Space Station

We are wrapping up our lessons on Astronomy. We used the Apologia curriculum which includes a biblical view and many activities to do along the way. This last chapter was on space travel. Here is Jake and Luke's replica of the space station.

My marathon husband informed me that the correct amount of miles before running Boston was 636.29 over a time period of 5.5 months. Just so we are all clear on that!

Run, Dan, Run

Well, my husband is off to Boston to participate in the 113th Boston Marathon! This was a goal that he set a few years back and now it is here! We are all so proud of him. In order to run in the Boston Marathon, he had to qualify with a time of 3:15:00 or less. He qualified last year in Grand Rapids and had 18 months to use his qualifying time. He has spent the last 3 months and over 350 miles in training! He will be running Monday at 10:00.

The boys gave him some advice for his run:
"Make sure your shoes are tied"
"Always do your best"
"Do, or do not, there is no try" (from Yoda)
Good Luck Dan!
