The girls didn't delay a moment when they saw this opportunity. They rushed into their rain uniforms and out the door. The umbrella was not to prevent them from getting wet, it was to protect them from the hail stones!
We had a blast watching them bounce into the grass, like popcorn. We had rain everyday last week, what a novelty. And on Friday was the rare treat of a half an hour of hail. We even saved a bowl of it in the freezer to show daddy the evidence.
