Ezra brought home a book about weather watching, and it had instructions for making your own rain gauge and chart, we had to do it immediately.  Truth is I’ve wanted a rain gauge for awhile anyway.  It was pretty special when it rained the next day and Ezra called Grandpa Mike to find out how much rain they got on the farm (a conversation my dad & I have had many times), here he is telling Grandpa all about his chart and gauge:)

Love that gappy, “real” smile . . .

Really enjoyed this post, as I’ve loved everything about weather watching since an 8th grade class where we set up/ran a weather station for 8 weeks. Then I “got into’ looking at clouds and identifying them and have always loved learning along with my boys when they do a weather unit/project at school. And Caleb has loved learning about lightening, tornadoes, hurricanes…all the stormy weather, I guess!
