Astronaut Barbie's log...Day 4...Last Day and Graduation

Sadly, this will be the last post from Astronaut Barbie at Space Camp. However, do not be in despair. I will continue to blog about the shenanigans that may ensue from my day to day adventures (did you hear that Ole Miss is now ranked #3 in the SEC?!?!?). Day 4 of Adult Space Academy was bittersweet. Team Discovery was still united and an awesome bunch, but it was also the time where we had to say so long for now- until our unicorns will bring us back together for the next adventures.

Day 4 began with meeting for breakfast as a team with a real cool national news shout out to the new generations being excited about the space program and what Space Camp/Academy has to offer. For one of the clips, two of team Discovery's Space Cadets (Lindsay and PC) were shown on a clip taken during our EDM mission. How cool is that?!?!?! 

Shades and I hanging out at breakfast!

I sure found my place with this awesome Disco group!

What a fantastic looking rocket!

Rockets being launched...
I can barely take the suspense... will our egg land safely? Will our rocket launch?
I see out rocket. It launched, shoot how's eggie doing?!?!?

Have our eggs landed safely?!?!?!
Oh, poor eggie... he got a little scrambled :(

Now time to fill out our evals from the time here and give some quotes for posterity!
