We went to Toys-R-Us (yes they have one here... in fact, this is a chain that has been in every country that we have lived ~ some stores better than others!) yesterday and I told the girls they could pick out a "goodie" as they have been such great little girls! They selected raincoats. Normally I would object under the current circumstances... think drought... but they were marked down from 20$ to 6$... so who am I to pass up such a bargain????? We are now the proud owners of Buzz Lightyear and Nemo raincoats... both size 4-6... so plenty of growing room for when we move back to a wet climate.
Funny thing, this afternoon, the weather went from very warm to chilly in a matter of minutes. The wind was whistling and the sky grew dark. The girls were in their raincoats and gum boots so fast ~ both counting their chickens before they hatched... so excited about all the rainy fun they were about to have. Poor girls... the eggs never hatched... the rain never came; however, they did have a bit of fun all dressed up just looking at the big rain cloud!
