The Solar Eclipse

I don't know if you heard, but there was a solar eclipse a couple weeks ago. 😉

Ellie had already started school when the solar eclipse happened, but she didn't miss it because her school gave all the kids protective glasses and took them out to see it.

Here at home, Zelda and I used our solar glasses to see it, too. Zelda was content with looking at it one time (right at the peak of the eclipse), but I was out there every ten minutes or so from the start of the eclipse all the way through the end.

We tried a couple different ways of looking at it, too. Here's with our binoculars (big side pointed at the sun, small side pointed at the ground).

And here's our kitchen strainer:

And here's a picture of it Jason took with his phone at work:
