We’ve just had a very wet week-end here. But a little rain wasn’t going to keep anyone inside, and so while I sat down to edit another thesis chapter, Papa took Maus and Cub out for a rainy day adventure.
There are plenty of resources online for how to keep kids busy outside in the rain. […]

Two weeks ago we had an absolutely gorgeous Thanksgiving week-end, with hot, summery weather, and not a cloud in sight! Now the weather has turned much more seasonal, and although it isn’t too cold yet, it is certainly very rainy. Dressing Mausi up in her rainsuit and ducky boots and going out for some “puddle-stomping” […]
