Marbles and a Rainbow

Trading Day

The marbles have turned out to be a great buy. I have seen at least 28 different variations of marble games in the last few weeks. Some of the marbles are more desirable than others, apparently. This has led to a fierce bartering system that involves not only marbles, but also chores, culinary skills, and the last hot dog.:o)

The bigs have spent more than 15 hours in the last week with their marbles. Although this toy had a slow start I think it may be a keeper. I'm going to start looking for vintage marbles for them and see how that goes.
We walked out of the Library to this....

You can barely see it, but there's a sweet little slice of rainbow there. Auri was thrilled and it made her special "all by myself" trip to the library even better.

Rainbows are one of those things that all ages can pause and appreciate. It is beautiful!

Marbles are a great invention. What great bartering skills the kids are developing!
