One feature of our home that our kids love, is our built-in sprinkler system. This was not something we particularly wanted, but it’s a blessing. Apparently, rain isn’t too predictable around here, so these may come in handy later.
Believe it or not, on May 31, the day of the last horrible OKC tornado, our kids were outside enjoying those sprinklers. They had been waiting for a really hot day, and with the temperature over 90 degrees, they finally got their wish! We did have to turn them off when a sudden rain shower started, but it only lasted a few minutes. It didn’t at all seem possible that a two-mile wide, record-breaking tornado was only 80 miles away! We are thankful for the Lord’s protection.
Here are some photos of the fun! Lauren didn’t want to get out and play and Matt was too scared, but the middle three had a blast! 🙂
