I just "happened" to be looking at the Kennedy Space Center Website the other day and realized that the May 25th Space Shuttle Launch had been moved to May 31. We were really praying that we could see a launch this summer and the door was opened wide. We considered leaving a week earlier, but with both of our work schedules it was going to be too tight. I'm fairly certain that He didn't delay the Space Shuttle launch specifically for us, but He did lead me to the site on that particular day and make it possible for Sean to secure the tickets. It's amazing to see God work out these kinds of details.
Sean called promptly at 9 am Monday morning and reserved our tickets for lunch with an astronaut and front row seats (okay, it's really 6 miles away but the closest that anyone is allowed) to the launch. Tickets sold out within minutes. We are thrilled beyond belief!! This is going something that the children will remember forever. There is an age restriction so I'll be back at the beach house with the younger two. I'll be able to see it from there but without all the bells and whistles that NASA provides.
I also discovered today that McDonald's has out some Spring Treat coupons for sale. $1 will buy 12 coupons for various items such as ice cream, apple dippers, kid size drink, small fry, cookie, apple pie. These are intended for children 12 and under. Usually these coupons expire within 90 days. These, however, have an expiration date of 12/09. Needless to say, I picked up several which will come in handy when we are traveling about this summer.
