Aspiring Astronaut

Okay this is my favorite part of this whole gig... I had a lovely surprise this week, from 5-year-old Katie in Missouri, a big NASA fan and growing space enthusiast.

Katie watches my posted videos with her mother, Elizabeth, who has been following the blog since last year's newscasts from UTMB. Both enjoy space topics and science museums, and I sincerely hoped to keep her interest healthy... because patches shouldn't cost nine dollars. ANYWHERE. Sorry. In joke. But you can see the whole story on the sweet post Elizabeth put on her Six Golden Coins blog...

A few days later, they mailed some artwork to me. Isn't this beautiful... great job, Katie! Keep dreaming of the stars!

Katie did an awesome job. I wish there was a blog like this when I was growing up (since back then girls just didn't become astronauts!)
