You snooze, you lose
Christmas season is our favorite around here, but monsoon season is a close second. The stunning lightning shows and falling asleep to the sound of rain pouring down is something we look forward to all year long. It usually rolls in during the evenings, but this morning we woke up to cloud cover and a good healthy pour. Kylie and Jayden have decided they are teenagers and will sleep half the day away if I'd let them, but Maddox and Ryder are up like clock work at 6:35am and were so excited that they got to play in the rain. I was forbidden from singing, "rain, rain go away" because Maddox was worried the rain would hear. He also got a balloon and funnel to collect the rain so that he could keep it with him always and forever. Kylie and Jayden were so disappointed when they woke up 3 hours later to blue skies. You snooze, you lose. (Personally, I wouldn't have minded an extra 3hrs of sleep, but that's just me).
