A friend told me about a small county airport giving free flying lessons to kids, and I immediately signed EJ up! When we got there, there were some technical difficulties (which I won't go into here for sake of their sensitive legal nature), but in the end everything worked out and it was the best experience! This is EJ and some of his friends and some of their friends:
First, an instructor...instructed.
Then EJ and his friend got to go up in a plane! I love how this photo captures some of EJ's excitement. I honestly thought he could have bounced out of his shoes!
There were more technical difficulties, because both boys wanted to sit up front. It all worked out in the end.
Take-off, landing, and the excitement after:
Each kid got a certificate, entering their name in the World's Largest Logbook in Wisconsin. It has their name and date, what kind of plane they flew, and their pilot's name.
Pretty. Awesome. Stuff.
Who am I, you ask?
In 2006 I had a stroke, and every day my husband encourages me to use my remaining brain cells to the best of my ability. I love to organize, make crafts, and go on adventures (safe ones). I hope that through my blog posts, you will be encouraged to accept and make the best of challenges God throws at your life.
