So…what have we been up too? Well, Florida had a cold day — probably like 15 degrees Celsius. It felt COLD. Till I lectured myself that if I was back home, or at school, this would be considered a WARM day. The lecture helped…slightly! But it was still cold and windy.
We went to the Kennedy Space Center … it was cool. I saw a lot of fire and explosions (under the rockets/space shuttles) as they were fired off into space. Yeah. A LOT of explosions. We went in the space shuttle simulator and they shook our brains to bits. But we all came out alive, in spite of scary warnings and disclaimers that were beginning to make me feel nervous! Oh, and hey, we saw an alligator on the side of the road on the way there! Uncle G pulled over and stopped and we went running back for pics. We (Timothy and his cousin and me [the “his” cousin has a reason — ask me if you’re wondering why it’s his cousin not mine]) stopped a safe distance back. Then they wanted to go closer. I didn’t think we should. I figured I’d hang back a little so that if the alligator charged for supper, he’d eat them first and not me.
Well, I think the boys are done their game now and we’re going to watch a movie so I shall depart. I apologize if there are words without spaces in between. The space bar on little brother’s computer doesn’t work so well and I haven’t mastered the art of hitting it harder than all the other keys. You’d think my piano skills would pay off, but so far they haven’t. Maybe ’cause I haven’t practiced much lately.
Us girls were sunning ourselves by the pool this morning, and reading and chatting, and I was making a guest list with my Theology textbook safely beside me. Having my theology book (the one I’m supposed to be reading right now) beside me makes the rest of life SO much more interesting. Kind of like bringing your math book on a trip suddenly makes the scenery interesting! But then Timothy’s cousin came out the patio door, tossed an orange in the pool, then came tearing across the cement hollering “I’m going to go bobbing for oranges!” and cannonballed in. Brothers! And cousins! 🙂
