The Beauty of Rain

"It's raining, it's pouring... the old man is snoring..."

The number of days it's rained here since May can be counted on one hand. As much as we've enjoyed the sun and warmth, we welcome the refreshing rain that's falling today. Our land is so thirsty! And to enjoy the beauty that comes in small droplets of water...

"Let tHem praiSe the LORD for HIs great loVe and for all his wONderFul deEds to theM. For HE saTifiEs the THirsty and filLs the hUngRy with gOod thiNgS." -- Psalms 107: 8-9

And the reference to "the old man is snoring"-- it actually applies! Dwayne went steelhead fishing last night and the photo of his catch was taken at 2 a.m. this morning. So, fish for dinner, then we're off to snooze!

Signs that Summer is Ending...

The local aquatic center's last day was labor day, so we convinced Grandpa, Grandma and Dad to join us for a play day. (If any of you know my dad and husband, you'll be as amazed as I was to see them playing in water!!!) It was great weather on our last summer water play day.

The following weekend I got to enjoy my annual scrapbooking weekend--so relaxing (no cooking!) and productive (I did 40+ scrapbook pages!!!) It's one of my favorite weekends of the year-- and is crazy fun w/ all those scrappy women!

And we ushered in the football season by attending the last official Vandal vs. Coug Battle of the Palouse. I'm sad that we won't get to have this freindly rivalry each year anymore, but we did enjoy the game and the comments about our "blended" Vandal/Coug family! (We won't mention the final score...)

First Day of Preschool!

And equal air time to Allison who started preschool at Footprints a week after public school started. She was so excited to go do craft projects with friends and I was so glad to see the new preschool open its doors. Joyous day!
