My parents got the kiddos their first telescope for Christmas, and ever since we've been asked at least 2-3 times a day canwegetthetelescopeoutnowpleeeeease?!
Unfortunately there's always been a reason why the answer has had to be no so far: it's been too cloudy, it's been way (way way way) too cold, the kids have been sick, I've been under the weather... but tonight we got to say yes. Yes, it's clear. Yes, it's warm enough. Yes, we'll get the telescope out tonight.
They were so excited... you could say they were over the moon (booooo, I know)...
(Mama also tried out her new camera in super low light... so do forgive the blurry photos, some of us couldn't hold still for the pictures! But they turned out well for it actually being almost pitch-black!)
It was too windy to keep the telescope aimed properly and still very for long, but overall everyone was pretty excited about the experience, and as long as my kiddos stay excited about science that's all that matters to me!
