So when I got back from purchasing tires for the Technical Writing Express this morning—ouch—Lea and the boys were snuggled up in our bed and enjoying goofy conversation. What a perfect thing to be doing on a stormy Saturday morning, right?
The boys were telling silly, invented-on-the-spot jokes about Neil Armstrong going down the steps, slipping, and accidentally falling all the way off the moon. So then I said “who was the second person on the moon?”
Aaron: “Sally Ride!”
Bo: “Not a bad guess. Sally Ride was the first American woman in space, but she never went to the moon. It was Edwin Aldrin. Now, who was also on that mission, but never landed, instead remaining in orbit around the moon?”
Aaron: “George Washington!”
Bo: (goofy look)
There are lots of good names to know in my six-year-old’s head. I’m glad we have a few years yet to sort them all out.
I hope you’re having a good weekend.
