Watching the Solar Eclipse

Solar EclipseThis evening we all watched the solar eclipse in the backyard.  It is not often we all end up in the backyard since it is not accessible for Mik to get out there.  I made the pinhole solar viewer from a cardboard box lid this morning and was ready to watch it when it started, but Mom and Dad did not get my text until 6 p.m. and Mik had to get changed when they got here, so they did not all end up outside until a few minutes before the peak.

It was cool to see the eclipse reflection on the garage.  It was especially cool to get Mik out to do something in the backyard.  If we just got the motorhome out of the driveway, then he could get back there with his powerchair and try out shooting hoops.  Maybe, by the end of the summer and when it starts to cool down again it will be doable, as that is on the list of summer projects to fit in between out kaotic summer travel schedule.
