High hopes

Steven is hoping for an amazing internship that goes from January through May of 2012, right after he graduates. I don't know a whole lot about it, and he describes it as "kind of hazy at this time", but it's at the Goddard Space Center in Maryland. In other words: NASA.

Would that not be so cool?

Here's the area where he'd be working and I do so love a road called "Good Luck."

Goddard Space Flight Center

And here's how far he'd be from home. Actually, I have no doubt that he'll get the position, and that he'll accept it.

So my baby will be literally a half a continent away.

Kansas to Maryland

He'll get official word in October, which doesn't give him much time to prepare, but he's a mellow kind of guy about traversing the globe.

That's my boy.

Found: retro

I think I got this booklet at a library sale, but I'm not sure. It's older than me, but of my era, I'd say. It was just too cute, I had to show the whole thing. So if Blogger doesn't block my work*, you can see the whole thing here.

*Blogger doesn't like it when you upload too many images on a new blog right off the bat. They've blocked me before; I take it very personally. But I'm an old lady now!

"American Woman" by Rick Ambrose, 1970

Click the image for a larger view, and feel free to save it for your own use! (It would look great framed, but my printer doesn't have this much yellow ink.)

How Steven Is Spending Some Of His Summer Break

Steve graduates in December from KU's geography program; the Geography Club went to Pinckney Elementary School in Lawrence, Kansas to touch-up the playground's U.S. map. One hundred degrees in the shade, and they got it done...beautifully!
