Being that these plants like it more dry than wet should I worry about all this rain I am getting? They like sun should I help them?

I wouldn't move them. Or help them, oregano and Rosemary can handle the water/rain as long as it keeps draining. My oregano lived 2 yrs in a wading pool that had a hole in the bottom- the dirt was mounded, but the pool drained slowly. Same for Rosemary- but mine are in partial shade at different times of day. I haven't found a lavender I can grow tho. They stay too finicky and just don't make it.

So many roads to take, choices to make, and laughs to share!

I agree with Kat. As long as there is good drainage in the pot they should be ok. We are prone to spring deluges here, too.
