Space exploration is alive and well! On Saturday, May 30th, SpaceX (Elon Musk’s company) sent two NASA astronauts up in space on the Falcon 9 which was scheduled to meet with the International Space Station on Sunday morning. Since 2011, it was the first launch for NASA.
It was so amazing to watch the rocket launch, break off into space and then for the part to land back on Earth (in Ireland!)
Doug’s company, Honeywell, was responsible for some of the parts. I know my honey’s job is mostly working on the Space Station and keeping those astronauts alive! They’ll be there for about 3 months. Pretty cool!!!
Tatum, Daddy, and I all watched. AND COOPY of course.
As a past English teacher, my DREAM is to teach my kiddo to write …and I mean write stories, ideas…..anything that involves put her heart, mind, thoughts on paper.
So I bought this book with some notebooks to take notes. Our goal: WRITE SOME STORIES!
I am writing with her in my own book. We are starting with writing our own fairy tale, so we take notes on the tools we use to write one.
Fairy tales contain many things like a setting long ago in a made-up land.
We will continue this later!
For our Bible chat, we are going through a couple of books by Lee Strobel. I want her to be confident in her faith in Jesus, so that means she needs to be armed with her WHY she is a Christian. Is it just blind faith? NO!!
We’ll go through both books.
We also have over 100 verses we go through each week.
These are just part of our fun summer, academically. I am adding in lots of play and creativity. Many of the camps she would attend have been canceled, so we must have some other ideas to keep engaged and excited. I believe in unstructured play as much as possible, so this is definitely happening.
