No WONDER the Hawaii state logo on the licence plates is a rainbow! We see multiple rainbows every day here! E said she saw two in the sky at the same time earlier today! It seems to "mist" here a lot, not quite raining, but never enough to chase away the sun and white puffy clouds.
I thought I'd start taking pictures of them today... so here's the first of them.
I'll add more as I take them.
Before living here I never really gave much thought to their rainbow license plates before. =o)
The kids are accumulating a group of friends from our street too. They are expanding the age limits of their friend groups too.
I keep having the feeling that we're camping here. My whole life growing up, we travelled and camped... in all sorts of campgrounds, from very nice with all the ammenities, to those with outhouse-like showers and no hook-ups of any sort and no swimming pool (I HATED those!!). But one thing that was remained the same no matter where we were, or what state..... kids of all ages agreed to play with each other when they were camping.
It didn't matter so much how old the other kids were, just that they were a playmate for the day. Here in Hawaii, we spend our entire days outside, and kids just start wandering and gathering in unlikely groups.
N's best new buddies range in age from 3 to 7. Back in South Carolina he would NEVER have considered playing with a 3 year old, but somehow things are different for him here, too.
And the pickings are mighty slim for an 11 year old girl, so E's playing with ALL sorts... from 3 year old boys up to an 8 year old girl so far. LOL! Poor babe. She has a friend her age that just moved in sort of near us, and who goes to her school, but her mom is keeping her very busy moving in, so we don't see much of her.
