The girls and I have been watching a lot of sunrises lately (read: every day!). We get a fabulous view of them through our living room and kitchen windows. The pictures here definitely don't do them justice. The sky is always pink and purple, and the sun appears first bright red just as it comes over the horizon, then as it rises further it gradually becomes a dark, burnt orange colour, then bright orange, then .... well, then we are too busy getting ready for preschool to see what happens then. But our whole living room lights up orange inside, and there are bright orange patches of light in the hallway too. Almost (but not quite) worth getting up so damn early for. They do provide an excellent source of discussion about sciencey-type stuff though - seasons, time, daylight, colours, etc. I'm sure I'm passing on all sorts of educational nuggets of wisdom in my semi-conscious state!
