Tuesdays Unwrapped.

On the way home from running errands yesterday, we were rushing to get inside and unpack groceries make lunch and clean up said lunch and get down for a nap and I still had 4,000 things to get done while the kids were napping and we were just generally in a hurry. After I got Charlie out of the car I turned around and found Ella in the front yard, dancing in the rain. She was twirling around and around, sticking out her tongue to catch raindrops on it. She was in her own little world and was having so much fun. And I stopped. And slowed down.

I love this. I found myself caught in the rain in the Home Depot parking lot yesterday. I almost started to run...but then I stopped and walked slowly instead. It was nice to have a moment like a little girl again. Thanks for sharing these photos!

They are so precious. Thank you for sharing the innocence of a little girl playing in the rain. I miss those times.

I want to play in the rain, too! I think Ella had the right idea.

When my daughter was very young, I let her play in a warm spring rain. My outraged grandmother said, "Aren't you going to make her come in?" Ah, no. I'm going to play with her.
