This is nothing special, well to you anyway. I'm not a scrapbook type, or a baby book writer, or even a picture printer. I'm terrible at recording memories. This blog is my attempt at holding on to some of my life as a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling Mom of 5. I am a country girl that lived in a big city for 14 years, and moved to the Deep South for quiet, quaint, small town living.

Moon Unit Cont'

We talked about astronauts on the moon. We talked about how they got there and looked at the pics on of the shuttles. I asked her if she could take a spaceship to the moon. She said, "Yes, maybe if I was older and could stay by myself. And I need to learn to drive a car first." True.

I asked her to make a spaceship that she would take to the moon (after getting her license of course). She drew one in under a minute! I looked at the drawing and said it was too flat, we need to make something bigger. I brought up some boxes from the basement, duct tape, scissors and paper and we got to work. I cut and folded and she taped. Liv then painted the shuttle to make it "pretty." (Some days I love how feminine she is!)
Here is her finished spaceship!
