Here from Missouri

#1

Post by meeng »

Life long space nerd and i now have my own little space nerds. Up till now, I havn't made much effort to "unsure" my children would love space as much as I always have, but they have "aged into it" and I want to encourage it.

Thank you all for the warm welcome. Life simply gets too busy, and fortunately the Eclipse in 2017 provided a great opportunity to "remember" how much I enjoy it, but also see how much my children all enjoy it.
