Solar Eclipse

We have been talking about this day for the past week at school.  I've been super excited about it.  Our district gave today as an excused absence, so we had a lot of kiddos out.  I normally have 19 in my homeroom and I started the day off with 8.  By the end of the day I was at 4.  In one block I had TWO kids.  It was crazy! 

When it came time to watch the eclipse our principal said we could take out our own kids to see it.  I was so excited to share this experience with Max.  I mean...look at that smile.  He was so excited.  I was so excited.  It was freaking awesome. 
Our CST Coach pointed out the shadows, which I honestly hadn't noticed.  When we went outside the second time it was weird.  It was like I was wearing my sunglasses, but I wasn't.  I was able to take Max out again, and watching him look at the sun.  Guys, I can't tell you how cool it was. 
Emma girl had her own party.  She got dressed up, made a craft and had moon pies.  It was a ligit party. Or lit as the cool kids say. 
I'm bummed it's over.  I am excited to hear all about what my students experienced today with their families.  I had some parents send me pictures.  Super cute! 
Happy Monday friends!  I'd say this has been a great Monday!
