More Flags More Fun

A couple of weekends ago, we got a chance to go to Six Flags.  No just any trip, but a trip earned with the cold hard sweat or our kids and their diligent reading.  That's right.  They were rewarded for there fabulous (and voluminous) reading.  And some of the nice teachers provided a couple of tickets for the parents (so that someone would watch the kids while they ran around the park).

Six Flags

First things first, we had to decide what we were going to do while we where there.

Kids Six Flags

Then we had to find all the Loony Tunes character and harass them for pictures.  It was key that we all stick together so that we did not lose anyone.

Six Flags with the family

...especially not the parents.  Good thing there is a place for that.

Sophia Kinder Land

This year Sophia is in public school kindergarten.  How quickly they grow up.  This is a picture of Sophia the week prior to school where they had a Kinder Camp to prepare the little ones to be acclimated to the new big kid environment.

Sophia Heading to School

She did not skip a beat.  She loves her new school and her new friends.  Thank goodness that we didn't have any issues with the change over.  Now if we can just get them ready for the college entry exams...

Kids are back in School 2010

Each Summer, the kids seem to be heading back to school sooner and sooner.  This year the kids started their classes back on July 29th.  Thats right... you heard me:  July 29th?!?!  I figure its only a few years before they are just going to school year round.

First Day of School 2010

I think they were all ready to get back to school.  Don't get me wrong, they did tons of fun stuff this summer.  But I think they also like the structure and hanging out with their school friends.  Sophia was very excited about school since this was her first year at the "Big" school with her brother and sister.

I am sure that it will only be a few weeks before they are back to wishing for the summer... Just like we used to when we were their ages.
