After a very dry summer, I have enjoyed the rainy days we have had so far this fall. There is something very peaceful about a drizzling rain as it replenishes the ground and brings life back into our plants and grass. It is the best weather to curl up with a good book and a hot cup of tea (or coffee, whatever your preference :) On one of our recent rainy days, Isaac decided he had had enough of staying inside and shot out the front door as soon as it was opened. We decided to go ahead and let him play. It was his first time playing in the rain and he easily found a small water puddle on our front stoop. He absolutely loved it. It was precious to see him with his face towards the sky and his eyelids blinking as he experienced the water hitting his face. It is the simple things in life that sometimes brings the most joy.
