That "One Small Step" from 40 Years Ago!

Wow! It's been forty years since Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin stepped onto the Moon for the first time! I can't believe it. 1969 seems so . . . recent. After all, most of the history that I read about is from 1769. :o Or WWII . . . but the Sixties is so new. :) If you want to know more about the space program, take a look at our "Space" page on Beyond Curricula.

Well, Mom's family has gotten tickets for Mom and the two of us girls to go to Florida for a nice vacation. We're leaving day after tomorrow and I can hardly wait!! Our uncle is going to take a bunch of us cousins snorkeling --- that's a first for the two of us, so I think it will be really fun.

I'm hoping to have a bunch of pictures when we come back. Maybe even some under water ones! We've been doing eveyday kind of things around here. Dad and I were out mowing the lawn this weekend. The weather this Summer has been great, but our grass looks terrible and is hardly growing. It's all weeds and mole hills.

Check out this new video that Elizabeth updated to my youtube channel. It's one of our favorite Bing Crosby songs. She's also been uploading some opera clips to her channel. She's got an opera blog now, so you can check that out HERE.

We went to a fabulous garage sale last weekend that had bins and bins full of baby clothes where everything was $.25/ea. I ended up with two laundry loads of baby things. The little overalls were especially cute when they were hanging on the line! :) We've got a pretty good collection now of both girl and boy things now.

Hope everyone has fun. We'll be in sunny Florida for a week,
so "talk to ya'" later . . .
