The rain is back!

Hooray! I missed the rain. It smells so good after it rains, and there are lots of puddles to sail walnut shell boats in. I am going to hope that someone eats some walnuts soon so I can save the shells and make them into boats.

Here is a little secret Téodor taught me on how to make a cool walnut shell boat! If you glue little lead fishing sinkers to the bottom with Elmer's glue, the boat has a "keel" and is more balanced! This way you can melt some wax into the bottom of the inside and stand a birthday candle up in it like a mast. Then you can light the candle! I am going to do this tonight before bed.
