Isaac behind the controls with the pilot.
This is our nice, sweet, little town and the lake. It almost looks like the end of the world - some people think it is!
And this is the maze from the air. Wow! We never thought it would look so close to what we were trying to make it look like. Can you see the tractor and the smoke coming out of the smokestack? Can you see the 2009? How about the two kids on the trailer? The bridge is one side of the body of one of the kids. Yes, you could memorize it by looking at it but if someone really wants to do that, well, that's just fine. It might take some of the fun out of it but then again, once you're in there it's easy to get mixed up.
Overall, Arthur said he didn't think he ever wanted to be a pilot as his stomach didn't really enjoy the ride. Priscilla on the other hand thought it was wonderful which is why this morning we let her go with Arthur to be interviewed on the air, on our local radio station. She added the enthusiasm to the interview and it went really good. We love free advertizing!!
Tonight we have our "trial run" with a bunch of church friends and some homeschool families. Please pray for us with our big day starting tomorrow. To say we are nervous is an understatement. Horrified would be more like it!!! So please do pray for calmness in our spirits, that no one would get hurt, that everyone would have fun, that it wouldn't hail (It did that last year when we had the homeschoolers out on a hayride!), and that people would come. We talked about praying for a specific number but decided to pray that we wouldn't get so few as to fail, or too many to handle. It's so nice to leave it all in God's hand and leave the results up to Him!
