As you come to him, the living Stone--rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him--you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2: 4-5

You early childhood types will appreciate my own version of the opening lines of the classic Dr. Seuss book, The Cat in the Hat. (And yes, I did rewrite it from memory, thank you very much!)

The sun did not shine. It was too wet to play. So we sat in the house... All that warm warm, wet day. I sat there with Hasnnah. We sat there, we two. ... And we sat there and wondered, "What can we do?" Too wet to ride bikes. And too wet to play ball. So we sat in the house. We did nothing at all...

Until Hannah started crying that she was bored and "Please play with me!"

It has been raining for days. It has been pouring all day. So that stranded us inside, as it was even too wet to go anywhere and lug the kids in and out of the car. So housebound--and without brothers, sisters, or Daddy to play with--we were. What fun. :)

We played countless games of Backyardigans on the computer.

And then printed out our pictures to color. One of Hannah's favorite things is to take paper out of the printer when you are printing something. She will run from anywhere in the house to come and "help you" when she hears the printer.
And after 5.7 seconds, when we got bored coloring, we turned our paper over and traced our hands. Hannah actually did this all by herself...I was quite impressed, as she usually shows no interest in anything paper/pencil related!

Of course, all this was done one handed until about 12:30 because this cute little burrito refused to stay in her bed longer than 5.7 seconds without making frantic goat noises.

After I changed her out of her too cute outfit and into a warm fuzzy sleeper and swaddled her, she slept for longer, and we were able to have even more fun! We played school with this book--learning all about how different animals sleep. Hannah remembered her new word--hibernate--and I sorta felt like a homeschooling mom there for a minute!
And we also watched this movie...twice. Now, she only likes the first thirty minutes of it, but still....

We are ready for the sun to come out and for our sisters to come home!!!
