A Boat Ride in the Rain

It’s a dreary, rainy day on the last day of our lake visit.  My daughters climb into the boat. My youngest giggles:   “It’s raining, Mom!  It’s water above us and below us!  The water is everywhere!”  The boat speeds up. 
“Mom, stick your hand out of the boat.  The waves will give you a high-five.”  I stick my hand out into the wave the boat makes, and sure enough, I’m slapped right back with a wet high-five.  She thinks of the water as having hands.  And with those hands it celebrates with high-fives.

Who cares if it’s raining?
