On Our Way to See the Solar Eclipse!

Our family is camping in our RV near St. Clair, Missouri, to see the solar eclipse on Monday, August 21st.  St. Clair is one of the cities n the USA that is on the path of “totality”.

This means the moon will hide the sun completely there, so it will be totally dark around 1:30 in the afternoon on the day of the eclipse for over 2 minutes! We are so EXCITED  to be able to observe this!!

In the meantime, my grandsons are having fun taking walks in the woods and enjoying the great outdoors.
