Studying Space

Sorry I never update my blog anymore - but I thought this picture was too cute not to share!

We have been studying about Space lately. Joshua read Find the Constellations by H.A. Rey, he's also read George's Secret Key to the Universe and George's Cosmic Treasure Hunt by Stephen and Lucy Hawking. And then we built this kit together.

Joshua has enjoyed studying about Space and we are continuing to get more books from the library about NASA and the Space Program.

After the kit was built Joshua started talking about the planet Uranus and Jason and I started laughing (because we're immature like that). Delia asked why it was called Uranus and I said "it's probably named after some Greek God" and Joshua assured us that was the case and started telling us who other planets were named after. I was amazed - Joshua has way more knowledge and understanding of our Solar System than I do!

Awesome picture! You know, I'm pretty sure that Joshua would love an adventure to see a shuttle launch!

I love that you and Jason are immature like that :)
And yes, that picture is too cute!

Oh, should I admit that I totally scarfed the pizza last time we went to Chuck E. Cheese? :)

(And you and Jason look so good in that date pic!)
