Spring...finally...or is it Summer?

We just had our first "summer" storm. You know the kind...they come up suddenly and are gone nearly as fast. I spontaneously told the boys to get their shoes on and head outside. I grabbed my camera and captured a few minutes of memories....a hard storm moving through...lots of wind and rain and thunder....then it got lighter....then heavier again.

Slowly the rain stopped and the sun began to peek through. At one point I looked up and half the sky was blue with light, puffy clouds. The other half was gray and stormy.

That's kind of where we're at as a family. The hard, blinding rain has passed. We've not forgotten the storm clouds, for they linger...but the sun is shining and we're dancing in the rain.
