I'm Back

I have been away with our church youth group for a leadership conference. My husband, Neal is the youth minister. I believe that I got in more trouble than the kids. Some of the freshman girls rode with me down to Orlando. My three children rotated riding in the church van. I had all the fun, silly, boy crazy girls. We almost caused an accident on the interstate. They were flirting with whoever they could. Of course I wasn't helping things. It is so much fun to be around children this age. They are always looking for something spontaneous and fun. They keep me young.

While in Orlando we went to Islands of Adventures. I was forced to ride upside roller coasters with my kids. I put on my big girl panties and dealt with it. My feet didn't like being unsupported. I sat on my flip flops. This left my feet in more distress. I rode the entire ride with my toes curled under for some sort of protection. I began the ride holding on to my daughters shoulder harness with her, once i realized we were upside down I let go and to hold my own harness. Like a good Mother, I told her she was on her own. I survived and surprisingly rode it again ( What was I thinking ?) I am glad I pushed my self past my comfort zone.
