A Day for Errands and the Stennis Space Museum

Wednesday, February 21, 2007

rain 0 °F

Rain! Started to rain overnight and we had our bedroom slide out, which means that the raindrops were hitting the aluminum roof a few feet above our heads, so did not sleep well. Next time we go back to putting the slide in if rain is in the forecast.

After being so busy with Mardi Gras activities the last two days, we relaxed in the RV most of the morning. (Joe was not bothered by the rain and slept til 10).

During the middle of the day we went over to the Stennis Space Museum for their tour and then looked at the museum there. Nothing too exciting, but it was interesting at times. They test the engines for rockets and the space shuttle there, plus it is the headquarters for the Naval Meteorogy and Oceanography commands. IMG_5577.jpg

We make a stop at Wal-Mart before heading back to the RV for some schooling and dinner. It's a math day for Joe....we've been taking one day each week to focus on his math. We take about two hours in the RV to cover a chapter and then the next day he has a set of problems to complete to make sure he understands all the concepts of that chapter.

Since we're in New Orleans, we watch a 2 hour History Channel movie on the War of 1812 (last battle of the war was fought in New Orleans). It was actually very interesting and well done. I had recorded a bunch of shows from the History Channel before we left to use on the trip. Some of them relate to what we're visiting and others are simply interesting shows.

Of course we have to finish homework and the History Channel tape by 9:00, when LOST is on TV...TV shows are an hour earlier now that we're in the central time zone...which I discovered Sunday night wwhen I turned on the TV at 9 to watch Desperate Housewives, only to find it airs at 8pm in this time zone :-(
