I love looking up at the stars at night.
Where I live.
Lights, lights, and more lights…….making it all too hard to see the stars.
When I heard there was going to be a meteor shower the other night, I let the kids stay up late.
We went outside and right away we actually saw a shooting star, meteor, whatever it was.
Hey, I love looking at them. I didn’t say I knew what all of them were!
So, my kids ran to our next door neighbors house and knocked on the door.
Sure, it was late. They were close to heading up to bed.
But, it was a meteor shower!!!!
They came out.
The kids got REALLY excited!!!
The adults saw a few.
The kids saw nothing.
My youngest went inside and grabbed a microphone to serenade the event with Hannah Montana music (thanks to her older sister).
That was the highlight of the evening.
I’m sure my neighbors loved that I kept their kids up late as well for such an amazing event as staring up at the stars and seeing nothing.
Maybe next time we’ll head to a better location.
