After spending the weekend sitting in a hot house with gripy kids I decided it was time to call the doctor & ask him about this swimming business.
Today he gave me the go-ahead to get in the pool with the kids. Not exactly to swim- more just to lounge on my floaty and supervise the FarmHands....and then it started raining.
In case you haven't heard, the Midwest (Illinois and Indiana in particular) is in the midst of a drought. I think Husband said we're 15 inches behind on rainfall for the year. All the farmers were thrilled when the ground warmed up enough for them to be in the fields in early March. We heard lots of, "We can get the wheat out & put beans in for a bumper crop," but unfortunately the total lack of rain has put a serious stop to that. In fact, beans planted on time are now baking in the fields.
I pray we get a decent amount of rain soon, even if that means I'm out of the pool for another week or so.
