We are in a rainy spell here in central NC. While my sky blanket looks like a return to winter, there really have been a lot of good things.

Today, whenever the rain breaks, the kids will escape outside, leaving experiments, LEGO builds, coloring wherever it was the moment the last few drops were falling.

Lots of mud races and mud contests. And laundry.

And many more of cooler weather’s warming dinners like meatloaf, casseroles, BBQ, and soups.

I am always grateful for rain. Even when I grow tired of it, I am grateful.
