we don’t get too terribly geeked-out about many things here, but when it is something that hasn’t happened for 20 or so years, we get into it as much as we can.
merrill got out his welding helmet, and we dragged the kiddos outside to see the eclipse.
it was pretty cool.
first up is ash (cause you totally know that is her, right?) and lynn, with her poor bear, lancelot (you know, from “labyrinth”?) his retinas are burned severely now.
and peyton’s turn!!
this was more towards the beginning of the eclipse. we didn’t get to see the “ring”. we are too far north or some junk like that.
we called our friends over so they could see it too, and while waiting for turns with the welding helmet, they played “sun, moon, sun, moon, eclipse!!!”. pretty cute and awfully creative.
I feel like I should have made cupcakes or something…
this was the best it got for us, just a crescent of the sun.
and darn those clouds again.
so until 2023…. this is the best we’ll get!
