Rain!



I LOVE the rain! Ever since I was a child there has been something magical about rain that can put me in a good mood no matter what is going on. Right now I have all of the doors and windows open so I can see, smell, listen to it wherever I am in the house.

I assume this has something to do with growing up in the desert;) I am pretty sure most of my friends, siblings, and children feel the same way. So here in AZ, on rainy days, everyone you run into is in a good mood. Unless you are here for 3 days only visiting from Seattle;) Of course this is just my very broad assumption. Am I right?





Mitchell has water day at school today. I am pretty sure they weren't expecting this much water! I love his school and their big water day production. When the girls went there I always volunteered for water day and everyone had a blast. Just two days ago I was feeling sorry for the kids and adult volunteers at water day because it would be so stinkin' hot! Who knew how wrong I would be? Well, other than all of the weather forecasters and everyone who paid attention to them;)



( I wish I could work my scanner. I have some really cute pics of me and my sisters playing in the rain as kids:)

6 people know I love comments!:

Yes, us desert dwellers like nothing better than a good sprinkle--except maybe a good torrent--or a good thunder storm . . .

I agree I love the rain! Which makes Seattle a dangerous place for me! I love to curl up in bed and read a good book as I listen to the rain...which I did pretty much every day during Kimball's naps the first week I was here! Then all the boxes started to bug me. Now, I still love the rain, but work through it. I do miss the lightening and thunder storms though! Seattle rain is usually just a misty rain, like you are in a cloud. It clears up about half way through the day. But, I love how fresh everything is after the rain. I hope I never get used to it!

Love the rain too. We don't get much here in Texas either. Sorry you are feeling so crappy with this pg. I so feel your pain! Here is to a quick pregnancy.

Love the rain! When I was little, I used to float the popsicle rafts down the gutter. I'm such a loser! I wanted to post about it, but I didn't have tine to take pics. It hailed at my house. It was crazy!
