Nicaragua has two seasons from what we hear: wet and dry (both of which are "hot"). To prepare for the rainy season, I ordered the kids some rainboots. There was much excitement on Noah's part for the arrival of the rainboots. Well, today (hear the drumroll)...the rainboots arrived!!! We happened to be standing outside when the UPS man stepped out of that magical brown truck that is packed with surprises. Up he walks with the box of rainboots. Noah could hardly contain his excitement. The box was opened, boots tried on...and Noah has been wearing them now for about 3 hours! I love a child's joy over the simple things in life...like rainboots.
