The kids figured out how the controls work and were absolutely amazed to see the ailerons and elevator move. THEY were doing that! In a real life airplane!
We pretended we were taking off over the mountains. Turn left - now turn right! Good job!! Ok, how do you take off? Yes! Now we're climbing ... we're over the mountains ... we're too high! WAAAH!! Descend, descend!!
So many smiles and squeals of delight. I just loved it.
It was a special day for all the kids involved, and I'm told they will be telling all their friends about it on Monday. Makes me smile :)
