Well, after having NO RAIN for weeks and weeks, it finally rained. (eight inches so far) Only, it has rained so hard, for so long, that school has been cancelled for the day. Because school was cancelled, preschool open house was cancelled. The day just went to "you know where" in a hand-basket. You know how when your kids were little you could just sneak into their rooms and turn off their alarms, and they would sleep until 9? Not any more! They both had a heart attack, and thought they had over-slept and missed the bus. Long story short, EVERYONE was up by 7:20. So much for sleeping late. Yesterday, Levi brought home another supply list. This one was for science class. Seems he needs another binder, more paper, colored pencils, pens, and a marble composition book. Oh, and he is upset that we didn't send money for his P.E. uniform on Monday. Some kids brought it in and already received uniforms. "How was I supposed to know this?" I asked him. He shrugged his shoulders. "They must have older brothers and sisters," I added, to another shoulder shrug. I see we have entered a new phase. This one is called "no-matter-what-happens-in-the-kids-day-life-whatever-it-is-somehow-it-is-your-fault". Yesterday I ordered both boys a new backpack from Land's End. Neither of the ones I bought at the end of the school year are working. I got the Classmate ones. Hopefully, they will be large enough. Wyatt wanted his name on his, but as you can imagine, Levi did not, lol.
Oh, and family? I ordered a new wagon for the beach house. It is coming directly from Little Tikes.com. So... if anyone was looking for one, thanks, but you can stop searching. Apparently wagons are seasonal items and the one like we had, is hard to come by. It will be here in one to two weeks. Sorry for the inconvenience if you are/were planning on using it before then. I can only hope that whomever stole it, rots you know where, lol.
update: Bowman Barrier bridge is flooded, Mt. Pleasant Rd. bridge is flooded, corn in the bottoms is flooded, Miami Church is almost flooded, Barrier Store bridge is almost flooded, second band of rain just hit. Looks like we aren't going anywhere today!
