John, McKayla and I, along with Dad and Bryan (and countless other people) had been planning on viewing the Eclipse for several weeks (months? years?). Well, all of us minus John, he didn't see the big deal but humored me anyway and joined us. lol We were one of the lucky ones that didn't have to travel too terribly far to view the full solar eclipse.
I had never seen an eclipse. Full or partial and this one was even more special in that it WAS a full eclipse and I wanted to join Dad in this once in a lifetime (for him) trip. Dad researched and researched and we even made a special trip to where he had originally wanted to view the eclipse. We had a spot picked out with perfect views and hoped it was far enough out that not many people would even think of trying it. We ended up not even making it that far tho but still ended up with a great viewing spot and wonderful company with other people who camped out with us.
We headed out several hours before it was supposed to start …
Goodness gracious! Another school year has come along. Where does time go?
McKayla is just as excited for this year as she has been for all the other years too. She's happy to have a male teacher this year and is aiming for all A's again AND to get 1st place in AR points. I think she'll accomplish both.
Today was just a half day, a short day to learn the rules and organize supplies. McKayla said she had a blast and says Mr. G is funny and she can't wait to go back on Monday. She's also happy that several of her friends are in her class ------- I just told her she needed to watch that mouth of hers tho, she talks just as much as her mother does. 😂
