Play Day

A rainy day can be so much fun with a four year old......Jordan spent the day.......of course, we splashed through puddles.  By the time his Nana picked him up, he was covered in mud.....but she was an awfully good sport about it.  

Jordan's favorite rainy day sport is to ask you to stand under low hanging branches so he can take your picture, then he yanks on the branch and you get drenched........we played this one many times today.

It is good for the soul to spend the day in play, not adult play (which that is fun too) but child's play.
Child's play is no worry about what you have on, no worry about how you look, the rules are made up as you go.......and can change on a dime.  There is much laughter, quite a bit of silliness, sometimes a scrapped knee or bruise and lots of running.  You eat when you are hungry, drink when you are thirsty......and popsicles are a food group.

I feel as though I have been on a wonderful vacation......after Jordan left, our friend Joe dropped by, and we wrote a new song.  WOW!  what a wonderful, fun day.......child's play and adult play.
