know. Until then...hang in there!

That June is a cutie! We had rain ALL of Oct. We are glad to have had a reprieve. Oh, I need to learn how to do that black and white and add color where I want it.. I can't figure it out. Help!

so all the information i crammed into my brain in the past 48 hours for a human development test is actually coming in handy! According to the experts, if you're reading to Cole and he's atleast following along with the words he'll be just fine and catch up with his age group reading level later on...

Crap, No I have a big nice one. Nikon though. I just need to learn Photoshop. I think you can do it in there. Love your blog! Thanks! :)

Thats so like you to ride out in the rain. I'd do it, too! Your kids are so cute! I love the color swap thingy you do. Someday I'll figure out how to do that on our camera.
