Our area has been blessed with lots of rain this spring and early summer. Just this evening we had about 4 inches in an hour. This is not unusual for this year. Another day we had 6 inches; one day we had 4 inches. We have had many periods of fairly heavy rain storms. But, something we have not had yet, until Saturday, was a gentle warm rain that was good for playing in.
Yes – I am the mother that lets her kids run barefoot in the water running down the sides of the street, getting wet and having a blast. Saturday, they were finally able to do that. They played outside in the rain for an hour or so, having the best time. The giggly girls love to play in the rain like this.
J, the youngest giggly girl, took some time to study the plants and flowers, noticing how beautiful the raindrops looked on the flowers and leaves. We also noticed a spider web. I don’t know what kind of spider it is but we are calling it a zipper spider because its web looks zipped together.
In The Rain – such a fun place to be. There is so much to feel and see and observe. God’s creation and power is so beautiful and we can see it clearly in the rain. Here’s hoping we’ll have some more times where they can play In The Rain. At Home.
