Saturday we went to see the rideable steam trains.
The kids have a great time. Even waiting in line isn’t too bad when you know what’s coming.
Finally, the trains!
We even got fresh kettle corn.
Everyone had a great time.
Around a year ago, Jon decided Ceili Fey should learn to drive the tractor. Now, I didn’t sweat this much because I know that, in the gear that he had her driving in, the tractor was in “crawl” mode.
More recently, he decided that she should learn to drive the go-cart. I think he was tired of her skulking about, lamenting how the dudes have their Power Wheels to drive and she has nothing. Sooooo, without further ado….
Please do ignore the awful looking buildings in the background. They’re not ours and we have no control over them.
It wasn’t long before she gained a lot of confidence and I gained a lot more gray hair!
Last Friday there was a cancer run as well as some firetrucks and a SWAT vehicle that the kids were able to go inside and check out.
They also had a coloring activity.
They all had a good time. Henry even warmed up to one of the firemen!
Calvin had the greatest time. It was hard to get him to leave.
Ceili Fey started seventh grade and Noah started first grade last Thursday. They were very excited. Unfortunately, Noah refused to cooperate with pictures.
Henry started pre-k Monday. He was excited but very apprehensive. Luckily, he did great. He even wants to go back! Yay!!
Even better, he actually spoke in class when the teacher asked a question. Yes!!!!
