Maybe I'm strange but I love when my kids get to play in the rain (sans the thunder and lightening).
There is something just so refreshing...renewing about it. About 20 minutes before it began to pour they were sitting at the dinning room table just plain frustrated. Math does that to you sometimes.
I sent them out, one of the many beauties of homeschooling. I know when my kids brains shut off.
Ya know I've heard kickball has cured many any ailment. It does wonders for mathitis (wink wink).
