I don't know what they're more excited about--the eclipse, or staying up on a weeknight.
Oh, it’s the latter, LOL! My kids were the same way. They STILL talk about the time that we all (Mom, Dad, the three boys, the dogs...even the cats!) slept out on the deck in August to watch a meteor shower.
Of course, they whined and complained the whole time...until “The Show” started. They fell asleep soon after they counted 200 “falling stars.”
Good times. Enjoy this! :)
“...and my kids are freaking out..”
I think it was on AOL last week where they had an interesting article on Christopher Columbus and how he used his maritime charts which predicted a lunar eclipse to scare the Indians into helping him. I suppose google it and it will bring up some things the kids will enjoy.
