It rained on Monday. A lot. Like, total downpour all day. Which is funny since the weather forecast had been 72 and sunny.
It was pouring rain when I went to school pick-up. I was being all stealth and smart and got there 20 minutes early…to no parking. Guess I wasn’t the only one who thought to get there early. Good thing I wore a raincoat and my ruby red rainboots, just in case!
All the wetness was made worth it though when Jordan emerged from her classroom. I handed her a raincoat and she greeted me with:
“Wow mom it’s been raining so much today! It’s totally hoaring!”
Me: “Um, what is it doing honey?”
Her: “It’s hoaring, really hard.”
Me, a 12-year old boy suddenly taking over my personality: “Honey, go tell [my friend] Shannon what the rain is doing.” (Snicker, snicker)
And she did. And then she repeated herself all the way to the car. A little bit of sunshine at the end of a rainy day.
Besides hoaring, a fun thing to do on a rainy day would be to have your kids help you make these pops.
Remember the Soccer Crispy Treats I posted yesterday? Cutting circles out of the crispy treats leaves a lot of leftover. Here is what to do with that leftover goodness: mash them into balls, put ’em on a stick and dip them in chocolate. These would be great for Halloween or Christmas, just change up the sprinkles accordingly (if only I’d thought of that while I was making them…) Super easy and the kids love them.
And you know what else all this rain means? That it’s almost Christmas! So you might need some Christmas cookies. You’re in luck, since this is part of the 12 Weeks of Christmas Cookies. Check out the blog hop below for more great recipes!
I’m going to go wash my mind out with soap now, thankyouverymuch.
