On Friday during summer school, I along with my 5th and 6th graders watched the last shuttle launch. Thanks to http://www.survivingateacherssalary.com/ for showing me the wonderful link. I had no idea that it was the day for the launch. Facebook isn't always bad :)

Here is the launch as it was happening.
I told my students that some day someone was going to ask them where they were when the last shuttle launched. I am glad that we were apart of history. Can you guess what our writing topic will be on Monday? :)
