Last week, as we drove home from swimming lessons one evening, we were driving into the sunshine. To the north of us and behind us (east), we saw ugly tannish-gray storm clouds.
About halfway home, it started to rain lightly. We were still driving directly into the sunshine, so I told the kids that they would have to look for a rainbow as soon as we turned the corner. Max strained in his car seat to turn, and he caught a glimpse of the rainbow. Alex & Jensyn weren’t able to turn enough in their buckles, and they were anxiously waiting to see.
As soon as we turned on to our street, I stopped the car for a few minutes so the kids could admire the rainbow. Jensyn excitedly shrieked, “It’s my VEWY FIRST WAINBOW!!!! It’s sooooo boo-tee-full!!!” (I’m sure she’s seen them before, but she doesn’t recall it!)
Once they had looked for a few minutes, they wanted to hurry home and tell Daddy. We all stood in the driveway (while the rain sprinkled down on us…) and watched as a second rainbow appeared. It’s not very bright in the pictures, but it was very pretty!
