Flight Director For A Week

Neeley and I just returned from a week in Huntsville, Alabama, where she was able to attend Space Camp at the U.S. Space & Rocket Center.

Neeley was one of sixteen chosen to receive a scholarship through the Air, Space & Missile Defense Association to attend for the week. Go Team Armstrong! Here's the link to a write-up about the group on the Army website.

Neeley was chosen as Flight Director of her group for the week and had a "blast." :) I have begged and begged her to write about her experiences here but she isn't having any of that. I'm sure the experience sounds way cooler when she tells it. LOL She just said she got to live like an astronaut for a week and I guess that's enough. :)

I got to hang out in the hotel and enjoy some much needed downtime, and spend time with Nana & Papa! :) It was such a good time!! While Neeley was at camp, we got to enjoy some good eats and good shopping in the ol' USA. And that makes my heart happy!!

Now if we can just get back on Germany time, we'll be good. Neeley slept until well past noon today and I felt like I could have laid there forever. :) It's crazy to think this was the first time for us to be back in the States in over two years. Wow!

My son has always wanted to go to Space Camp. That looks like a lot of fun!

Oh my goodness. Space camp is every kid's dream, even if they don't like space. My husband would absolutely die if our daughter got to go to space camp. Awesome experience for Neeley and sounds like a great trip for Mom too!
