Sending Off Our Balloon Wishes...

This weekend the kids and I sent off balloons with wishes attached to them. This is a family tradition of Stephanie and Christian Nielson. This young couple was recently in a private plane crash (see blog below). Her sister, Jane, asked readers to send off balloons at a scheduled time, in honor of them.
Not only did I feel like I was contributing in the well wishes for this lovely couple, but it was such a fun experience with the kids. We each wrote notes (C, had a little help) with wishes for a speedy and full recovery. However, the balloons were not sent off into the sunset without an extra wish...or two! R added an extra wish to meet the Jonas Brothers and C wished for a "sanitation street sweeper"! Aahhh...to be a kid again!
