Here in my part of South Texas; we had not received any rain since the 14th of March. This has caused our area to be in a drought situation and under a burn ban since mid Febuary. No joke, we have cracks in our property from lack of water. This passed Thursday, we had answered prayers in the form of a lovely mid-morning of rain. Let me tell you, it was such music to our ears -- we turned off all the lights and television to hear the sound being drummed on our metal roof.
One and one-half inches of beautiful life sustaining rain!
Here is our latest observation of the natural world. Lady Bug land, I had no idea their larva stage had them looking like alien alligators. Soon, they will crawl to the top of the habitat and begin their pupa stage.
This weekend, Sid came down so he and his father could replace the leaking radiator in his car. Let me tell ya, those two men were cut from the same cloth. It has been a blessing for my hubby to have some male bonding time this weekend.
Well I have some grass to mow, thankfully. I plan on visiting all I have been following this week since, I now have time to breathe and slow down.
With the new school year starting on this Monday, I am excited to get our new curriculum under way so Saenz, Zephyr and I will stay busy this summer.
What are ya'll going to do? Any summer vacation (holiday) plans? My holiday plans are to have lasik eye surgery this Friday. I am so excited at the prospect of not wearing glasses; I am fit to be tied.
OH SPECIAL NOTE: Next Saturday, our Cubby Bear will be awarded his Kindergarten diploma. We are so excited for him and his accomplishments. YEAH ZEPHYR!
