A few weeks ago I posted about the barrage of thunder storms in our area. Well, they are back. "Summer storms" are the more romantic name we southerners give them, but they really are more of a hassle. They come at a moments notice with torrential rain and lightning that would scare Ben Franklin back to his French mistresses in an heartbeat. And then an hour later, they are are gone with a blue sky filled with big, puffy white clouds.
We have had said storms every day this week - the first week of school to boot! The boys and I have come home exhausted, done the small amount of homework given this week, and eaten a light snack. Then, I have let them have a little down time to watch thirty minutes or so of television. (I know I am a terrible mom.) But today, the satellite went out and the storm was ablowing. So what did my guys do: Whine? Sulk? Grab the IPod Touch? Play with the DS? No... They grabbed a pack of cards and had to longest game of War I've seen in a long time. And had a ball!
Don't you love seeing your children unplugged and playing nicely together? Love. it!!!
