I think it is fantastic the way you are creating so many good memories for your children!

(This is my first comment, but I have been following your blog for a long time, reading from Greece)

What fun!

Scooter has a telescope that we still haven't used, partly because he tends to go to bed before the sun goes down at this time of year. I've been thinking about offering to "camp" in our backyard with him to do some stargazing the week before school starts.

The universe was on our minds yesterday too. We made a solar system on the driveway with sidewalk chalk yesterday, drawing rockets large enough for the children to "ride" in. Though B's favorite part was their imaginary planets they had drawn and the subsequent alien discussions. I love it when their imaginations hit overdrive.

A "star" camp in the backyard sounds great, mouse!

What fun, Omaha--T. loves doing chalk drawings and how neat to make pretend spaceships for the kids!

I'm so glad you commented, grrr. I love that you're following from Greece--my heart is there, as you might know. :)
