Tis the season for thunderstorms. Last night we were warned about damaging winds, hail and isolated tornadoes. After all the hype, we ended up with a lot of wind and very little rain. Tonight, however, the rain has decided to pay us a visit. A very, very, very long visit. The lightning is intense and some of the thunder has been extremely loud. But it has been raining for hours. Luckily the wind isn’t too bad, not for this area anyway. I fear that if the rain doesn’t back off soon we may have to take a boat to school tomorrow…
We are working on our last week of school! I cannot begin to tell you how happy I am about this. The school year has gone by reasonably fast, but for some reason it has been a long one. And very stressful. I think everyone is ready for a little down time.
With the end of the school year comes the talent show. William has decided to yo-yo with Jonathon, a friend from his class and Catheryn is going to sing a song with Julia, her best friend. I hope to be able to catch them both on video, but I still have to work, and since there is no set schedule, it will be hit or miss.
I have more I would like to share with you about school, but I will save that for later.
Tomorrow our house will celebrate a birthday, but you will have to wait until tomorrow for pictures and a story. 🙂
And finally, the kids and I are getting ready to head down to Boise on Friday. Unfortunately Rob is unable to make the trip with us, so the kids and I will venture the ten hours to Grammy and Grampy’s house by ourselves. My sister and her three kids will also be there visiting, and we only see them once a year, so it should be a fun time.
I should probably head out, but first I will leave you with a picture from last night’s sky after the storm. I am not sure what it is about thunderstorms, but I find them to be somewhat… thrilling. And tonight we will fall asleep to the gentle roll of thunder, the occasional flash that lights up the whole house and the patter of rain on our little roof.
