In other news....
Earlier this week Im sure you heard The space shuttle was supposed to make its fly over our airspace here in Mobile. We found out at the last minute it was going to be flying over on Tuesday. SO we were so excited It was at bedtime "Bella" time and we didn't really get a chance to thoroughly on her level explain what it was really that was taking place. So she had a COMPLETEEEEEEE melt down and didn't want to see it. She thought I suppose it was going to explode in the back yard. I guess who knows what she thought.
We TRIED to tell her it would look just like a star going really fast but nope she wouldn't listen. (I dunno what is up with people these days. It is like NO ONE LISTENS TO ME UNLESS I'M STANDING ON TOP OF SOMETHING JUMPING UP AND DOWN, SLINGING GOLF CLUBS SCREAMING AT THE TOP OF MY LUNGS ANYMORE. That's another post. SO KEEP CHECKING IN) We didn't get to show her online what it would be like before hand. (we had just a few minutes before seeing it in the sky) It was bed time so not a good idea.. Hind site is 20/20. So... THURSDAY NIGHT... we had another chance. BUT, It was over cast and cloudy so we really didn't get to see it so good. BUT, David and Diane our neighbors more like family went out with us and set up the telescope so we could get a good look.
I did my homework before that one and pulled up N.A.S.A. on the web and did lots of prep work for THURSDAY night. We explained a lot about it to Bella. Got her all excited. Told her this will be something you can tell your kids about some day (WHEHEW big event here in MOBILE, ALABAMA you saw a DOT fly across the sky it was so tiny at 24 000 mph) HEY we are nerds we get excited about stuff like this!!!! I DONT GET OUT MUCH... OK AT ALLLL so this was pretty dadgum exciting to me THANK YOU VERY MUCH! Actually IT REALLY WAS COOL. I have never seen it before and it was pretty exciting! I am going to do a scrap book page about so be prepared. :)
I know our neighbors thought we were really on some kinda medication running around hootin an hollerin. The conversation went kinda like this here. (our neighbors always look at us sideways but that is kinda what I strive for anyway)
Remember IT WAS a VERY CLOUDY NIGHT and we were TRYIN' OUR BEST to find a TEEEENINY LIGHT DOT in the sky to show BELLA.
