No More Space Shuttles

Aw, I am so sad. Really. I love love love the Space Program. I was so obsessed with it when I was younger that I truly was that kid that wanted to be an astronaut when I grew up. I was so into it that my parents sent me away to Space Camp at Cape Canaveral. However, I wish that I could re-do that week of my life. Who knows, maybe I would have done better in math or something down the road. But, whatever, you take the road you are given, right? Anyhoo! It was so much fun and seeing a shuttle launch in person was on my bucket list. I guess that will never happen now. Maybe my wish of going to space one day will, though. They said on the news that in 4-5 years they will have the commercial space shuttles. I wonder how much those tickets are... My mom said that you would have to probably be this guy to get a ticket:

Probably...but a girl can dream...
At least my son was able to watch a space shuttle take off this morning. It was his first shuttle launch to see on TV and his last. Crazy! He watched the whole thing and never took his eyes off of the TV. He watched as the rocket boosters blasted. He had that "wow" look on his little face when it lifted off. He even said, "Whoa!" when it was waaaay up in the sky. I told him that the shuttle was going to space to look at all the stars and stuff. He ran to the back door to see if he could find it in the sky! He's a funny guy, isn't he? It's pretty amazing that he will see even more fantastic forms of transportation within the next decade. He's going to be pretty excited. We are probably going to be taking a trip to the Huntsville Space and Rocket Center soon. He is going to love that! For the time being, we will be coloring space pictures today. If you want to have a mini space party, click here for coloring pages.

For now, good luck and Godspeed STS-135! Come home safe!!
