James and I set out a little earlier than usual for summer school this morning. This weekend a big hot air balloon show is happening in our town, and last year we stumbled on the test launch the morning before the main event and were treated to the sight of many beautiful and colourful ascensions.
This year, we caught the last two balloons to lift off. I am calling them the Panda ...
... and the Purple Thing (which James calls the Cat):
James was so excited, because we could see balloons floating in the sky on our way to school. He talked all the way about seeing the balloons and how they were following him to school. It was very cute.
After all the stress from end of February through last week's illnesses, we needed a lift to our spirits!
