In case you can't tell, it was not the best weather for a parade.
Luckily, at least for the parade participants, it was an Umbrella Parade!!
Seriously!! Some guy named Matt Lamb started an organization called "Umbrellas for Peace" after 9/11. He travels around the world working with kids to paint umbrellas symbolizing the messages of peace, tolerance, understanding, hope and love. He came to our school last week and every kid in the school painted an umbrella. It is a very cool program.
Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate today. Charlie and I were cold and wet after spending an hour outside, in the rain. At least the parade participants were pretty dry. ;)
