Flyin' High

“Do not be afraid, for I am with you and will bless you!"
Genesis 26:24

On Sunday, Kiddo's Sunday School class went on a flying field trip. They had been waiting for weeks for this day, and it FINALLY arrived!

Their teacher, Mr. G., is a licensed pilot who owns his own canoe business along with his own private plane. So, he offered to take the kids for a FLY around town. They all got to see their houses from high above, except Kiddo....he wasn't sure where our house was. (lol) HOW COOL IS THAT? :> )

From left to right: J, K, A, K, C, Sweetpea, Mr. G., and Kiddo.

Mr. G. giving instructions
Kiddo and his close friend, Sweetpea, got to go up together. :> )
"Hey, look at me....they actually fit!" LOL I love you, Kiddo! :> )
"Co-pilot to Control......Come in, Control......Do I really have to do this?"
(she says behind gritted teeth) lol Just kidding
Born to fly.....I love you, Kiddo!!!
Here they go..............
Sweetpea, waving.............goodbye? LOL This was her first time in a plane.
She did FANTASTIC! :> )
Waiting for clearance from the tower.....

Hello Laura,

What a great adventure!

When we only had two children a group of pilots at what was then McClellan AFB were giving free rides, so my husband, our children, and I all got to go up together.

YIKES! I'm so afraid of heights that I would have to repeat that scripture again and again!
