soggy football

So we just set records for the hottest and driest summer on record in Kansas.
It was so hot and so dry.
I know this isn't a popular opinion, but I loved the heat.
I really, really loved the heat.  Mitch says it's because I don't work outside.  Probably true.

Well, our drought just came to a screaching halt this weekend.
It's been raining since late Saturday morning.
And it's cold.











We really, really need the rain and I'm so thankful for it.
But it would have been nice to have the rain after dark on Saturday.
We endured enjoyed Eli's football game in a downpour.
The boys loved it!  They played so good and won 38-0.  That's right, a shut out.
I realized this weekend I need a bigger umbrella. 
Even though I had an umbrella, I was soaked from head to toe when the game was over. 
Maybe I'm wider than the average umbrella :)  (Funny when I say it; hurtful when you say it.)
Something like this ought to cover me.
A serious football mom should have a REAL umbrella, don't you think?


















I'm pretty sure this football was floating when the game was over.













I know this rain is a wonderful blessing from God.  It truly is refreshing. 
More refreshing when I'm inside looking out than when I'm sitting outside in puddles, however.

And it's much better being inside when trying to keep stats. ; )
