A package arrived today for William. He was so excited to be handed some mail to play with for real. He spends time every day trying to cute us out of our bills and newspapers to play with everyday.
Checking it out
It's a book! That plays music! William loved it immediately and calls it the "beep beep" right now. You know, because it beeps when you open it. The gift is from William's godmother to celebrate the anniversary of his baptism!
In other new, we've had a lot of rain recently. Between the plague of illnesses and the weather, I've been feeling pretty cooped up around here. Tonight, things became a little more worrisome for us.
Here is the creek that runs behind our property. It is usually a tiny creek that we can barely see. This was this evening after it had rained hard almost all day long. The picnic table you see is actually our neighbors (not in our yard, but usually MUCH further away from the water).
The view from our deck. The green along the bottom of the picture is where our backyard actually starts. The rain has quit for now, but more is predicted this week. We're keeping a close eye on things and have put some plans in place in case we need them (I know we probably don't need plans, but I feel better just knowing there is a plan).
There are some perks to all the rain: Rainbows!
And beautiful light at dusk! Even if it is just the neighbors back yard.
And wonderful clouds!
More rain clouds on the way....still are pretty
Sunset...and more rain on the way
