Due to the thunder we heard rumbling in the distance, the kids and I vacated the pool and headed inside. Jacob spent some time working on his various projects. May I present "Mario World". The kids decided to take a break from projects and we sat down to play a game of Uno. As soon as we began our game the rain began to fall. This is not a gentle rain. I think it would fall into the gully washer category. We need the rain, but I wish it would fall a little more gently. It is going to wash away all the grass seed we put out on Sunday. I am thinking we might need more gutters on the back of the house. At least with all the rain we can see where we need to put the drainage for the new landscaping. There is a silver lining.
