I was sitting in my living room while the evening sun poured in through the picture window. I glanced out at the beauty and noticed that it started to rain.
"A sun shower," I exclaimed to my kiddos.
My 5 year old pouted that we couldn't go for our promised walk now.
I told him we can do something better. "Get your boots on, kids and grab your umbrellas! There's probably going to be a rainbow!"
Sure enough, there it was! One of the biggest, brightest rainbows I've ever seen! It visually stretched about 1/4 of a mile. My kiddos were fascinated not only with the rainbow, but with being able to be outside, in their pajamas, with wellies on their feet and umbrellas overhead.
They were upset when the rainbow started fading and imploring it to stay. We had a little science and Bible lesson during this time, and then I ushered them back indoors and into bed before they saw the rainbow "die."
