Meredith has been studying astronomy this year and has to memorize the 15 brightest stars, the constellations, and the zodiacs. Science became a lot more fun when Kevin took our kids, and some friends, outdoors to find these theoretical 15 brightest stars. We saw some of them at night, and some we saw before sunrise. "Oh my goodness, so THAT is Capella." And, "Arcturus does look reddish, doesn't it?" were things that could be overheard. Everyone thought it was pretty awesome!
(Yeah, I couldn't help but post this picture of Carson, in his superhero shirt. He gets lots of compliments.)
