The spring here has been the wettest suckiest spring that I can ever remember. Several rainfall records were broken and people started calling it Juneuary. Waking up every morning to grey skies and cold dampness was very nearly pushing me over the edge. In all honesty I was starting to just feel resentful and sad. Last sunday we had a double header and we sat in the cold drizzle for so long (we are hard core here- if we ran away every time it rained a little we would never get to do anything- the field was fine so we played on) that I was soaked to my underwear! Every layer of clothing I had on, head to toe, was soaking wet. It finally really started to pour so we packed up and went home. June 20th in my wintercoat, soaking wet in a dark gloomy day. Ugh! One of the worst parts is that if you dared to look at the seven day forecast it looked crappy all week too. I think we had 4 days classified as "sunny" from April 21 to June 20. Something happened though and the sun has been coming out. Today was unbelievable- we were outside much of the day including a few hours at the neighborhood pool tonight. We made sandwiches and just hung out. All of the neighbors crawled out from under our rocks and we got to hang out together in the sun and laugh and relax and just soak it all in. I feel 1000 times better. It is crazy to me how far a little sun goes. On the flip side of things my son's baseball team had to practice in the relative heat and they were zonked from it- just not used to it yet. Speaking of baseball, my son made the All Star team for his league so we are all super excited for him. We love baseball! The tradition is that we make pennants for each boy with his name and number and they get hung on the fence at the big tournament. Crafting and baseball and sun- Heaven!
I hope you are sunny in your neck of the woods!
