Man walked on the moon (websites and coloring sheets)

Friday's Grand Connection Fun

In last Tuesday's Grand Connection post,  "One Small Step for Man," I recalled a time long ago when my dad and I stood in our backyard. He pointed into the night sky and said, "Mary, a man is on the moon tonight." That memory was somehow etched in my mind ... forever.

Now would be a great time for us to connect with our grandkids and remind them of what happened in July 1969: Neil Armstrong was the first person to ever walk on the moon!  Here are a couple of websites with more information about this.  I'm going to share them with our grandkids.

I think the younger ones will enjoy this coloring sheets (I've already mailed copies to our long-distance grands):
Moon and stars

Do you know of any good resources about the moon and Neil Armstrong?  If so, please leave a comment below or send me an e-mail. Thanks!

When I look at the moon this month, I not only want to think of the first man who walked on it, but also the awesome Creator who made it!
 3 Praise him, sun and moon,
 praise him, all you shining stars!
             - Psalm 148:3 (NIV)

Have a great weekend,
