The Final Frontier*

So what’d you do last weekend? I finished making the solar system, that’s what I did.
When Zack moved into his Big Boy Bed, we decided he would have a space themed room, largely because a) Mommy’s painting skills are adequate to that task and b) there is a wicked awesome night light available that does moon phases and he loved it. It’s actually taken me a while to get it done, due to my current physical limitations and sometimes choosing to do things with the kids instead of just for them. Even now it’s not done — I’m going to get some glow-in-the-dark paint and stencil actual constellations around the whole room, and also I need to get Jupiter and Saturn’s moons in there, and I’m not totally happy with Saturn’s rings, either, so I may play with them a little, too — but last weekend I did get the very last planet painted (Saturn — I went in order of difficulty), so I wanted to share some pictures.
I decided the ceiling fan/light would represent the sun and kind of just went from there:
