The big full moon last night gave me an opportunity to spend time with the grand boys w/out any electronic diversion.
We sat in the driveway and focused on the giant moon with the Wally world telescope. We talked about all the marks on the moon and speculated about what had caused them. We speculated about how our Great Lord actually made the moon and stars.
The little one got his art easle and a flash light and looked deeply into the telescope and then went and sat on the ground and drew what he saw. The pictures were very cool too. I will try to post them later.
We looked at Orions belt and a star that twinkled pink then blue then pink etc.
We need a book to show us their names.
We saw a shooting star. It was a very good night.
