We were outside this morning on the lookout for the Space Shuttle Discovery. We were so excited to have it fly by at tree-line!
Naturally we had to take a million pictures as it flew by!
A little while later we went inside to watch the drama unfold on NASA TV as it landed at Dulles Airport!

We talked a lot about the space shuttle program and watched the final launch of the Space Shuttle Discovery on you-tube.
It’s final 12+ day mission launched just over a year ago on Feb. 24, 2011. It flew 39 successful missions over a 27 year span.
You can watch the Discovery’s Final Launch here. The video is about seven minutes.
What an amazing homeschooling day!
