Everyone was talking about it this morning. The news said the space shuttle Endeavor was going to fly over our area. We took the first graders to lunch early and had them eat outside. At about 11:30, this was our view
I saw the shuttle go behind a tree, then it came out the other side and flew almost directly over the playground. The kids were excited, but nothing compared to how excited I was, I'm sure! I got a book from the library this morning to share with them to try to impart some of the significance of this event to my students. They were interested, but of course the history part is hard for them to grasp. It was a truly amazing sight to see. Do things like that make you cry? or am I the only one? I get choked up just writing about it.
Hopefully you had a good week. We did, but I sure am glad it's Friday! I'll be back over the weekend with the 2nd Holiday Picture Book Linky Party for Halloween books. Have a relaxing evening!
