A Boy and A Hurricane

Well, we are still getting torrential downpours from this horribly SLOW moving hurricane! However, we are some of the more lucky ones. We lost Little Mister's water-wall and had some slight damage to our kitchen. I just wish the rain would stop! Flooding continues and I pray for those who are suffering!

My family rode out the storm at my mom's house. She is disabled so, it was easier for us to pack and go to her than to move all her needs and supplies to our house. Now, imagine 4 people in a small apartment, stuck inside for 2 whole days with no power!!! Augh! Little Mister was bouncing off the walls (along with Big Mister...)!

On the first morning, we tried to spend as much time as possible outside between bouts of rain. This, of course, did not last long before the bands actually started to move in. We made the most of the time we had and Little Mister played hard! My goal was to try and wear him out so he would sleep through the worst part of the storm. We kept him moving with a bag, a frog and snowballs!

  3. Thanks He is terrified of bad weather so I was super concerned how he would handle it. But he did great, all things considered.
