As you all very likely know, today was the solar eclipse. As a person that has very little forethought for things like this, I waited until the last minute before preparing for the event. My husband had created the cool tube chip container viewers on Saturday, and I made the cereal box viewers this morning.
I invited my mom to join us, and as soon as the eclipse started, we walked the half block to the nearby park/field and hunkered down. They aren't in the photos, but there were a bunch of other families that had gathered on the field to watch, as well.
My kids were interested for a short while, but soon became more entertained by running and wrestling on the grass (it's the only green grass for miles, as the summer sun has dried everything up).
Below, are some of the photos that I took today.
I hope you all were able to get a glimpse (safely)! Happy Monday!
