Rainy Day Observation Walk
We finally have rain!!!
This morning, we went for an observation walk in the rain.
We tasted the rain by sticking our tongues out and turning our faces to the sky.
We closed our eyes and felt the rain on our cheeks and palms.
We stopped and stood still and listened to the rain pitter patter on the street, sidewalk, grass, trees and plants around us.
We watched the rain fall into puddles and raced leaves and seed pods down the street water runoff.
We smelled the rain... both in the air and on the different plants and flowers around us.
The photo shows some of the things we picked up and will continue to observe today.
