Dear Mr. Weatherman,

I would like to apologize for accusing you of torture. While I did feel you were taunting me with your forecast of rain, I forgot the most important thing.

Accuracy is not your middle name.

My fellow third grade teachers and I listened to your advice. We frantically threw together some indoor activities before school to use "when" it started to rain again.

Then we decided to quickly start field day...being as we were not going to see the sun we figured it would be a good idea to use the slight break in the weather.

Did I mention that it was a bit warmer than you forecasted once the sun came out?

I didn't bother with sunscreen with the whole, "It will be cool because you will not see the sun" thing. Good thing my makeup has a little SPF in there! Despite your forecasts we have not had any liquid sunshine since yesterday morning. That is quite a feat!

So, thank you Mr. Weatherman for a perfect field day.

The water balloon toss and popsicles were the perfect way to cool off when the sun decided not to listen to your forecast and shine down on us. Our students declared the event the best thing about third grade. Maybe next year we'll invite you to join us for the BBQ lunch after...our parents make a mean cheeseburger!

Now about hurricane season...

I'm glad it went so well! Sunshiny field days are the best.
