It's raining!

After lots of prayer and waiting and watching it rain all around us, we are getting rain! It started yesterday afternoon. Here's a picture of Samuel wondering why water is falling from the sky. I guess when you're two, no rain for 3 months or so is a long time. Long enough to forget what it is!

The kids played in the rain and got thoroughly soaked. Most of the pictures came out blurry since our children never stay still when they are playing. But here's Clark standing still and letting the rain drench him.

This one is blurry, but it shows the joy of riding a bike in the rain (and Grace hamming it up for the camera).

And now it's time to sleep while the rain falls outside my window. Ahhh, the simple joys of life.

So much fun!!

Praise God for the rain! I will have you know that since my husband and I have taken to reading your blog, we refer to you in daily conversations - as if we know you.

"Hey, wanna go and check out that land? Wonder if the Nelson's caught a foreclosure or just a really good price?"

"Did you see the picture of the Nelson's cow all sutured up? Naw ... didju?"

heh heh
