Some Like It Hot

Today it rained again and most of the day the temperature was around 68*F. We were all cold. I was laughing about having goosebumps in August in our non-airconditioned home! Who'd a thunk it?

To keep the kids out of the mud we let them watch 2 movies back to back. We watched Shrek and Shrek 2. The kids were complaining though. They'd rather be outside. The biggest shocker was when Stephen said he wished he could skip the movies and work outside on the milking stanchion he's trying to get a roof on. Stephen has always been a huge tv addict. If it was on, he was there. And never ever complained about what he was watching as long as he got to watch something. Don't get me wrong, he's also very active, but the tv draws him in. I had had a moment of doubt today and prayed for confirmation that we were doing the right thing by being here and got confirmation all day. This was a biggie though. My tv-addicted son who was also the most resistant to moving out here was complaining that he couldn't be outside working on the farm instead of watching movies he enjoys. Praise God!!

But hey, we think the sun'll come out tomorrow! Hopefully the large puddles/lakes in the yard will dry quickly.

Stickin out my chin and grinnin,
Melissa
