my pictures have hit the jr high school

hey guys the coolest thing has happened the principal at one of our local jr high schools has a son on my sons football team and we got to talking about the pics i have ben takeing so i asked him if any of his science teachers might want to share a few with the kids and said sure so i emailed him some about a couple weeks ago not expecting any feedback on them and i got an email today this is the email Hey Spike,
My 8th grade Science teachers have been doing a unit on the solar system this week and have used your picture in their lessons. They wanted me to tell you how thankful they were. The kids are used to seeing pictures that are in textbooks or online. It was neat for them that a "real person" took this picture from his own telescope here in Denham Springs. Thanks again and keep those pics coming. They loved it!

That is so great you've must have been psyched. Kid's interest, well maybe, but I bet he was pretty D-proud of his old man. Marc
