The mother promised her daughter she would take her to the swimming pool.
Unfortunately, it started raining and they couldn't go.
The daughter was upset so the mother told her, "Even if I take you, they will not allow you to swim while it is raining."

I, too, would use circling over our house because flying over implies a straight line of flight, and around implies on the same level with the house, which would be too low to be realistic. Circling works well because it imparts the meaning of your circle diagram. To use the word flying is unnecessary in describing the activity of an aircraft. What else would an aircraft be doing, after all?
Your second sentence contains an error. You have an adverb (loudly) modifying a noun (sound). You need the adjective loud. Sounds are never loudly, but they can be very loud.
