Yesterday after the storms rolled out, stretched across the sky was a giant rainbow. As Buckethead and I drove the kids to their mom's house, the following coversation occured:
Buckethead: Okay, kids what does the rainbow signify?
Me: Oooo, Ooooo I know! I know! Pick me!
Mitch: Ahhh, does it mean that it rained?
Julia: Duh, Mitch!
Buckethead: No. Try again. I'll give you a hint. It's a covenant between Man and God.
Me: Pick me! Pick me! I know the answer! Ooo, ooo! Pllleeeeaaassse!
Julia: Ummm....is it that Jesus died on the cross?
Me: No, dummy! I know it! Mark, plleeaassse!
Buckethead: Try again, kids. Okay, here's another hint. It has something to do with a boat.
Julia: Okay, when Jesus walked on the water when they were fishing?
Me: NOOOO.....come on guys! Mark, I know the answer!!
Buckethead: Okay a boat and Animals in Pairs of two....sounding familiar?
Me: Of course, it sounds familar. Noah and the Ark! After the flood, God made a covenant with man that he would never destroy the Earth again by a flood.
Buckethead: Jennifer, when I ask a question and it starts with "Kids", try to remember that the question isn't directed to you.
Me: Yes, sir.
