It rained constantly yesterday. The rain and the wind took many of the beautiful leaves from the trees and with them covered the ground. The sun came out today and dried the rain from them. By late afternoon a steady flow of children with rakes filled the park across from the The House on Grant.
Yesterday Kate and Olivia took every opportunity to jump and hop and splash in every puddle they could find. Today they jumped and ran and giggled at the crunching they heard under their feet. Few things are far more glorious than hearing children laughing and giggling and simply enjoying the world their Heavenly Father created for them ... no matter what the conditions of the day.
Fort Leavenworth ... not what I thought it would be ... definitely harder challenges than I expected ... but I am learning so much and feeling more at home every single day.
