It has been extra hot, for what seems like ages. I am going to share a couple of pictures from when it rained for ten minutes, two weeks ago. Yes, in the desert we have to record our memories of rain and then relive them from time to time.
When it rained, only Emilee and Ally were home. They aren't little kids anymore, but they ran and played in the rain with childlike delight. I did what any mom would do when her babies are playing in the rain....I got a camera.
It was fun to watch them play. Unlike when they were little, I could let them run in the street if they wanted to...and they wanted to.
Oh, and I could let them fight without intervening. I used to think they would outgrow this need to fight, but I was wrong. Thankfully their goal is to annoy and entertain, rather than to harm.
Now I have relived the rain, and I feel better.
