Yesterday, the kids had their first day of school. As we do every year, I took a picture:
(Yes, I have given up on getting the Diva to brush her dang hair already.)
We took the picture inside because it was raining. It started the night before. And continued through the morning. And the afternoon. So much rain, in fact, that school was let out early because the roads were flooding. And it kept raining.
School was canceled today. A state of emergency has been declared*. And still it rains. We shall see how it goes.
* We're so high on a hill that the rain would need to reach Apocalyptic levels before we'd need a canoe.** But we are luckier than many right now.
** which is great when there are floods. Not so great when you are returning from a long run around the neighborhood and have to face a 35 degree incline.
School is closed again today, because parents like to have brief glimpses of freedom snatched away.
