Two Fridays, Two Field Trips

Two friday's ago, we went to Apple Hill with our homeschool group. They spoke to us about how they picked apples. There was also a nature trail at this farm, the group I went with got lost, and were hiking for about 45 minutes longer than planned. :) 
This last friday, we went to Dixon, where there is the worlds largest corn maze! It is in the Guinness Book of World Records! It took us about an hour to go through it, it was tricky! 

This is the only good picture we took at Apple Hill.

Getting ready!

There were a couple bridges along the way so we could see above the corn.

Here is a picture of the entire maze... :o
We made it!!!!!

Dad's Blog

 After a trip a couple months ago, we came home to dead, brown grass. Dad decided it was time for a backyard makeover! He has made a blog about the process, check it out and see what he is going to do!

Ashley's New Soccer Season

Wow, this is my first post since March! I decided it was probably time for a new one. :) Three weeks ago, my soccer season started! This is my second year playing. I have a new team this year, and it's exciting because a lot of my friends are on it. The first game we won 8-0, the second game we won     3-1, and the third game we won 4-0!

My Team, The Cosmos

Jumping in the Rain!

It has been raining all day today. Mom had this crazy idea for Emily and I to get into our swimsuits and rain jackets and jump on the trampoline. So, we did and it was really fun (and cold). :) It felt really good to get into a warm shower afterword though!  

We can't wait to do it again!

Disney Cruise

Last week our family had the amazing opportunity to go on a Disney Cruise! We left at Port Canaveral, Florida, and sailed in the Bahamas. We had a great time. We  hung by the pool, went to Disney's private island, ate lots of food, :) and just relaxed. Here are some pictures of our trip.
The night before the cruise, when we were in Florida, we went to Medieval Times.  It is  a medieval tournament where there are knights jousting and sword fighting. They are doing all this while we are eating a medieval style meal(with our hands). :)

In front of the cruise ship, the Disney Dream.
Disney's Private Island- Castaway Cay

Donald and Daisy!

While we were at Castaway Cay, Dad and I got in the water with stingrays! (In case you were wondering, the water was NOT warm!) :) We got to feed them and swim with them. It was a really cool experience.
The black things in the water are stingrays.
Every night we received a towel animal in our room. This was our favorite, a monkey. :)
The Incredibles! 
There were beautiful mosaics everywhere!
Gotta have our picture with Mickey!

              We had an awesome time!

The Amazing Flying Sloans!

On Friday we took a very interesting and educational field trip to learn how to Fly!
Yes you read this correctly, we went to a special place that teaches you how to fly.  We went to iFly in Union City (near San Francisco) for a homeschool field trip with other homeschool families and we all tried our hand at indoor skydiving...what an experience.  At iFly we are all educated on gravity, drag, and terminal velocity then we suit up and all get a turn at flying.  Each flight lasts for 1 minute and is aided by and instructor to help with technique, and to make sure we don't fly back home on our own.  We had a great time and look forward to flying again soon.
