Autumn turns 6 and Austin turns 4!

I can't believe our kids are growing up so fast! Since Disneyland had the free birthday day, we decided to try it out and go on Austin's birthday. We did not tell them where we were going and surprised them on Wednesday morning. We got them up about 6:00, picked up grandma and papa and took off for Anaheim. Autumn tried to guess on the way there, but was unsuccessful until we got to the front gates in which she exclaimed...DISNEYLAND????? It was cute. The had no idea what to expect! We tried to get Austin into the Jedi training camp, but weren't able to so since we were in Tomorrowland, we decided to try Space Mountain first. Austin was just tall enough, so their first major roller coaster ride it was! Austin wasn't so sure about it and said he was a little scared of it, but now he says it was one of his favorites! They both enjoyed all the rides and did awesome all day. Thanks to Papa, we got in front of several lines (he has a bum knee and had a wheelchair cart thing which got us to the front). Autumn is going to be a thrill seeker. She absolutely loved the roller coasters.We didn't see everything, but saw quite a bit in one day. It was a very memorable experience and the kids want to go back. We will see about that. Here are just a few highlights from our day!

Well, I guess I've kinda fallen off the blogger wagon since starting facebook! I don't have any pictures to post at this time, but thought I'd at least update our happenings! We are planning the birthday parties for the kids and are looking forward to going to Disneyland on Austin's birthday for the first time (for the kids!) I can't wait to see the looks on their faces when we get there.
Jimmy is having to attend some tough classes in Riverside this last week, this week and 3 days next week. He is learning all sorts of math he never wanted to learn! It has been tough, but I am so proud of him and how hard he has worked to make it!
We are being visited tomorrow by the state which should be really interesting. We are supposed to have 15-16 people coming into our classrooms while we teach...not so sure where they are going to be standing! It should be interesting. I just hope my kids behave themselves tomorrow!
Well, better go get ready to face my day tomorrow!
