What to muse about today?

double rainbow!

Yesterday, we followed a rainbow home from the store. It started as a double rainbow, but as the rain evaporated, it became one arc.

Teagan said that there was treasure at the end of the rainbow. As the girls pointed at the rainbow we were following, I said that it looked as if the end was over our house.this made the girls very excited. “Drive faster!” Teagan said. “Faster!” Ashlin echoed. “We’re getting closer!” Stu encouraged. “Treasure! I want to find treasure!” Teagan said. Up, up, up the hill we went.

As we turned the final corner to our house, the rainbow moved, and settled to a house or two away from ours. As we get the girls out of their car seats, Teagan asks if we can follow the rainbow so we could get the treasure? No, sweetie, we can’t follow it into someone else’s yard. Maybe next time.

Dejected, the girls allow us to corrale them towards the front door. Stu looks down and asks Teagan if she saw something in the grass. When she looked where he was pointing, she saw a silver coin, a lollipop and a glass gem. Her head nearly exploded. She screamed that the treasure fell as the rainbow moved, the leprechauns dropped it. They both did a happy dance. She claimed the lollipop and the gem, Ashlin got the coin.

Watching them, their joy, I am so glad Stu was such a quick thinker, and had a Big Y coin, the dumdum Teagan earned for being good at naptime, and a bit of glass that Teagan probably swiped from daycare the day before in his pocket to quickly drop in the grass when the girls weren’t paying attention.

They are going to want to chase rainbows for years. So awesome!

End of the rainbow...

      Teagan asked this morning if it was going to rain. Several times. Finally Stu twigged on that she was really asking if they could look for dropped treasure at the end of the rainbow :D
