Anyone who says only sunshine brings happiness, has never danced in the rain~

We had a park day with our friends from R.O.C.K. We always meet at the perennial favorite, Seven Gables, in Wheaton. This time, with rain threatening, I was afraid we'd be the only ones there. Luckily, we had a friend along, so even if no one else showed up, the boys could still enjoy a game of tag. The rain did end up coming, but so did several other families! We homeschoolers are a hearty bunch~
They stopped their (co-ed, multi-aged) game of tag long enough to get some group photos on the awesome climbing structure. Say, "cheese"~
Say, "rain" ~
Say, "homeschooling rocks"~
Say, "enough with the pictures already, lady"~
Here's little John Paul. I started calling him Swee'Pea, because he looked so funny crawling out into the rain while we were ignoring him~
Almost there~
Olive Oyle is none the wiser (Rhonda, I think I see a very clever Halloween costume in your future)~
Of course, Mary enjoyed the rain just as much as the big kids~

And the moms enjoyed a really lovely visit, too :) The rain actually made the park day - we all went home happy and smelling like wet dog!
