The Final Hours of Summer Vacation...

I'm ready. And, they're ready. The kids go back to school tomorrow (Austen and Peyton at least) and so we countdown the final hours of the Summer of 2017. It was a good one punctuated by the viewing of the eclipse today. (It was cloudy so we didn't see much and we weren't in an area of totality but it was still very cool to watch). The kids enjoyed making their own viewers (thanks NASA) and watching the areas of totality go completely dark and then light again on TV as the eclipse crossed the continental U.S. Peyton of course was worried that she would go blind or that I would but she still took a peek into her viewer.

Lunch and Watching Eclipse Areas of Totality on TV
Since we'll be able to see another one in 2024, Tom and I have already decided that we'll try to make a trip to an area of totality then with the whole family. Austen will be 17 then, Peyton 14 and Hailey 10 - and I don't even want to think how old we'll be but still a once or twice in a lifetime experience for sure that we don't want to miss.
