not to be beaten by the rain!

What a contrast today's weather has been to last week, but I'm determined not to be beaten by the rain. So today we spent the morning making a supply of origami boats to set sail this afternoon in a little stream not too far from home so we could return quickly to hot tea and caramel and hazelnut cake once the boats and us were drenched. The children really enjoyed having boat races and then fishing for the soggy newspaper with their fishing nets (in fact printer paper works far better, but we've run out). And since they were playing in water anyway it really didn't matter that it was pelting it down.
