(In case you missed it, an earlier post on this topic was:
"Here's an upcoming event that might interest Christian homeschool teens. It's called TeenPact and is basically a class/workshop that focuses on the legislative and political process with a Christian perspective." Click this link for more: http://oahuhomeschoolmom.weebly.com/blog/teenpact )

7) Registration is open for Lacy Veach Day. For students in grades 4 and above, parents, and teachers of any grade level or subject: This is the 14th annual celebration and special day honoring the life and legacy of Charles Lacy Veach, who grew up in Honolulu with an interest in science, had a distinguished career in the United States Air Force, and went on to fly two Space Shuttle missions.
Astronaut Lacy Veach serves to remind us all that the dreams of today can be forged into exploration and discoveries of tomorrow. While in Hawai‘i, a child once asked Astronaut Veach: "What does it take to become an astronaut?" Veach responded, "You've got to believe in your dreams and you've got to be hard-headed enough to never let them go."
I'm a homeschooling mom of three, enjoying our time in Hawaii and hoping to share some of that experience with you, including ideas, reviews, resources, and information.
