On Saturday morning, Daddy and "the bigs" headed out to the Carolina BalloonFest, always held in the third weekend of October. This would be our first visit to the event.
We earned some great school-time behavior from the kids in anticipation of this outing! Mary drew us a picture to keep us inspired to stick to our schoolwork all week.
|This gorgeous vision reminds me of the little town in which I grew up, which was home to much ballooning.|
Chris and the kids were out the door by 6:30 a.m. in order to be there for the launch because, if one is going to go, being there for the launch is really cool.
