Your Pilot For This Flight Will Be...

Did you know we have a flight museum in Dallas...and that it's actually pretty cool? Since we didn't have Kindermusik today, Dana suggested we check out the Frontiers of Flight Museum at Dallas Love Field. I'm always up for trying something that might keep the kids entertained. Mack loves airplanes so I though he would have fun. From the moment we entered the building he was amazed. Every now and then you would hear a gasp from him and he would point and yell "airplane" over and over and over (there were a lot of airplanes in this place:). Sharla and her trio, Charlotte and Shelby, and Dana and her twins all joined us. We will definitely be going there again. Everyone had such a great time.

The only one missing from our great group this morning was Grace. She was in Conductive Education. She goes every morning for 3 hours (more on this later). I felt kind of guilty about scheduling a play date without her. I want to experience everything that Mack and Sophie do. I don't want her to be left behind. But I feel even more guilty that I was able to really enjoy time with Mack and Sophie. Did I just admit that? Am I an awful mom?
I love flying!!!

Sophie and Shelby look out the window as Andrew makes his way in.
Sophie takes a ride on Jay Jay the Jet Plane.
Andrew and Caroline dive into the tree house.
Sophie bailing out the back of the plane.
Ava says "everybody out!" Actually she didn't say that. She is way too sweet for that.
Charlotte and Shelby in the air traffic control tower. They were the only ones brave enough to climb it.
Mack taking control.
Sophie and George in the cockpit. I think they should get married one day...whatcha think Sharla?

You are human! I suggest that you don't beat yourself up over things that (to me!) seem harmless in the big scheme. You are taking care of all of you kids the best way you know how, and that's very admirable!!! By the are entitled to a smile every now and again. :) kelly

That looks like a really fun place for kids!

Don't feel guilty... I'm glad you had some time with Mack and Sophie. They probably needed it as much as you did.

I do want to hear more about the Conductive Education. I have a friend in your area that is looking for CE for her child.

Wow looks like fun! The guilt is hard hey? You need days like this to have time with Mack & Sophie so they can enjoy their Mom too. It's such a hard juggle.
