Did You See This? (Rated PG-7)

Check out this photo taken here in Big City on Sunday evening:


It was reported on here. We were watching the storm brewing from our deck, but got inside before the lightening started. As I'm sure you already guessed after seeing my awesome New Year's firework shots, I didn't take the photo. I didn't know about it until today when I picked up Juan Carlos from school and his teahcers had the photo, cut out from a local newspaper, prominently displayed at preschooler-eye level in their classroom.

I'm so glad (hear my sarcasm here people).

He was already crying and in my bed at the first sounds of thunder, rain, or wind that was too hard. We would spend lots of time assuring him that he would be ok, that our house would be ok, that the cats would be ok, that our cars would be ok, etc. etc. Now he has this image seered into his brain and we look like liars. He spent the rest of the day telling anyone who would listen about the Christ statue getting hit by lightening.

And we are coming into spring here-and that means more storms.

I can feel my already-limited, choppy-at-best, sleep slipping through my fingers...

I agree with no cool story...thanks teachers! I hope Juan Carlos survives these Spring storms without too many emotional scars. Poor thing.

Yikes! Poor little guy. You'd think the teachers would have been more sensitive.

"Rated PG-7" made me laugh.

And then your sleep slipping through your fingers made me cry...I feel for you. Believe me.

Poor Juan Carlos...lightning is scarey! Maybe with all the storms he will get more and more used to it? I mean, we can hope...
