We got word that hot air balloons were taking off from parks all over town this morning, including our own local elementary school park. The school encouraged parents to watch with their kids and allowed school to start late this morning in honor of the hot air balloon.
So we made it to the park bright and early, or dark and early in this case around 7:40. My mom met us over there and of course I forgot Calvin's jacket. Calvin, Lucie and I watched mostly from the car while the older four kids and my mom were right in the thick of it.
