Why is the sky blue?

Colorado is the BEST! We've had 50 to 60 degree weather all through January with beautiful sunny skies. While the rest of the country is experiencing ice storms, freezing temps and many feet of snow, we've been playing at the park and even jumping on the trampoline with our swimsuits (my boys, not I!).

So, the other day, as my boys are jumping on the trampoline half naked, I noticed just how blue the sky really is. Christian had set up these "stations" for he and Nico to play and one of those "stations" was a relaxing station. There were two towels layed out on the lawn. It looked very inviting, so I went to the relaxing station. Isabella and I got back rubs and lots of hugs and kisses-just what I wanted that day. Once the back rubs ended, I laid on my back and the blueness of the sky hit me like a rock! How in the world can such a beautiful color just occur in the sky? I was struck by the beauty of it. Colorado is great-no smog, fog...just pure air and sky! It was gorgeous and breath taking. So, why is the sky blue? How come it's not green or purple? Maybe when I create a world I'll have green skies-except for what I saw the other day was perfect- blue skies it is!

Wow! I am so jealous of the weather you guys are having! Although, Mike was outside washing our cars today since it broke 40!!! WOO-HOO!!! It looks like you guys are doing really good though! I watched Isabella's laugh on You Tube! That was way too cute! Her laugh is SOOO infectious! Plus, the Hot Wheels pancakes! That's a total plus! Tell Jamie he did a good job!

I miss those beautiful blue skies!! I remember the weather in Colorado being THE BEST!! You never get sick of the snow because it's here and then gone. I can't believe it's been 7 years since I was back there!
