Astronomy Lessons, Part 2

Have completely redone Bay's ceiling. Got 3 packs of glow-in-the-dark star stickers at Wal-Mart the other day. Got sent home from work yesterday due to bad weather so I decided to put them up. First spent over an hour putting up yarn (via tacks) up on the ceiling in a grid. Printed out a "map" of the constellations, which I then drew a grid on. It took me another hour and a half or so to then put them all up. Her celing now has about 2 dozen constellations on it. Bay loves it. She can find and name the Little Dipper, Cassiopeia, and Cygnus. She was asking what every other one else was called. I guess I am going to have to start learning them all myself too.

School cancelled - AGAIN

School was cancelled - again. I don't know how many days now. Today was cancelled due to flooding. Bet we'll have a few more days of school cancelled for that.

Astronomy Lessons

I had fun today. We got a pack of glow-in-the-dark stars today for Bayleigh. I then went online and printed off a pic of common constellations. I then started to place them on her ceiling in (approx) locations. I only had enough for Ursa Major (yes I did all of it, not just the dipper part), Ursa Minor, Cygnus, Cassiopeia, and Hercules. Part of Hercules is obscured by the light, but it's only 4 stars. Plan to get (a lot) more and do her whole ceiling. Already quizzing her on their names and she's doing good. Thinking on maybe taking her outside on a clear night and seeing if she can find them for real once she knows them better.

First Post!

So here's how our family might be able to communicate, post pictures, and keep in touch. It's set up so all of us can log in and make posts! Let me know if you need any help writing posts - it's pretty straightforward.
