We haven’t even had our first ‘official’ day of school but we had an amazing field trip on Monday to East Georgia State College.
We originally planned to drive a couple of hours over to our friend’s farm in SC in order to be in the path of totality for the solar eclipse, but we opted for 97% totality, a 15 minute drive and the opportunity to meet some local homeschoolers, visit the planetarium, watch NASA’s live streaming, make a fun solar eclipse craft and watch the actual eclipse outside with some super cool eye protection.
Andy managed to take a little time to join us and I’m glad he did, because it’s only confirming that we want to make lifestyle choices that benefit our family which currently includes homeschooling and farming/homesteading.
I am amazed that we had the entire planetarium to ourselves (it’s small but sufficient and was perfect for our group) and I don’t think the day could have been more perfect. I am thankful for how everything turned out and that we were able to witness such a spectacular astronomical event.
