James figured out (with a lot of help from google) how to make a pinhole projector and one by one our neighbors started trickling out of their homes to join in on the party (or possibly to see what the crazy inventor was up to this time!)
The good news: IT WORKED!!!
I tried to explain to the boys what a big deal this was. The last eclipse like this happened when Daddy and I were in elementary school (1994) and we remember watching it on the playground. The next one, they say, will be in 2030. Everett, however, seemed quite unimpressed with it all. We took a picture of him with Daddy's invention just in case someday he decides that it was, in fact, a big deal.
So, so, so, way cool.
