Father's Day & Rainbows

Frédéric got his early Father's Day present/card from Benjamin today:
It says "bonne fête papa" (Happy Father's Day). (Is anyone else as impressed as I am by his cursive? It still blows my mind that they start cursive so young here. Could be why so many of them end up with beautiful handwriting.) Frédéric was very pleased with it, and Benjamin was very proud of himself for drawing the hearts himself. And he got to pick the color of paper he wanted to make it. I love that he still loves pink and hasn't been told that it's a "girl color."

Benjamin said the prayer at dinnertime tonight.

"Thank you God for Noah and Daddy and Mommy and Noah and Daddy and Mommy and Benjamin and ketchup. In Jesus' name, Amen."

All the important blessings. And doubly thankful for some of them.

And we were treated to several bright rainbows during and after today's rainstorms.

Pointers on how to take good rainbow pictures gratefully accepted.
