As 3pm looms I always check in with the weather forecast so that I can prepare for the daily school run. On days like today when heavy rain is forecast I have to ensure we are all appropriately dressed in our waterproofs.
Luckily the older ones we collect from school either love jumping in puddles if they have their wellies on or enjoy jumping in the hedges to avoid the spray from passing cars, whilst the rain seems to have a very calming effect on the younger ones in the buggy as they inevitably fall asleep under the rain cover in the buggy, like they did today. I think it’s just me that objects to getting so wet!
Of course the average British summer can mean we do school runs in glorious sunshine one day and drizzle, heavy rain, thunder or gusty winds the next so we just have to be prepared!
