I’m very excited to start the school year by sharing this guest blog entry from one of our new fifth graders, Logan. Do get in touch if YOU have adventures you’d like to share too!

My family went to the Kennedy Space Center on July 5th.  It was just before the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo Moon Landing.Screen Shot 2019-09-01 at 1.29.48 PM.png

Apollo 11 was launched July 16, 1969.  The space ship landed on the moon on July 20, 1969.

Neil Armstrong was the first man on the moon.  He said “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.” On our bus tour to the Apollo building, we saw alligators and a really cool bald eagles nest. When we got to the Apollo building, we got to see a rocket that was as big as a warehouse.  The Apollo rocket was so big.  They all the badges from each Apollo mission all alongside the rocket.  We bought all the badges for our house as souvenirs.

We went to the Space Shuttle Atlantis building. We got to see the Atlantis space shuttle.  It was so cool. We took so many pictures.  There was a great presentation about Atlantis and then the door opened up and you walked into the room where Atlantis was.

My favorite part was the Shuttle Launch Experience. We got to feel all the stuff you would actually feel if you went in an actual space ship.

We also got to see a Mars Rover.  Screen Shot 2019-09-01 at 1.29.06 PM.png

There is so much to do that we did not get to see it all.  I want to go back and do the Astronaut Training experience and see the Heroes and Legends.
