Space Camp

Rachel had the opportunity to attend Space Camp at the NASA Center in Huntsville, Alabama last weekend. She was gone three days with her fifth grade class and reports that it was a fabulous time. They were shot straight up into the air 100 feet at 60 mph, slept in habitats, built model rockets and had a mock mission, which included a lunar landing. Rachel played the part of flight director from the control room. "It was all so cool", she says.

Nope, still an artist at heart - but, she loved it!
