Lunar Eclipse

We were lucky enough to have an amazingly clear night last night to view the eclipse. We got the telescope out, along with our neighbor and her telescope, and looked at the beautiful moon up close. I also couldn't resist taking some pictures, just to see how they'd turn out. Even though they're a bit blurry, I still loved the way they turned out. What a GREAT way to spend an evening.....outside with the family, in the brisk cool air, looking at the moon.

Play it......AGAIN......Sam...

Sam decided to try out for soccer this year - something she's never played before. As Sam usually does, she went all out (Ms. Aggressive) and made the position of "Center Mid-Fielder", along with being a team captain with her friend, Amy. Anyway, yesterday was their first game and they won, 1-0! Needless-to-say, it was a really exciting day for her!

Here Comes the Sun.......

After dealing with rain night and day for the past month or so, we finally saw the sun for a couple of days this week! (We even made it 2 days without rain AT ALL! YEAH!) Even though it was partially cloudy - we actually got our sunglasses out. It felt really good to feel the sun beating down on us for a short time!

This is what happens when Andy goes jeeping without us! It was Sam's turn to be sick this last weekend (she's on the soccer team now, and it's been very cold, with rain, sleet, hail and snow...all in one week) and Amanda was babysitting all day Saturday, so Andy went with some friends of his for the day. They were cutting and clearing a tree from the middle of a trail and he tangled with it. It appears he lost, too!
