Rain Rain Go Away Giveaway Hop


Welcome to the Rain Rain Go Away Giveaway Hop, hosted by The Kids Did It and The Mommy Island.

When I was a little girl, my grandmother taught me the rhyme:

Rain, rain go away
Come back another day!

I’ve always wondered if the rain ever shouted back: “I DID!”

My grandmother has been gone a long time now, but I still remember those childhood Saturdays with her. She always made me chicken soup, and I loved the “drowned chicken” from the soup pot. To this day, I still love chicken drumsticks because of those Saturdays.

There’s also a more recent April showers rhyme. In school, they used to tell us that “April showers bring May flowers.”

But the version I remember is: “If April showers bring May flowers, then what do May flowers bring?”

The answer, of course, is “Pilgrims”.

And if you are searching for something to do while those April showers are raining down, fill in the rafflecopter for your choice of a $10 Gift Card from Amazon or B&N, or a $10 Book from The Book Depository.
