It seems that, on the school run at least, rain is the enemy. Well, only for the adults though.
Most parents can be found hurrying their children from the car, or along the road, with cries of “hurry up!” and “come on I’m getting soaked here!”.
Children on the other hand, delight in the rain. Turning faces skyward to ‘drink’ the water, taking an impromptu shower or the favourite, for those with or without wellies, seeking out the deepest puddle!
It’s always amusing to watch the tug of war between parents and children, if only to laugh along with those parents who encourage and join in with the puddle jumping….
