It's Raining...or NOT~

We have been experiencing some seriously crazy weather lately.  While the rain is a welcome sign this time of year in the sure is putting a damper on plans for the 4th.  How on earth do you plan for this...

Look closely, you can see the rain coming down.

A little closer (this is the front yard/porch side).

Back yard/back porch side-same rain and sunshine!

Totally random...sun shower in the front yard and rain in the back.  I was sitting at my desk in the office looking out front and commented to my youngest in the kitchen, "wow, it is raining again!"  To which I received the reply, "Huh?...not raining here."  She was just 25 feet away in the kitchen on the backside of the house.  Gotta love those pop up summer showers!

Treats she was making at the time to take to "House Church"...she and several other college students (mostly from our home church) get together every Tuesday evening at a local home to talk about God's word.  AWESOME!  We have had the pleasure of hosting, and they are a fun bunch to be around.
Our oldest has finished up her student teaching...all passed summer school.  Yippee! She is now into the interview process for the fall semester.  Please keep her in your prayers.  She is hoping to teach Special Ed, elementary-high school.

If I don't post again beforehand, praying all have a Happy and Safe 4th!  We are expecting more probably a wash out here in the South!

One of my sisters taught special ed before she had her baby in March. She LOVED it! Praying for your daughter during her interview process.

Have a wonderful 4th! :)

LOL I had the same experience today! I was in the dry cleaners and it was sunny, but across the parking lot it was POURING where my car was parked! Will keep your daughter in my thoughts and prayers...what a wonderful career she has chosen!

I hope you have a very happy fourth!!!
