Summer Rain

We had the best of times the other day when it was pouring down! The kids got immediately naked, ran and jumped around on the yard shouting “nakupelle” (a commonly used kids word in Finnish that translates into ‘naked clown’), and then collected the water coming down the drain in buckets throwing it on themselves and each other. It was also used to “wash the lawn” and then scrubbed it with a rake and a brush.

I felt like joining in but as I am a bit conscious of having good neighbour relations, I kept my clothes on. Instead I sat with a hot cuppa on the porch watching this show that was better than any tv-programme.

As nude pics of my kids will never appear on line, you’ll have to imagine the wonders of the rain with a picture from last autumn. That time my daughter took a chair and watched the heavy rain in amazement for a good while after initially having performed her rain danceImage



  1. Yup! This is the post for me! I love to sit and watch the rain – and yes, if not for neighbors, my friends and I would dance around naked in it! 🙂
