Yesterday, history was made in many places across the U.S., including Charleston, SC. We got to see the total solar eclipse and it was amazing. I posted some photos of it on my Instagram yesterday. We ended up hanging out with our next door neighbors during it and then after the eclipse, some of our other neighborhood friends cruised down on their golf cart and we made an evening of it. (I feel awful today…)
I just love my next door neighbor, Natalie. Her family moved in last Halloween and she and I have become great friends.
This was the best my iPhone could get of the partial and full eclipse. We had a cloud cover right as it went to totality, but thankfully we were still able to see it and it was so cool to see it get dark at 2:45 in the afternoon!
Right after totality, we didn’t get to finish seeing the moon cross over because the clouds were too thick, but I was thankful for all we did get to see!
Yesterday also was my first day back to school (online at Charleston Southern University). It was a nice summer off, but it’s back to reality now. I am only taking the first accelerated semester (7 weeks) this Fall because of our Punta Cana trip in November. Since the course load is week to week for each class’s assignments and quizzes, I would have had to do two weeks’ work for two classes in one week before going to Punta Cana and between my job, household and all the kids’ fall activities, I just didn’t want to put that on my plate. I’ve actually completed the assignments for this week for both classes (Principles of Management & Business Communications) and just have the quizzes to take. I like to stay way ahead of it.
