The kids are practicing for the 18 hour plane trip

Madison, Kyler and Kendi have been playing airplane to get a feel for what it's going to be like on the airplane.  They asked me to set the kitchen timer for 18 hours.  Needless to say, they didn't make it that long!

Kyler is the pilot.  Notice there is 1st class, 2nd class and 3rd class (as the kids called them.)  Madison and Kendi are in 3rd class.  I asked them why they weren't sitting in 1st class and Madison explained that they don't have enough money to fly 1st class.   I think it's humorous that even in their wildest imaginations, they still can't afford 1st class!


  1. It's good to practice reality. :)

    Prayer for you as the end draws near to the start of the new. :) What did you ever find out about the Contico lockers???

  2. That is hilarious! They are getting used to reality...how mature of them! You can tell them they will have first class tickets to Heaven!

  3. Liz, you're so funny!!

  4. What a bittersweet scene, Jenny! Praying for you as you close this chapter and start a new one.
