I love looking at the night sky and am thrilled that I now live in an area that is dark enough to see the stars from my back deck! I remember being less fortunate when the last lunar eclipse occurred. My daughter begged me to let her stay up and watch the eclipse. The problem was that we had to drive several miles out of town to see it, so we piled in the van, just the two of us, and had a “Mommy and daughter” viewing.

So, this is new and uncharted waters for us! We have decided to foray into the blogosphere and are still finding our sea legs. Please go easy on us as we begin this journey with you. We are Becky and Charlie. I have always wanted to be a Becky and so have decided to go by my middle name here. My husband and co-writer was always called Charlie Brown in school, so thus it has stuck. We have two children: DD11 in fifth grade and DS7 in first grade.
