It's not always rainbows and butterflies...

...but tonight it WAS!

We just had the BEST thunderstorm. Hail the size of marbles, thunder, lightening, lights flickering, leaves stuck to the windows, trees almost falling over...ohhh it was juicy! and marvelous! Then...THEN (ok, I was excited) Dad calls and tells us to look out the window. Lo and behold, there was a huge rainbow. A full arc. Bright, colourful, distinctly roygbiv, and so lovely. Wonderful. Just...wonderful.

I called Lydia (a close family friend, neighbour and the kindergarten teacher I help) to tell her about it. We are doing a rainbow unit in kindergarten next week, so it was fitting. As is the picture of a rainbow that one of the kindie kiddies drew for me on Monday.

I'd just like to say that I love when things that have the potential to be wickedly awkward, turn out to be quite lovely. It makes me smile. A whole lot. :o)
