Here comes the sun...

Although we still have a couple days left of official summer, the weather is feeling & looking more like fall every day. And with fall in the Pacific NW, you never know what kind of weather you're gonna get, even on the same day: rain, sun, rain/sun mixed, all clouds, etc.

The other day was a perfect example of this. We woke up to clouds & overcast skies, but then partway through the day, the sun came out. Then the clouds took over again, and no more sun.

So Kyra & I are playing in her room, and the sun goes behind a cloud. She looks outside, looks at me, and says in a very demanding voice, "Sun back on, Mommy!", as if I had the magic ability to turn the sun off & on. I said, "Oh, honey. You'll have to talk to Jesus about that. He's the one that controls the sun, not Mommy." That seemed to satisfy her, and soon enough, the sun came back out, and she gleefully shouted, "Oh look!!!! Sun back on!"

Loving the simple things in life,
