and because I love thunderstorms, I am using my position as mom to foster this love in my children. So, tonight, the rain was coming straight down, and I could open the windows and doors without getting everything all wet. My favorite kind of thunderstorm.
I opened all the blinds, turned off all the lights, and Broder and Sunny and I sat down on the couch to watch the show. We have lots of windows in the living room, so this works out well.
It was a long thunderstorm, and after a while, the kidlets stopped their chatter and just sat.
When it was all over, I got up, found my camera, and captured the picture below.
