Today we got to take a day off school to play at a waterpark! Er... I mean, today we did a field trip on the physics of fluid dynamics. How does this sound for an excuse to take a day off: free waterpark admission, free parking, free locker and free "breakfast" (means juice boxes, tea & coffee with snacks like muffins, cookies and croissants). The catch? You had to show up at 6:30 to get in. A local Breakfast TV show was being filmed at the waterpark, and they were looking for extras in the background. The Marshwiggles were quick to sign up - the feeling being that an early start was not a big hardship.
We had a great time! It is always fun to hang out in a bathing suit (in a warm or hot environment) and see little gusts of snow out the windows. But there wasn't much window gazing because of all the waterslides and other fun activities. We were also blessed to have some great homeschooling friends to hang out with.
I got to ride on some slides with my favourite daughter, and then with my favourite man. Our younger two enjoyed some of the smaller slides in the children's area. Here is a set of pictures of Ben enjoying one slide:
And here is how we found Ben in the early afternoon:
