beachin in the rain

"Life isn't about how to survive the storm, but how to dance in the rain."

My carefree days are numbered..days of deciding what to do as we like, playing whatever we want, crafting, singing, imagining... in fact I have only about 5 weeks until it hits. BIG School that is. And my whole world and routine is going to have to change.
She is totally excited about the whole thing.. the uniform, friends she knows, joining the trumpet club (?)... but for me this signals a massive change in my fairly cruisy days. And so with daddy off for two weeks, I am going to make the most of doing little things that will no doubt fall by the way side for awhile until I catch up with my life and school kid :)

For the last three days its rained here and its beautiful. Making the most of the moment, I took Jumeirah for a walk in the rain on the beach two days in a row and she absolutely loved it. Unsure at first, the beach is totally different when its wet and stormy, she wasnt sure about going near the pounding surf. But the second day, she skipped and pranced and giggled her way down the beach. Umbrella was dumped about 30 seconds into the walk :)

We chatted about nothing and lots of things. Collected rocks ( for painting tomorrow). Chased crabs. Sang. Jumped. FLEW.

It was such a lovely time, just me and my big girl.
