Sometime, you make a promise, and Mother Nature vetoes it…
On Monday, Angel really wanted to stay at school for lunch. That’s not usually a problem, but this week picking her up late would have been difficult.
“Tell you what,” I said. “Come home for lunch, and we’ll go play in the sprinkler right after.” It was 70F by 8 am, and the forecast rain wasn’t supposed to arrive until evening.
On the way home from school at 11:30, the first fat raindrops splashed on the windshield.
“It’ll stop.” She said, with the confidence of a girl who was not about to let her plans get ruined.
It didn’t. Her lip trembled. We were approaching a Nuclear Meltdown…
Think fast, Grandmom!
“Go put on your swimsuits,” I told them. “We’re having an indoor pool party!”
The blue beach towels were spread out in the floor to be Swimming Pools. (Angel’s idea)
I blew up the beach ball. (Niko’s idea)
(Thursday was their last day of school for the year…let the REAL Adventures begin!)
