The letter of the week is A. So I told the children that the astronauts were going into space today on the shuttle Atlantis. Rooster decided that since she doesn't have school today she might as well go into space too. So she grabbed my sweatshirt for her space suit. Then she grabbed a book on the lunar landing so she could do some research.While she flipped through the pages she decided that she needed moon boots and a flag. Currently, she is assembling her crew of astronauts. Her sheep is already in a space suit.
I didn't have the heart to tell her that she really doesn't need the flag on this mission. The astronauts are not visiting the moon or any other planet. They are delivering supplies to the international space station. That doesn't sound nearly as exciting as what Rooster has planned for her mission. According to Rooster her couch shuttle is on the launch pad and it is ready to go. She has done seat belt checks with Mr. Sheep so everything looks good to go.
