You could tell she was proud of herself...and I was oh, so proud of my girl. She was scared, but brave and handled it so well. Yes, I was a very proud mama yesterday. Especially when we got home & she was showing off where she got kicked during a "play" And, informing me that you can in fact touch the ball with your hands when you throw it back inbounds. Pretty cute.
Wednesday afternoon Layla and I decided to put on rain boots, take umbrellas and walk to get Ava. It seemed that most of the rain storms were gone. I was regretting this decision as we first started going and realized it was raining harder than I thought and blowing, which makes it a little difficult for carrying umbrellas. (And, a stuffed robin in Layla's case...she wanted to get her worms) We pushed through, made it to the school a little wet, but it was all worth it because after we left the school with Ava, the rain had blown over and the sunshine was out in full force. It was one of those great walks after the rain where everything smells really fresh, there were perfect puddles for jumping in and lots of worms for the girls to examine. Or to bury as the girls are doing here...they didn't want it to dry out in the sun so they buried it.
My girls already have a head start on the weekend plans, outside playing in the backyard...I must go join in the fun.
