I felt kind of special today... It actually rained most of the day here, and at times it actually rained kind of hard. Most of the time it wasn't very hard at all, though. Unfortunately it doesn't look like it will rain tomorrow, but that's okay, we have some things to do and the rain would make some of them a little more difficult.
We took the girls to school today, and we still walked, and they got to wear their rubber rain boots. They were pretty excited to do that. What I found out later was that the school administrators truly considered closing the school down today, just because of the rain. "There is a concern for the standing water caused by poor drainage." I just kind of felt numb when I heard that. Now I know the folks in So. Cal have a slanted view of the world and reality, but come on, a little rain and you shut down the school? Fortunately, there are enough people around that over road that line of thinking.
No problems with the van today, as we did take it out for a short spin, and went over to Balboa. There was a Christmas luncheon today, put on by the ASYMCA (Armed Services YMCA), and the kids who registered received some gifts, along with the lunch. Stacy and Jackie both got to pick out a little something and were very happy with what they got (Stacy a very nice Barbie Doll and Jackie wanted a Play Dough set). I'll post a few photos of the event, like Jason with Santa, tomorrow. A little later in the day we took them to a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese. It was one of the girls in Stacy's Kindergarten class. We got there at about 16:00 (4pm) and left at around 19:30 (7:30pm).
Tomorrow we hope to have a nice relaxed day, and should be able to stay dry. Thank you for all the continued support and prayers. Take care and stay positive.
