Not-So-Total Eclipse

IMG_9640

Yesterday E.V. went to half a day of school, as did Cricket, in honor of the Great American Eclipse. In our city, north of Atlanta, we were expected to get 97% coverage, which seemed super exciting. Thankfully we were not totally fanatical about the event because it turns out, when it comes to solar eclipses, it’s all or nothing. #hindsight

So, it turns out, our 97% really just felt like a cloudy day, but it was still cool to look up through our eclipse glasses (thank you, Ryan’s mom!) and see the changing shape of the sun. Plus, we are very fortunate to have great friends that we shared the afternoon with. Our kids ran around while the sun waned and waxed, and when there was an air of disappointment, an impromptu slip ‘n slide party cheered everyone up. (Although E.V. was sore that she wasn’t allowed to take off her shirt like her friend, Ethan. #girlprobs). No one went blind, too, so bonus. ;)
