RainIt has been raining on and off most of the morning today. Thunderstorms have been rumbling through too. The house is dark, but everyone is enjoying it.

Adrian and Megan have forts in the living room to do school work under. Mark is trying to finish his math because he was bribed with hot chocolate and candy cane straws. Andrea is watching apples simmer while working on English. Audrey has changed clothes a few times already because she is playing in the rain between lessons.

I am helping with school work, monitoring apples cooking, doing chores and taking time to experiment with rain pictures. This afternoon, once school work is done, everyone will have more time to work on individual interests.
