Starry, starry night.

On Sunday we had dinner with a few friends and I'm so glad we did! For one, all the little kids get along together really well. Also, it was the night of the solar eclipse, and we might not have made such a big deal out of it if we had been home alone.

Kev brought his welding mask over to Jon's and Sharice's so we could look through it and a pair of sunglasses and stare directly at the sun. Doesn't that sound like a really great idea? Well, it worked. And I'm not blind yet.
The shadows were so amazing! The kids played in the sandbox for ages while the adults got to chat and observe the eclipse. Jon's brother made a contraption of cardboard and aluminum foil so we could avoid burning our eyes out. There was a pin hole in the foil so the image of the eclipse could be projected through the cardboard tube onto the paper taped at the end.

So crafty.

Did you see the eclipse, too?

  2. It was pretty cool! We didn't even know about it until we saw people on our walk staring up at the sky with some weird contraption lol.
