Serendipity Sunday ~ The Comets Look to the Sky!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Realty ~ 512.750.6899

Last Monday on April 8th, 2024 the whole country was obsessed with the solar eclipse! I’ve read many posts where school classes, businesses, the general public and just about everyone took time to witness this phenomenon. What an opportunity! The next one won’t be visible until 2044. The general consensus was it was utterly amazing!

Canyon Creek Elementary (The Comets) took full advantage of the teaching moment for its students and I was thrilled to hear the excitement they witnessed.

“We have more possibilities available in each moment than we realize.”

Good morning Dorie. My grandson's school made a big deal of it and required parents sign a permission slip for the children to view the eclipse. My grandson was in awe. Enjoy your day.

The children must have loved that day! Nothing as exciting as sitting outside with your class instead of inside in the classroom.

Hi Dorie- what a special day it was!!!  Buc-ee's donated viewing glasses to my great-nephew's school.  My niece and her husband drove to Austin to get a better view.

I love that photo where the kids are all on their backs at the curb.  That'll be a great memory for them.
