rainy day fun

Although the perpetual water droplets on our hydrangea have been beautiful, the kids were starting to get a little stir-crazy.  Paulie asked, "Why does it keep raining so much if it's not even April anymore?"  Fortunately, I could send the older 3 off to school, where I'm sure the teachers were lamenting another day of indoor recess.

Finn was home with me for the day.  Either the break in routine messed him up, or he's cutting his 2 year molars because he was Mr. Crabby all morning.  Coloring seemed to be the only activity that placated him for a little while.  Mommy was happy to accomodate.

He was so happy to discover the white crayon, that he'd previously thought was broken, actually did work!

A muffin after nap (along with some Rescue Remedy) perked him up a bit... did more rock painting.  (He's a guy obsessed with painting rocks these days.)

Hopefully after a good night's sleep, he'll be feeling better.


  1. Grady just saw this and said "it's Grady!"

  2. The color in that hydrangea is amazing! I can't wait for mine to bloom.

  3. Your hydrangea sure is pretty!

    Hope your little one feels better soon and the sun comes out in your corner of the world. :)

  4. Too cute about the white crayon!!!!

  5. Ohhhh! I've never seen such a gorgeous hydrangea photo! It's BEAUTIFUL!

    Your son sure is a cutie. :)

  6. How cute that he thought the white crayon was 'broken' :) The rock painting looks fun.

  7. Poor little guy....I hope he feels better soon. Rescue Remedy is such a good idea, I wish I would have known about it when Fauna was a baby. Hopefully the sun shines bright for you all tomorrow. :)
