Random Rainy Friday

We are on day 3 of rain. I'm not complaining though. I love rain, I love storms. My kids.. notsomuch. I've been racking my brain trying to come up with new and different things for them to do, so that they don't get too bored. Today we did "school", did a "science experiment" in the sink (Sink or Float) and then they played their elephant butterfly thing.

Then it was lunch and now nap. I am getting laundry done and hopefully will get the house cleaned up today. I like to have all that stuff done with before the weekend, so that when Kent is home we can just focus on the family and having time together. Doesn't always work that way, but when I can help it I try to make it happen. My mom is also coming home from a trip away tonight. I hope to swing by their house tonight if they get back early enough.

Tomorrow we have plans to take the kids to the movies to watch "Monsters vs Aliens". That is if the weather permits. So far we are until a slight risk for tornadoes, hail and damaging winds. Hopefully we will be able to take them. We need to find someone to keep Nathan though. Will have to figure out who soon.
Oh, got my A&P test back that I took right before spring break. Made an 87 on it. No too bad. Still would love to have an A on it, but a high B is good too. We have another test in there Thursday. I'm more worried about this one, because I don't feel we have really be taught the stuff. Lately the teacher has just been giving us copies of the notes and rushing through them because he has to stay on a certain schedule, which I understand, but I think it hurts the students in the long run. I guess I will just have to suck it up and teach myself most of it by rereading the notes a few times and reading what the text in the books teaches. Hopefully I will have enough of a grasp on it to understand it all.
Well, clothes need to be folded. Need to get on that while all the kids are napping... eh, scratch that.. Nathan is awake....

I'm doing some major cleaning today. Most of the totes and boxes for the yard sale are now out of my house, so I have room to move now.

In fact, I really should be cleaning now. Gotta toss in some laundry and balance the checkbook. Blah.

Have a great day! Stay safe in that yucky weather.
