David was able to finish about 1/3 of our living room floor today. Here is a picture of the work in progress.
I took the boys to OMSI tonight to see the lunar eclipse. They both enjoyed it. Christian really liked all the telescopes. We were able to see Saturn through one of the telescopes which was really cool. I had never even seen Saturn except in pictures. We also saw Saturn's moon Titan. When the stars and planets started becoming visible, I was trying to point out Mars to Christian with the instructions they gave us. I pointed to some random star and then Christian pointed up and said "Isn't Mars that orange star up there?" I thought it was funny that a five year old seems to have a better grasp of astonomy then I do. Liam looked at the moon at one point and said Luna. Luna is our cat's name, but I have also been reading him a couple of books about the moon in Spanish. He is not very good about sitting and listening to stories, so it is nice to see he is really listening.
