{rain, rain, came today}

Can I be thankful for rain . . . again?  I am!

Cloudy skies, beneficial rain and cooler temperatures - it was a great day!  When I say cooler, I'm talking about 69ยบ!  In June!  In Texas!  With the breeze it was downright chilly at times.

My boys are wonderful!  They've been helping me clean out the attics and storage room with really good attitudes.  I'm learning the balance of work & play.  My old self believed that we should work until we were done . . . and we were never done! My newer self has improved with my child raising:  all good things must come to an end so we work hard and play hard for a little balance.

 I think they knew I was talking sense when I suggested working in the attic and storage room this morning while we had awesome, cool weather. 

Landon has perfected the work/play combo and can do both at the same time.  {He was quoting Napoleon Dynamite at this point, "Dude, I got a whole three feet of air that time!"}  

Check out the pile that's accumulating on the bottom right . . . that's just the tip of the iceburg.  Yay, some happy kid will soon be getting a bike at the local Goodwill! 

Yes, Keaton is actually smiling up there in Attic 2
We were all smiling because there wasn't much up there and this part of the job was done in about 20 minutes.

 I love their idea of a reward . . . work hard and then go crabbing!

Who knew raising boys would be so much fun??

{As for Princess India . . . we are still missing her but she's not missing us!  I think she's loving Girl's Camp.}
