It rained all day today. This hasn't happened in months! Katrina loved the rain, thrilled to feel drops on her hands.
And, courtesy of our lack of landscaping, she loved the puddles in the backyard.
They all loved it.
Usually I don't put much stake in the poignancy of children's thoughts (since around here they mostly have to do with bodily emissions), but there was no denying this one: Julian said that the clouds moving in the sky look like the ocean.
Rain and clouds aren't things we see a lot of around here, and they're welcome.
