And the rain, rain, rain, came down, down, down....

This seems to be our week to finally get some good rains - hooray! It was starting to look like fall, in some ways, with leaves falling off the trees, but it wasn't the right time for that just yet! I noticed the tree in our backyard had some dead leaves on it last week and was thinking about starting to water the yard and tree some, and then the rains began. Yay! This week we have been blessed with MUCH cooler temps and RAIN! Praise God!

Usually when it's been a long time between rains, I like to put in the old Winnie the Pooh movie and take a slow start to our day. Anyone know the one? Where the narrator talks you through the Pooh storybooks and Pooh and Piglet have quite a fright with the rain....

The rain rain rain came down down down
In rushing, rising riv'lets,
'Til the river crept out of it's bed
And crept right into Piglet's!
Poor Piglet, he was frightened,
With quite a rightful fright.
And so, in desperation
A message he did write.
He placed it in a bottle
And it floated out of sight.

Have a great day!

Oh, please send some our way. We need it desperately. It's cloudy and cooler today but I still have to go out and water when I can.

What a lovely way to start a rainy day with your children! My sister, my daughter, and now my grandson all adored those wonderful Pooh stories and movies as small children...
