My kids had the thrill of a lifetime yesterday – thanks to Jimmy!
Jimmy is a home schooled kid who worked with my husband over the summer. Summer’s over and he’s ready to head off to college.
He also has his pilot’s license – and a plane.
He offered to take Jan up for a flight – and said the kids could come, too.
I – of course – started hyperventilating at the thought. You all know how I feel about heights.
Seriously – does that plane look big enough to fly?
I have to admit that I could not watch. I didn’t to totally humiliate my children with another melt-down, so I dropped them off at the airport and went shopping. 🙂
I hoped that a little retail therapy would keep me from thinking about my babies thousands of feet in the sky with a kid who is barely older than my oldest in a plane that looks as small as the models my brother used to put together!
It worked. I stayed relatively calm and composed – until I learned that Jimmy even Matt fly the plane for a little while.
At least their feet were – their heads were still floating in the sky!
Thanks Jimmy – my kids will never forgot this flight! You’re a good guy.
