happy eclipse day

Monday, August 21, 2017

My search for eclipse glasses came a little too late, and there were no glasses to be found.  I ended up trying the homemade box thing.  Well, I can honestly say I was a bit disappointed at that little shape in my box.  The crescents formed from the leaves though were quite impressive.  (The leaves act like pinholes and cast the shadow on the earth.) I teared all up that this phenomena was even happening.  Being alive in this universe to witness the greatest show above earth?!  Wow.  I then headed inside to watch the rest on TV.  :)

I just can't believe that two of my children have headed back to their schools.  Where did the summer go?!  I snapped some photos the night before they left at our back to school dinner.  I wish I had done that before every school year.
