After years of constant activity but no interest in sports, Rachel has decided to play soccer.
Rachel was ready an hour early, proudly wearing her bright yellow # 3 t-shirt.

The swing at the Arboretum is one of my girls' favorite places in the universe. There is just something magical about it.
We were too busy last weekend to make it to the annual Tulip Time festival at the Arboretum, so since we didn't have school today Granny and the girls and I decided to visit. We had the whole place to ourselves!

Our small local library has a fabulous NASA exhibit in it right now. Last spring one of the librarians contacted Steve and asked if he would like to be on a committee to write a proposal to be one of six libraries nation wide that would host an exhibit on NASA. Steve jumped at the idea and he and assorted other science oriented people in town worked to put together a proposal, including community activities centered on space. They won a coveted slot, by far the smallest library to do so! The grand opening was last week and we went to explore.
There are displays and activities crammed into every corner of the library, each on a different topic. There is SO much information, but also lots of hands-on ways to learn. It's quite fascinating!
I am not at all a space aficionado, but this exhibit was fascinating. I look forward to returning to it again and again over the next few weeks. There are also star viewing parties, book clubs on space themed books, speakers from NASA, space themed art activities for both adults and kids, children's programs, rocketry classes, and many other activities scheduled. Our library rocks! If you live anywhere near, don't miss out on this exhibit.
