Singing in the Rain

When Addy was here on Monday it started raining in the afternoon. She started asking if I had an umbrella for her. I wish I would have recorded her saying umbrella. It was something like umbuella or umbebella. So darn cute. When we went to the garage and found this one she wondered if I had something smaller for her. Sadly no but she managed to navigate with the big one.

JJ and mommy watched Addy and the progress on the shop from under cover.

We were hoping for another dry day today but alas it is raining. Dear will have to navigate the last 4 huge beams into their holes in the rain and then hope to get the concrete delivered tomorrow morning during a dry period, if possible.

And, in other news, our kids have spotted a bear on their property and lots of evidence that the bear is enjoying the apples from their apple tree. It also tried to get into one of their out buildings. YIKES! Just another day in the country… Thankfully this is the largest wild animal we have seen on our property. She was really staring us down as if she owned the property and wondered what we were doing on it. We were behind the slider.

Gleaned from my morning readings from Piper this time, Life As A Vapor:

Don’t be duped by the gurus of the age. 

One enslaving fad follows another.

The wisdom of this age is folly in view of eternity.

Don’t follow a defeated foe. Follow Christ. It is costly. You will be an exile in this age. But you will be free.

  1. So cute seeing Addy under the large umbrella. I’m a little jealous as we need rain badly. I do hope it clears for the pouring of concrete! Yikes, a bear trying to get inside! That is something to pay attention to.

  2. I absolutely love the early language stage of young children! So precious to hear their pronunciations and also their created words. i was always a wee bit sad when they self-corrected a favorite mispronunciation. 😉

    Whatever it’s called, Addy looks darling with her umbrella!!

    Hope you have enough dry hours to get the needed work done.

  3. Love the umbebella!! Evy has been coming here with her unicorn umbrella! It had to be opened between the car parked in front of the house to the door. =)

  4. Addy is learning young how nice it is to walk in the rain with an umbrella. I walk with one of those huge golf ones!
    Fantastic shot of the deer!!!
