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.
