Lessons in Dancing in the Rain

While most of us run for cover at the first sign of a rainstorm, the average free-spirited 6 year old  runs in the opposite direction - straight into the downpour.  Last night, during a particularly fearsome thunderstorm, my daughter went one better by leading my wife into the front yard with a series of pirouettes, leaps and twirls, belly laughing the whole time.  As adults, we tend to forget how liberating it feels to just follow our instincts - until we witness our children following theirs.
