The last nice rainfall we had was back in May. It was wonderful to wake up to everything wet this morning! I was all ready to start our tighter schedule, when it started to rain again. I love to sit on our back porch and just watch and listen so I said, "Just five minutes!"
The 5 minutes turned into half an hour of playing in the rain! Benjamin started by jumping in the puddles (always fun!) but Emily had a much more clever way of getting wet - collect rain water that is coming down the eaves into bowls and pour it over your head! LOL
Poor Fern was so sad that she had to stay inside. :0(
Thirty minutes passed by quickly and then everyone got dried off and changed. I made hot chocolate and we nibbled on gingerbread crisp cookies while I read some "rainy day" poems. See, it was an educational morning afterall. ;0)
I heard "This is the best day ever!" about 100 times so that is always nice!! I LOVE rainy days!
