About four inches of water in some lightning bug containers left out overnight:

We haven't had much rain here so the ground is not absorbing like it should be... that's an understatement! Our backyard: Andrew had to take it too far of course, and insists I get out "his" boat.
(By the way, he's feeling much better...after the last post, a sick kid out in the rain doesn't make me look like the most responsible mother.)


  1. Oh wow you got a lot more rain than we did in PA!

    Btw, I'm Charlene a stay at home mom of six. Your blog is great! I always find it interesting to know how other people with big families do things.

  2. It's raining, it's pouring the old man is snoorrriing......!!
