We had about 30 blissful minutes of off and on downpour and thunderstorms today. Raina was napping but Darius was wide awake and ready to get filthy wet! He was fighting some kind of serious monster crime in the road. It sure is tough with two busy kids and no yard to play in but we made it work this afternoon anyway! Darius was letting Bean out to go to the bathroom and didn't come back for a while. I found him sitting out there telling Bean that she "needed to poop" right then cause he had things to do. And of course Raina (naked) followed me. I tried to get them to come inside but gave in after a while. I did have to enforce the pants rule for Raina though...and she headed upstairs to grab whatever she could find (which turned out to be some freshly handed-down fleece pants that are quite a while away from fitting). So be it. They had a blast playing in the rocks that, had it not been for the rain earlier, would have had a disgusting coating of dog pee and poop residue.
