It's shuttle launch day!
The preschool class has been very interested in space all summer, but became particularly enthralled once again a couple of weeks ago when the shuttle was scheduled for launch. All of the children are very excited about today's launch. I sent the preschool teachers lots of links about NASA and the shuttle program. One I did not send them is this great one that keeps a day-by-day (I should say hour-by-hour!) log of what is going on. Also, this one about a woman wanting to become an astronaut is featured on Blogger as a Blog of Note -- very cool story!
