Morning Rainbow

During breakfast yesterday morning, Andrew told me that it looked like "rin" outside. There were some crazy storm clouds we could see from our kitchen table. They looked so cool with the sun shining on them that I felt the need to take a picture. Well, look what I found:

I wasn't expecting that!
I ran back inside to grab Andrew to show him and then we saw something even more amazing - 2 rainbows!! Of course...I ran to get Andrew and didn't think to grab the camera again. Oh, well. That's not even the coolest part of that whole few moments out there. I told Andrew to look up and see the rainbow. Do you know what he said?!

"Mmhmm mama. Reh, Boo, Geen. Rinbow!" 

WHAT?! I cannpt believe how fast he is growing up. He is learning so much so quickly, too, that I had no idea he knew some of his colors. We talk about it all the time, but I never heard him actually point it out to me without any clues. I just said "rainbow."

We went back in to finish breakfast and I grabbed the book we got this month from Dolly Parton's Imagination Library - I Am a Rainbow by Dolly Parton. That is such a sweet little book. She teaches feelings and colors together. Like "green with envy" and "the blues" and such. But the best part is a little note she has at the end of the story:

"...I figured out how I could see a rainbow everyday -- all I had to do was reach up and pull that rainbow right out of the sky and place it in my heart..."
