Mostly Wordless Wednesday: The Eclipse of 2017

“The solar eclipse of August 21, 2017 was a total eclipse visible within a band across the entire contiguous United States, passing from the Pacific to the Atlantic coasts”.- Wikipedia

We are sporting the Celestron ISO Certified, 2017 North American Total Solar Eclipse EclipSmart 2x Power Viewers Solar Observing Kit that I purchased from Amazon in June.I wanted to make sure I got the glasses before they sold out. I did research to make sure the glasses were legit too. I am so glad I did because there was a big recall on a bunch of different glasses that would not protect your eyes properly. I’m hoping everyone caught on to the recall! You have to be so careful when viewing an eclipse!

Mostly Wordless Wednesday: End of Summer Camping

We spent the weekend camping with friends. We only traveled about 40 minutes from home to a campground called Promontory Park located in Estacada Oregon.  It’s a few days later but we are still feeling the effects it had into our daily routine.  The kids eat less and don’t rest as much because of all the excitement plus my oldest always gets bad car sickness if we travel more than 15 minutes or so down the road.

Computers For The Kids!

13-inch HP Stream Horizon Blue_Front_575pxI’m so excited that we were able to get the kids HP Stream Laptops thanks to our tax refund! These will be used for their schooling as well as an incentive for good behavior.  It’s pretty amazing what a little time on the computer can do for both of their attitudes. My husband heard about these on Windows Weekly and so far the computers are working great. We thought these were a better option than a tablet as they allow more possibilities. These are less likely to get dropped or damaged too.  The  $200.00 price tag makes these a great reasonably priced choice for those of all ages.
