We asked Dad to borrow his binoculars and brought out our telescope. It took a while before the moon was high enough for us to enjoy, but in the mean time ... The boys had a great time looking at stars and three airplanes in the sky (my oldest preread this and said I should add satellites too).
We started out at the bottom of our yard, then went up one level (of our tiny hill) and before we knew it we were on the last level's wood deck. In complete darkness, mind you. The moon was finally there. My four year old immediately said, "it looks like cheese!", others' chimed in: "how pretty", "it's yellow", "how big", "can we go there". But my favorite was when I finally got the telescope adjusted and they all had a turn looking through it. The image was so nice and clear. It didn't look yellow anymore, but white and gray. The craters were very visible and each one of them had one word: "WOW!"
God bless the moon, And God bless me.
