When I was a teacher I hated the words "Rainy Day Schedule" because it meant that I wouldn't get lunch and the kids wouldn't get recess and we wouldn't have a break from each other. Now, as a homeschooling mama, the words aren't so scary. Instead of feeling trapped inside, we actually went out and played in the rain. The kids had a great time. It was a nice change of pace since it has been 110+ all summer long. The rain cooled us off to about 74 degrees. It was wonderful!
