There was a downpour this afternoon, the kind that seemed to come out of nowhere because in the kitchen, where Cass and I were playing an intense game of freeze dance, the sun was warming us through the windows and the clouds were of the white cotton ball variety. Out front, however, all was dark and ominous. And wet.
Perfect weather for rainbow hunting, right? So I rushed us both into raincoats and boots and we ran outside. Alas, no rainbows anywhere. No real ones, anyway. Cass saw lots of pretend rainbows. And we jumped in some good puddles, so it turned out all right.
We did a lot of things today. There were cupcakes and leaf rubbings and squirrels in the yard. There was freeze dancing! But when Shane came home from a day of teaching and asked Cass what we did, the thing she remembered was rainbow hunting.
Some of the best memories I have with Cassandra are the times I act on my childlike impulses, like running into a storm to look for rainbows. It makes me happy to know those are her best memories too.
