Busch Gardens 2010

We were soooo glad to make another visit to Busch Gardens during our summer trip to Virginia Beach -- it was fun introducing Carter to all the rides -- the last time we were there he was barely walking and wasn't able to do much, this time was much different! Plus, they've added the Sesame Street section since our last visit too! It was a wonderful long day with some of our very best friends. 10 hours at Busch Gardens with 8 kids and not one single meltdown! that has to be a record for sure!!!

all the 'big' kids!
Anderson, Ryan, Carter, Anna, Emily & Erin

suprisingly, even the 'big' kids liked buddying up to the characters!

Anderson is a Kindergartner!!!!!

I can't believe this day is actually here! Anderson started school last Monday at Ocee Elementary as a Kindergartner!! He was soooo excited and not the least bit anxious. He could hardly stand the countdown until school started - he was ready!! He has an excellent teacher and walked into his classroom without hesitation on Monday! When he returned home (off the bus), he was rattling off all of the teacher's expectations and rules and he didn't miss a beat! After much deliberation, he is riding the bus - - I've heard nothing but positive comments from all of our neighbors and school friends and I couldn't stand the thought of waking Carter to take Anderson to school. So for now, we're riding the bus until we have reason to not ride the bus. Here's to a wonderful kindergarten year!
