Rain, Rain, Go Away

It's been raining all week -- and when it hasn't been raining, it's been cloudy and misty and threatening to rain.  And that's the forecast for several more days, too.

I keep putting fun fall things like apple picking and hiking and leaf-picture-taking on a to-do list and then having to put it off for sometime when we won't end up covered in mud.  Hopefully next week will be better. Because the last week has looked almost exclusively like this:

I'm SO GLAD we got Dot some rain boots.  (A rain coat is on the to-buy list, but fleece sweaters do the job pretty well, anyway.)   We still get outside basically every day, rain or shine, but we're still going a little stir-crazy.  This little girl is never quite happy unless she can spend HOURS outside, and I don't have THAT much patience for standing in the rain.

She sure does, though.

I'm sooooooooo sick of the rain, too. And let me tell you--at the advent of yucky weather every winter I wonder how I did it the last winter--as in, how I managed to keep myself and two children sane during those dreadful winter months when we couldn't go outside for hours. Every year we figure something out but those first few weeks of transition are killer! By the way, it was so fun to visit the other night. I really enjoyed it--it should happen more often.

It definitely should! We need to stop waiting around for people to have babies to have an excuse to hang out, and just hang out because. :)

Oh she looks so precious in that last pic! In fact, I think she looks a lot like Stella in it, and I've never though that before.

So sorry about the rain!
