On Friday we had first hand experience of the true freedom homeschooling brings. We went to Nashville Shores for the day! A friend has a season pass and had some really awesome coupons. Our family went with my brothers, my mom, Traci (our coupon liason ;D), my sister and her husband and my niece, Emma. We all had a great time and I am pleased that my (very fair-skinned) girls did not turn into lobsters by the end of the day. They were a little pink, but that's to be expected. Ryan went on the half-pipe and it was officially the most hilarious thing I ever saw in my life. I myself sure loved that wave pool, but I forgot how much that things wears a person out! I am a bit sorry I didn't take any pictures from the day, but Ryan and I took full advantage of my mom and had her watch the kids so we could go on some of the rides. :P But the picture on the right is Autumn on the way home. She had such a great time.
