It's Raining, It's Pouring.....

....The Old Man is Snoring!  Ever sing that as a child?  I remember my mother waking me up on rainy mornings with that song.

Unfortunately, we haven't been able to sing that song around here this summer.  The extremely hot dry days for the last couple of months have worn on everyone.  Coming from a family of farmers, we feel the worry and stress of this summer as our families watch their crops with worried brows.

This morning the kids were in for a treat when they woke was raining!  Not just a drizzle, or the sound of thunder from a cloud that doesn't roll over our house, but big, fat raindrops were falling.  It was like a new snow.   The little Hills quickly put on their rain gear and ran outside to run in the puddles.  What a fun treat after so many hot dry days!  The crops are too far gone for it to make any difference, but the rain helps our pastures grow and brings smiles to our faces!

Happy Rainy Day!!
