Up in the air
Farmguy is on a plane.
The kids are not happy — so we do what we always do when he takes these rare work trips. We watch his flight. It’s highly entertaining and they check it about every 20 seconds. They’re amazed at the speed and altitude. I swear they hold their breath until the little orange airplane lands at the next airport.
I’ll be honest, it’s pretty cool to watch his virtual plane as it travels across the country.
They couldn’t believe he made it in 48 minutes … but that was only the first leg of his journey. Now we’re watching as his little plane heads south, toward the land of white sandy beaches, palm trees and hurricanes (none in sight now, though!).
We don’t like being left behind.
On the other hand, we’re not really beach people. Next year, though, we’re going with him. Or at least joining him, we haven’t decided yet. Next year’s trip will take him to a place that DOES NOT look like this:
Instead … and much to our delight … next year’s trip will take us to a place like this:
This is more our style.
The kids are saving for the trip.
So far, they have $1.87.
