It rained today. Not just a few sprinkles, not a violent storm. Just rain. Just a good, soaking rain. Exactly what we needed.

Joey had the marvelous idea of going out to play in it. He played and got plenty wet. But Conner and Micah were too busy try to catch the raindrops to do much playing...
When it was time to go inside, I got everyone cleaned, dried, and dressed in at least undies/diaper. Then they ran off to play in Joey's bedroom while I fixed lunch. A few minutes later, Conner came running into the kitchen, excitedly telling me that they were still cold since they had been wet, but that the Blanket Festival was a great way to warm up. I had to come see:
It was nearly every blanket in the house unfolded...but it was great. That kept them entertained long enough for me to fix lunch and then some! :)

We had a really fun morning, and I couldn't help but have a heightened awareness of our Almighty Creator.

He performs wonders that cannot be fathomed,
miracles that cannot be counted.
He bestows rain on the earth;
he sends water upon the countryside.
--Job 5:9-11

Thank you, Lord for the rain.

What a lovely praise to our Father this post is...for his loving care and the beautiful, healthy, imaginative children that he's given. Thanks for being a praise leader on this occasion!
