Bye Bye Shuttle

Growing up in southish Florida, the shuttle launches were a big part of my childhood.  We would go out in our backyard to watch them go up.  My favorite one was a night launch, we went over to the beach to watch it, it was simply amazing.  We had debated trying to go see the last launch, but in the end it didn't work out. Because of what happened earlier in the week, we were home with Emma to watch the last shuttle launch in TV.  I really wish that Lily would have been there.  It was such a cool moment and to be able to share it with Emma, made it that much more special.
What a great picture and a historic moment.

Emma moved the chair over so that she could watch the TV.  Shortly after this she moved over to the TV and started to say "Bye Bye shutdle.  Since that day, we have seen the re-runs of the shuttle launch a few times and she has stopped what she was doing and waved and again said bye bye shutdle.  Does she really remember that???  Oh how I would love to live in their brains for just a short time.
