Blast off to outer space! Day of astronautic.

My children were absolutely super Stars!
Do you know who was first astronaut? The dog called Laika, and after Belka and Strelka!
April 12, 1961, Soviet cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin orbited Earth in the world's first manned space flight.   That is how it started.
We were  talking about space, stars, comets, rockets and astronauts,
We were playing "Zoom-zoom" song and landed on the Moon, 
We created our space ships....not enough one hour to create an alien... so sorry.
But we had a lot of fun anyway!


do they look fantastic?

Thick what is that./И опять о клещах

Once upon a time... I already mentioned in my post, but I feel like i just call them with my post. I had deal with thick only once, many years ago when i found the tick on my daughter head after visiting a cottage. I knew they are exist, but this winter I had a deal with it three times! During the winter!!!!!Why I accent that? They should sleep in Winter, but not this time - winter was warm enough. Recently I found the post about thick - very detailed and I think very helpful. It is here As I understand meetings with ticks became more and more often.
Встречи с клещами становятся все более часто. за всю свою жизнь я встречалась с клещом однажды, дочка поймала это счастье на даче лет 20 назад. тогда мы справились с помощью нашего педиатра в поликлинике, и честно говоря я даже не помнила как ЭТО выглядит. За эту зиму наша собака принесла троих! с сентября по март.По видимому зима была очень теплой. Одна клещиха разродилась в тот момент когда ее вынимали. сбрызнули место спреем от клещей-в интернете ничего об этом не нашла, ждем-с....Анализ клеща - безумно дорого, после второго, плюнули просто перестали проверять. У кого есть какой то опыт - поделитесь! Здесь полезная информация от «Печеньки»  клик
