I have been missing the rain lately. It really just doesn't rain enough in Modesto for me. I try to see the positives to this when I think about it...like thinking about not having to drag two kids to the store in the pouring rain and ending up so wet that all my layers of clothing are soaked though. But it doesn't always help because I just like rain. There is just something about it.

It is like a cleansing to my soul. It is relaxing. I love the sound of it. I love the smell of it. I love watching it drip drop on the ground, and on the windows for that matter.

I love how Connor gets excited about the rain as well. Heck, the kid wants the car window open in the rain! I love how Isla scrunches up her face as the rain is falling on her head and face. 

I love how the rain gives me an excuse to go outside and play, then come inside and cuddle up with Connor under a blanket to get warm. 

This rain couldn't have come at a better time. I needed a little soul cleansing. This whole stay at home mom business can get lonely at times. And it's weird for me to say I am lonely when I am not even left alone to pee! But it happens. And having the rain come has been the perfect excuse to change up the routine a little and do things a little different. Like I said, it's good for my soul.
