I spent the weekend on the road: sitting in the car, sitting in the pee-wee football stands, sitting in a hotel. I had a lovely getaway. And, I’m so happy to be back home again. Here’s my list in no particular order:

[icon name=”rocket” class=”” unprefixed_class=””] Rocket Clubs and newspaper assignments. Without the newspaper assignment I would never have met some fellow science geeks, saw adults and children bonding over rocket blasts, or met a new writer friend. Wonderful.
