Yesterday was certainly very entertaining for us.  Actually I guess the entertainment started Sunday evening when Cain fell on our neighbors asphalt driveway while chasing after a football.  He tripped  and caught himself with his hands but ended up falling face first over the football and had his first run-in with asphalt.

He also busted the inside of his lip and had a mouthful of blood.  Poor little guy!  I'm sure we will have plenty of people ask us about this while he is in the hospital this week.

Yesterday we woke up to a very rainy day.  It was eerily reminiscent of the rain last year when the floods occurred.  We kept a very close eye on our creek and when it looked like this we decided to pack a bag and move a few things up higher.

Thankfully we had a break in the rain and the creek water went down fast.  And yes, that is our very muddy back yard.  Hopefully we can get some grass planted/growing now that we are back home.

While the rain was pouring down, we had plumbers at the house trying to figure out why one of our commodes wasn't working.  The plumbers figured out what our problem was and all I can say is Cain must have wanted to see if one of his trains could swim!! That little rascal put Charlie (one of Thomas the Trains friends) in the toilet when I wasn't looking.

And two hours later Charlie the Train finally emerges!  I guess he could swim after all.

The good thing is that all the entertainment helped keep my mind off of Cain's upcoming cath.

Awww, poor Cain!! and poor Mom!
LOL about the toilet. We had a similar incident with plastic blocks when Micheal was about Cain's age. What is it about flushing toys?!?
