The Daily Dash: August 21, 2017 {#Eclipse2017 Path of Totality}  

* First solar eclipse in over 100 years!

A complete life is the life of a child ~ Oswald Chambers

As you can see, I just mentioned one news story today because, well, the solar eclipse is all anyone is talking about! Lucky for us, Nashville happens to be the largest city in the path of totality, so we don’t really have to do much besides go out into our backyard (though we may go to the agricultural center near us).

That being said, we’ve asked ourselves the question, “Would we have traveled somewhere to see the eclipse in the path of totality if we weren’t in it?” The answer was, most likely, “no”. But since we are, we were happy to buy our glow in the dark t-shirts from Project 615 ?

I’m not sure if today is going to be all the media is making it out to be, but I sure hope so. And yes, school was cancelled for our kids, so they’ll be right by our sides with our ISO approved glasses.

As a weekend recap, our daughter played in her very first volleyball tournament (from about 7a-6p on Saturday) and did well for her first outing. Last night we hosted the entire middle school youth group at our home for an event, and let’s just say, my nerves were not made for such things. It’s one thing to keep my own kids in line, it’s quite another with dozens of someone else’s kids. Still, I pray they felt the hospitality and the love of Jesus despite my need to control the situation and keep lights from breaking and pillow fights from breaking out.
