Bring on the rain!

According to the weatherman, in Oklahoma we're officially out of the drought. The small pond that is our driveway gave us our first clue.
What bugs Daddy delights E!

Splashing Mom is WAY fun! This game had to be stopped out of respect for the camera's wetness preferences.
If you are asking yourself, "That's a threatening look, did she really jump?"
Yep. Lots.

I am amazingly blessed!

Great pics! And what a great idea! We jump in puddles but never off of a step! We may have to do that tomorrow if there are still puddles! (are we expecting more rain tomorrow?)

Cute! I laughed when I read your comment about Bon Jovi on my blog. So funny, but so true! Ouch to the bump on your daughter's head. Have you ever used Traumeel cream on your kids? I use it on myself too as I get bumps and bruises playing soccer. It is AMAZING how it takes down swelling and bruising. It has arnica and other ingredients in it that are homeopathic remedies. I won't keep going on about it in case you are already familiar.

Thos are fantastic pictures! J-man would be right with her, too.

The "Skittles" chart? That's a fun name for it - especially since I found some "warning" charts with sesame street characters on them. *LOL* But my levels of warning had not achieved "Bert" levels yet...though I did think about collecting bottle caps and feeding pigeons.

Hi there: here is a site with a bit of a description of Traumeel:

It looks like they sell it there, but I just gave you that as it had a little info. I buy it at the health food store- it goes a long ways. Don't use it on open cuts, scrapes as it stings. I take the tablets when I play a lot of soccer, etc and notice a big difference in soreness, swelling. My littlest doesn't like the tablets as they are kinda chalky. When he has a big bump and scrape,(then I can't put the cream on) I have arnica homeopathic granules that I give him orally. They are little and sweet, so he takes them. They do the same things as Traumeel ( arnica is an ingredient in that brand.) I have done childbirth with arnica and without, and had way less swelling and bruising when i did use it. Way less. Can you tell I like the stuff?
