We have had a LOT of rain in Louisiana in recent weeks. (And we’ve had a lot of heat too!) And while I’m very glad for the green grass we’ve actually got right now, (though my FIL may not be, considering he’s mowed twice in a week) it’s put a bit of a damper on summer activities. Like going to the pool or even driving to Baton Rouge to go bowling since you take your life in your hands with rainy Baton Rouge traffic, especially with the storms we’ve had.
Thankfully Caleb has a good friend, Kailyn, who is also his age and grade, and an “only” kid, and they play great together. She came over yesterday while her mom, a teacher, had school stuff to do to get ready for the impending school year.
This is what we found in the living room.
No, do not adjust your computer monitors. Though it may look like a bad version of Hoarders, it’s really a fort they created. (And I find it sadly ironic that those plastic bags in the corner are all school supplies my MIL brought home for them. Fifth grade orientation is on Monday!)
And before you get all extremely impressed about their creativity and ingenuity and ability to entertain themselves, please note the shiny glowing laptop screen in their kid cave. Yeah, they’re watching videos online. It’s the modern version of the kid fort. Kinda like the treehouse with air-conditioning.
And they posted Sammy the dog as the bouncer.
“No more pictures please.”
Guess I’ll go watch the rain.
What do your kids do to stay entertained when it rains?
