Today is the last day of summer and tomorrow will be the first day of Fall.  If you can balance an egg on a flat surface or a broom on it’s end or bristles and take a picture with you in it or your name and date written on a sheet of paper I will give you five bonus points.  It is a fun activity.  Remember we will have equal day and equal night tomorrow because the Sun will be shining directly on the equator.  I will have the glossary of the red book up in a few minutes for your big 50.  Have a great weekend.
