Lily Is Going To Space!

Lily applied for and was accepted into Reach for the Stars Space Camp! She and her friend, Zoe, are part of a group of 32 kids from Minneapolis and St. Paul.  You can read more about the programs here. Select “Program” at the top for an overview and select “Content” and expand the Science Saturday and Space Camp tiles to see more – Lily is doing both!

We’re helping to raise funds so that all 32 kids can complete this 6 month program that culminates in a six-day trip to the U.S. Space & Rocket Center in Huntsville, Alabama. Space Camp (grades 4-6) students train for and perform simulated space missions! Please check out the Reach For the Stars Give To The Max page here.  Give to the Max Day is 11/15/2018!

Also, if you’d like a token of our appreciation for donating, please check out the crafts here and here and here and let us know if you’d like one!

Here’s a pic of Lily and the rest of her crew!

And (since we’re proud of it) you can see the acceptance letter here.

X-ray week for Lily

Lily’s having a growth spurt so her doc did a bone age x-ray last Wednesday (normal)

Then she slammed her hand in the basement door on Saturday and today we had to x-ray the same hand again! Weird, right?! She doesn’t have any obvious fractures but needs to wear the splint just in case.

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLL

After 2 seasons of no scores, the Sharks (Lily’s soccer team) finally scored a goal, in the last game of the second season.  And it was Lily that scored it!  “Elation” falls short of the screaming!

 

If there are any Sharks that see this, Thea’s name is Lily, but we called her Thea (short for Dorothea which is her middle name) because there was already a Lily on the team!

 

Aqua Girl

Lily put together her own costume for CVA spirit week Super Hero Day, including a pair of my old boots, which she wore all day. Impressive! I guess warm blood is her other super power. She’s like Elsa… “the cold never bothered her anyway”
