Monday Minute

It's raining again. Buckets. Cats and dogs. Torrential downpour. And it's also summer break. So you know what that means. . . .

We have a kind of rainy day tradition at our house. When it's this wet and rainy, what is there to do? Yes, I'll pull out the puzzles and games. That's a given. But right now, they are building a mega fort downstairs that I'm sure will probably take even longer to clean up than it did to build.

Uh, oh- they've just surfaced with the words,"Mom, where are the flashlights?"

Next thing on the list, cookies- the homemade kind. And at some point, we will become crazy people and go puddle jumping and dance in the rain. Just for the heck of it.

What are your rainy day traditions? Would love to hear 'em. It's always good to get some new ideas!

Rain on,

  1. Hi! This is not incredibly creative, but we pulled out our sleeping bags from the closet, broke out the candy and popcorn, and popped in a movie. Then we shut the blinds and have a home-made "movie theatre!"
