First and Third!

Wow! Our 3 week summer break has come and gone (thanks year round schedule!) That was sure quick. Now it is back to early bedtimes (which I really don't mind) and making sure we are up and organized by 7:30!

Connor and Carson just finished their first week of school. So far so good! They both have great teachers and they have good friends in their classes.

Here they are having their traditional "I want to take a picture in the front yard" picture!

Carson at his classroom door. Carson has been really excited for school. Each night around 7:00 he asks if it is time for bed and then he lays out his clothes for the next day. We will see how long this lasts!

Connor at his fancy desk equipped with a computer! I can't believe he is in 3rd grade. I am excited to see him learn new things this year.

Here's hoping for a great year!

The Goon....a.k.a.....Lagoon!

Last week we headed to Lagoon for our yearly visit! My kids love Lagoon and it is such a fun, clean, family friendly amusement park. We always have an enjoyable time.

Jace and Katelyn going for a ride!

Happy to play in water!

Now for the exciting part......

Those of you who know me, know, that I don't have an adventurous bone in my body! I am easily afraid of anything thrilling! But my mom has been dying to see someone she knows go on the Sky Coaster. So this time she begged me to go, along with Carson and Kelly. I don't know what on earth possessed me to agree, but I did!

Here we are being hoisted up 150 feet into the sky. I closed my eyes at first and when I quickly opened them I told Kelly we must be to the top and he said "uh, we aren't even half way yet!" Too late to change my mind!

On the count of 3, Kelly pulled the rip cord and down we went!

I will admit that it was pretty fun and I am glad that I overcame my fear and did something exciting!
Kelly was pretty proud of me too!

My kids loved all the rides, especially Kate. She was pretty sad when all the rides were closed and it was time to leave.

Here's to next year and more fun at The Goon!
