Rainbows

0


The Tuesday after our car broke down the boys & took it to the shop & then walked back home {this is not our street}. We got home, just beating the rain, to discover we were locked out of the house. Mr S had gone back in & double checked all doors were locked, & then left all the keys with the mechanic. We sent him a txt message declaring we were locked out of the house, only he was in a meeting! Thankfully my mother-in-law's neighbor had popped in to collect something & offered to take me into town to get a spare key from our real estate office. I'm not sure knows it, but that women is an angel in disguise. 

The following day, Wednesday, we got a phone call at lunch time that our car was done & ready for collection. It had been raining earlier in the day, but the sun was out so we decided to hike the hour into town before the rain took a second wind & came back.

Three blocks from the mechanics Jayden told us to check out the rainbow in the sky. He's an absolute master at finding rainbows & pointing them out to us. Not sure if you can see it in the picture or not, but most rainbows in Tasmania have a beautiful & vibrant violet layer as well. This one wasn't as vibrant, but it was there none the less.

Of course, once he spotted the rainbow he suggested we run the last three blocks because it started to sprinkle on us, & if there's one thing you should know about this child he despises rain. No, we didn't actually run the final three blocks, but he sweated it just in case we got caught in a downpour!
