A surprise on Tuesday morning....

I was trying to encourage my son early Tuesday morning. Trying to get him dressed and ready to go. I looked to the east, out the window, through the bare branched trees to find the sky doing it's conversion to blue from black. The clouds were a strong pinkish orange. I told my son to come and look at the sky. I said if we hurry, we get to see a great sunrise.

On the way out of the driveway I said "Red skies at night, sailor's delight, red skies at morn, sailors be warned." My son asked what it meant. I just told him it was a rule of thumb about the weather. Red skies at night usually means good weather for sailing, red skies in the morning means it could be bad weather.

On the way to daycare he said, "There's a RAINBOW!!" And there was. A bold one to be sure, just after sunrise. A full arch. Here is a picture...from the cell phone....

....And then it rained. :-)

3 A's 2 B's all S's and O's. Brandon is doing marvelously well. More about some of the more recent issues later though.


  1. Great rainbow. I can't remember which day it was, but it had rained all day. After picking up the little miss and starting home we spied a rainbow - full arch - over the Washington Monument. It followed us all the way along the Potomac on the way home!

    Best rainbow I've ever seen...

  2. Did you find a pot of gold?? I love rainbows. Your son had a GREAT report card!
