We are so busy. Like, so busy that I am sitting here at midnight blogging because I don't want to forget these days. But I'm telling you they are cram packed right now. School is in full swing and there is a lotta math happening. I am willing to bet I am muttering mathematical jibberish in my sleep. We are giving British football a whirl (more to follow) and we are seeing as much as we can on days off. Which brings me to these pictures, totally out of order with other recent trips, but since these are fresh and I am still smiling I am starting here.
It's my blog. I can wreck it up however I want right?
There were about a million and one things we should have been doing this weekend. Laundry figured prominently among them. Instead, we decided to take the children to a function at the flight line. They toured the fire trucks and got to spray the hoses.
At the end of the presentations they got to get up close and personal with this beauty. She helps drive other birds off the runway to keep them from getting caught up in the airplane engines.
Funny note of the day - the littles were really nervous about climbing up into the fire truck. But then they ran to the front of the line to pet the giant bird with the wicked talons who spreads her wings over your head on command. No explaining some things <g> Guess we're outdoorsy.
I hope your year is off to fabulous start as well. I have not worked this hard in a lot of years but it feels really good. Everyone is super enthusiastic and while some of these upper level classes are stretching our brains a bit it is a blessing to walking this road together.
