Week in review
"It's not really raining," said my daughter. "It's more of a sprinkle or maybe a drizzle. But it's not really raining."
"It will stop soon," said my son.
"Let's just go. Grab the ping pong stuff," I said.
We headed out the door and ran between the raindrops to the park. The kids set up the net across the wet table, and they played ping pong in the rain.
A lady walking by said to me, "It's raining." I nodded in agreement. "Yes," I said, "it's raining."
"Are those your kids?" she asked. I nodded and said, "Yes, they're mine."
"They're playing in the rain," she said. I nodded again and said, "Yes, they are."
I smiled at her, and she looked as if she thought we were nuts. But we didn't feel half as nutty as we would have felt if we spent another afternoon indoors.
The kids read a bunch of books and did some math and science this week, too.
