solstice program

Friday night we took the kids to a Solstice Celebration at one of the area children's museums. They had a really great storyteller who used tons of audience participation both in telling stories and singing songs (J and his friend D even got to dress up and help tell one of the stories!), there was a planetarium program about the Solstice and traditions that celebrate the return of light, there was a bonfire and s'mores making, and they set up telescopes for viewing of the cosmos. One telescope was so strong, we could clearly see 4 of Jupiter's moons (which J named for us). They also had a couple of crafts available for the kids, but we were so busy with the other things we didn't even bother to participate in those. Fun event!
