No such thing as bad weather
We are determined to embrace the view that there is no such thing as bad weather.
All weather is good weather, and we plan to be out in it.
Last week, our resolve was tested.
On our first day, it was 36°. That is pretty hot.
But the garden is shady, and we were ok. We let the children choose whether to be in or out, and most of them chose to be out.
The next day, it rained.
We let the children decide whether to be in or out, and most of them chose to go in. Two hardy souls stayed out. We talked about where the rain came from.
Then there was thunder. I decided discretion was the better part of valour and we went inside.
We did not turn the lights on, even when the sky filled with dark grey clouds and it got really dark.
We watched the rain spatter the windows, and pour over the gutters.
