There is a bright thing in the sky that makes us squint

I think some people call it the Sun. It is really hot and bright. I hope it doesn't hurt us. It has made all the rain stop falling out of the sky and finally dried all of our laundry!!!
It did not show it's face until after 12:00 today. I hope it goes away tonight. It will be really hard to sleep with that bright thing shinning on us.
