Admittedly I like a lot of stuff–gadgets, comics, art, fashion, politics, books, music–it’s quite a list.  But one of my absolute favorite things is science–Space in particular.  We’ll become fast friends for life just by mentioning the name Carl Sagan.

Tonight we’re going to bed extra early in order to get up and get ready to go to NASA.  I’ve not been since I was itty bitty–Before the Space Shuttle program was officially started.  It’s a shame that as long as we’ve lived in Florida I’ve never been to Kennedy Space Center itself.

The kids have seen the shuttle lift off–but throw in how far away from lift off we were (closest was 10 miles) and their age (young) and they’ve really not experienced what actual space crafts look like.  I’m excited to see them get involved!

I’ve been down to the coast and seen a launch–truly magnificent–and always tried to step out outside to see launches.
But tomorrow I’ll be as giddy as kid on Christmas morning and bouncing in the seat to get a look at rockets, missiles, and satellites!

Happy early Christmas to me!
