4(ty) Days and 4(ty) Nights

Today is Monday, and it has literally been raining, HARD, for 4 straight days. The worst part about this is that the four days spanned a weekend, which meant that the girls were forced to spend most of this time, indoors, at home. Even though we were able to take an outing to the play area at the mall on Saturday, as well as spend a couple of hours away from home at church on Sunday, we were all feeling a bit claustrophobic by the time we headed outside this morning for the drive to school.

As luck would have it, the rain actually stopped for a couple of hours this morning (giving me the opportunity to get both girls into school without any of us getting soaked). Though she hadn't verbalized the effect the rain was having on her, Ivie's reaction this morning when I opened the garage door said it all. Realizing that she was able to actually walk outside without an umbrella, she stepped onto the driveway and exclaimed, "MOMMY!!!! IT STOPPED RAINING!".

Here in Chapel Hill, we're starting to understand how Noah and his family must have felt after enduring 40 days and 40 nights of non-stop rain. We're 1/10th of the way there...
