It was a gray, rainy day today.  Gentle rain fell steadily from the lowered sky all day and made me feel calm and happy.  The girls and I accomplished several chores that have been at the bottom of the to-do list - like cleaning up the basement.  Feels good to have it all organized again...until the next time the girls go downstairs to play.

I also pulled all of the Fall/Winter clothes out of their storage bins and got them organized onto closet shelves! 

Can I get a WHOOP-WHOOP?  This has got to be the easiest seasonal transition I have ever experienced, clothing-wise.  Normally, it's a huge task that takes me weeks and weeks to complete, but this time, I just walked downstairs, picked up the tubs marked with their sizes, carried the tubs upstairs and filled their shelves.  Of course, I did NOT put away the Summer clothes yet, and I did NOT even attempt to sort through the shoes.

The shoes.  They haunt me when I'm in bed at night, and anyway, the kids' feet have grown so much that it wouldn't do me any good to get rid of the old shoes since they don't have any replacements yet.

We also got back into our school routine: reviewed Angie The A and her little sister and Bobby The B and his little brother.   I told the girls we'd learn all about Casey the C tomorrow, and when Daddy came home, Liberty jumped up and down telling him about the promised lesson on C.  Boy, does that ever make my heart happy!  The child who refused to have anything to do with the alphabet for the first four years of her life can now recognize, write and tell me what each letter says and is BEGGING for more!  I've been writing my own curriculum just to catch Liberty's interest, and it is working!

The laundry is not done.  I suppose I should work on that tomorrow.  I'm sure Jeremy is out of socks by now.

It's been a great Thursday.  I needed a day of rain to wash down the whirring in my brain from this weekend.
