The other week we had rain and a lot of it. Afterall, it is wintertime. Eliot says we may have gotten our yearly allotment in that one week. The kids loved getting out their rain gear and I loved it too!
Between puddle jumps and sloshing around we sipped on tea and hot chocolate indoors. It was a nice change from the perpetual sunshine. I probably appreciated the rain so much because it was such a novelty. I knew the sunshine would be back shortly.
Sure enough, the first sunbeam came through the clouds on the Sunday following the rain. The first sunbeam was my future Sunbeam. I can't believe this little guy will be a Sunbeam in one more week. Since then the has rain ceased and it has been sunny and warm ever since.
