Andrew was mostly interested in the fact that I had put a hole in the cardboard with a pin. Valerie actually looked, and said it was "cool."
My dad, a middle school science teacher for thirty-two years was always showing me science-y things. In sixth grade he helped me make a shoebox viewer for the total eclipse that year (we had about 85% here on Sunday). I bet he was out on Sunday looking at it, too. (Note to self: Call your folks!)
I hope my kids remember going out to look at the tiny little crescent sun on paper. Such a small thing. But such a big thing, too.
P.S. As an aside, what's with the amber flood light? We rent our house, and are not responsible for the selection of such a light bulb. I just don't see the appeal.
