Looks like you did OK.
I've had some serious misery in rain before. It gets easier with practice.. but after days of continual rain it gets harder and harder to keep stuff dry.
A few tips-
-Definitely get a headlamp. This will allow you to work at night and use both hands.
-Set up when it is light. It sounds like you knew this.. but now you "learned" this.
-In rainy weather I keep a set of dry clothes (mostly for bed/camp ... fleece bottoms, wool socks, and a long sleeved top) and a set of cloths that can get wet, (for hiking, collecting wood, etc) Keep them separate and put your wet clothes back on in the morning if expecting rain.. otherwise you will have two sets of wet clothes and no dry clothes the next night. This is much more important on longer trips when you can't run to town to dry out.
Otherwise.. it looks like you had fun.. and that is the most important thing.
