If you know me, you know I don’t watch tv, much less the news. So imagine my surprise when I am woken up at 3 am by a frightened 6 year old mumbling something about a storm and lightning… hmmm. So then I lay there, listening, and sure enough there is some serious rain hitting my window, and lightning so bright it looks like it’s daylight for a split second outside, and thunder that I am bewildered that I did not hear before. It’s strange to me that I can manage to hear Dazlynn when she is stirring in her sleep – before she even wakes up and fusses – but this clapping thunder did not phase me whatsoever.
Anyways, it’s been super rainy today, and we love it! We don’t get enough of it around here. That is probably the only thing I miss about North Carolina, is the rain (and snow, but that comes later of course). I started the day of being a stickler for “Don’t step in that puddle” and “Makayla! Get under the umbrella!” But then, I decided – you know what? A little rain never hurt anybody, and it wasn’t cold out (I put them in fleece because well, it was raining, and that stuff dries quickly if they were to get wet while we were out) Soooo anyways, we stayed out for a bit and they played in the rain. More like Jazereigh happily held the umbrella while Makayla splashed thru puddles =)
How cute is this picture?? Love love love it! Too bad I don’t own a colorful umbrella lol.
