“Wow!” Adi gasps from the backseat. I look around for what has caught her attention. “Look at the moon.”
“Where? I don’t see it,” I say.
“Over there,” she says pointing.
I look and see a perfect golden circle against the morning sky. A sky just beginning to awaken into a soft blue- an uninterrupted canvas as far as we could see. The moon looked as if it was glued right onto the blue, like we could reach out and grab it.
“I wonder if Wrenny saw it,” Adi said. This is one of those morning we divide and conquer the drop offs. “Let’s take a picture for her,” she adds showing her sweet heart amidst her “angry phase.”
Sitting at a red light I fumbled for my phone snapping a photo just as the light turned green. “Did I get it?” I asked Adi, passing my phone back to her.
Giggles erupted as Adi let me know that I just got a picture of the car.
“It’s following us,” Adi noticed as we continued to look for the moon as we traveled onward to preschool and work. Each time we spotted the moon, we marveled at it’s beauty.
“Have you ever seen a more beautiful moon?”
Every traffic light we approached, I willed it to be red so we could try and get a picture. No luck on this morning…
Finally, before we got on the highway, we got our chance. Adi squealed in anticipation. I took a quick picture then I passed the phone back to her again.
“A picture will never be able to capture how beautiful that moon is in real life.”
