Raining Cats and Dogs

It has been raining cats and dogs lately. The last four days we have only had a few moments of dryness. This made me realize how fun winter will be with a Kindergartner. They send them out for recess in these elements. So, I had to run out and find a rain jacket. We still don't have rain boots because for some reason they are impossible to find here. And then in just over a week I will be trying to find a good jacket and snow pants at our local Once Upon a Child. There is no need, in my opinion, to run out and spend $75 on stuff that she will outgrow in one season.

On the other hand, it has gotten beautifully Fall like here. I LOVE the temps. Today was 58. I think I am adjusting to life in Wyoming. Although, just in case, check with me in January to see how I'm doing with freezing temps and snow. We'll see then just how adjusted I am.

Abby is enjoying Kindergarten, for sure. She comes home bursting at the seams full of new info and fun things to tell me. I love it. Still miss her during the day but I'll get over it...I hope. Her favorite thing is recess. Of course. She also loves whatever special she has that day. So, today will be PE and Music. It really seems that in her third week of school she has started changing so much already. Look at this sweet pic of her. Doesn't she look like she's straight from the 80's?

Love that pic! I'm surprised that they still take the kids out for recess when it's like that. We're not allowed to take ours out in preciptationm and once the snow hits, we're stuck inside until it's off the ground and it warms up!
