We took our telescope to west Texas this week. Since we are studying astronomy, I thought it would be a perfect time for stargazing out in the country, away from the city lights. I composed this song to commemorate the special time the kids and I shared out under the Texas sky.

It is to be sung to the tune of "Deep in the Heart of Texas." A Texas accent is optional (for some people, not me!) and adds additional flavor to this meaningful song...

The stars at night
Are big and bright
But Mom can't wo-o-rk the telescope.

We looked and looked
We checked the book
But it was n-o-o-t what we'd hoped.

"Hey, I can't see!"
"Oh, here.. let me..."
Good grief, what a-a-re we doin' wrong?

The sky we scanned,
I had it planned
'Cause I'm a Ga-a-alileo Mom!

We all took turns
But 'twas a blur
It's harder th-a-an it oughtta be

"Hands-on" science
Could lead to violence
In the name of astonomy!
