In the evening on July 4th we had a short rain shower. The sun was shining and there was a rainbow in the sky. (I don’t know if you can tell from the picture or not, but the rainbow originated in the field right beside our house.) I thought it was a perfect time to let my children play in the rain.
My six year old wasn’t quite as sure about getting wet but he soon started having fun as well.
My three year old was even less sure but even he joined in the fun.
My children declared that I was “the best mom ever” and thanked me for letting them have this fun. Memories aren’t made from the stuff we buy or the things we have, but from experiences. I am so glad I had the opportunity to watch my children play in the rain.
