Eight kids our smallish house were going stir crazy.
Rainy days tend to do that to children.
Unfortunately Miss M wasn't having any fun. Nope. Not a bit. Don't let that look of sheer joy fool you. (My apologies to her parents for her soaking wet sandals - but she was having such a good time!)
Outside we went, in puddle boots, crocs, or whatever footwear we didn't mind getting wet.
Two older children went for a walk in the rain. The six and under crowd went on a mission to find the "best jumping puddles ever!"
Suddenly, a discovery was made. The sounds of splashing erupted from a nearby driveway. There they were-
The Best Jumping Puddles Ever!!!
All jumped out, the children retreated to the house to warm up in a bubble bath, faces beaming from the pure fun of rain play. The tomatoes in the garden appreciated the rain as well.
What a refreshing experience it is to play in the rain!
