Sunshine After the Rain
Rain...and then rain...and more rain. And then, sunshine after the rain, and when the sun came out, so did we. We went out to the strawberry patch to pick some more berries. Those plants had exploded again! Amelia, Joseph, Benjamin and Mathilda were all helping me pick them for a while. Eventually Amelia started squishing all of them and then transferred all of that berry red juice to my pant legs as she held on. It didn't take long for them to become distracted and one by one they wandered away to explore other wonders of nature in our yard. They found a mullberry tree with fruit ready for picking, but quickly moved on to the more inviting mud puddle.
That's part of what summer is about right? Playing in the mud, being stained with berry juice, dancing in the rain puddles.
