Storm Watch --- photo courtesy

I don't know about your part of the world, but this is definitely an accurate picture of our skies tonight. We are directly in the middle of a vicious storm warning, and that can only mean summer is here in Missouri... I'm not sure when I crossed the line from being afraid of storms to simply respecting them... I love weather--- snow, rain, all kinds of weather... But naturally, I'm not a fan of severe, hurtful storms... Tonight's is rapidly approaching, and my ever faithful Weatherbug (my little virus, as my son calls it) is chirping hysterically.... 70 mile winds, severe lightning, and even hail... conditions right for tornadoes, as well... Figures.. We planted all our flowers on Tuesday and watered them in again tonight! haha... I just hope no hail beats my little bushes on the face!!! (And no, I am not a gardener... just hate to see my little pansies, lavendars, phlox, and you name its... bruised.

Only five real days of school left, and one movie/picnic day... It seems impossible. We still have a lot to cover, but realistically I'm thinking it isn't going to happen... Not with the fact that kids tend to quit after state testing is over.... (or before if we're not lucky). I will four/fourths miss my kids this summer. I have missed a lot of school lately and I missed them then....

Well, have a wonderful weekend... I'm always ready for the weekend... even though I don't set the world on fire... just a relaxing drive... Happy Mother's Day!

Be safe through all of the storms!

What an incredible photo of lightning.

I know what you mean about the end of the school year. It gets tougher for everybody when you know the end is in sight.

Have a wonderful Mother's Day!
