February photo 21
Did any of y'all watch the lunar eclipse last night? We did. Actually, we HAD to, as it was Graceful's homework.
The girls were so excited and worried that they would miss the whole thing, until we explained that it wasn't dramatic like that, that it would take about an hour to happen and wasn't a 15 second occurance.
Luckily, their bedrooms are on the east side of the house and their beds are near the windows, so they could lie in their beds, all warm and cozy. And if Elegant just happened to fall asleep early on? Well, that's just bonus. And if Graceful fell asleep shortly thereafter? Double bonus.
I did not take the photo above, which I shamelessly stole from Yahoo News. The moon did not actually look like that here in Virginia. Maybe in the other 49 states, but not mine. It was small and white, then a l-o-n-g time later it was small and brown, then m-u-c-h later it was small and white again.
So now all residents of Jenworld can say they've seen a lunar eclipse. The next one is in 2010 and something tells me we'll be watching it then too.
