Fireball - 08/25/14

  I don't know about you, but the start of school is kicking our collective bums.  Boy, has it been hard setting the alarm, sticking to a morning schedule, getting up and out on time, and having a consistent bedtime.

  Summer seemed to breeze by faster than I ever recall and here we are again... staring smack dab down the barrel of a new school year.

  What's helped us the first couple of weeks is a crazy little song with a catchy big beat.    It's called Fireball.    We are wearing this song out... It's our wake up call, it's our morning anthem, it's our carpool line crusade.  Hubs came in blasting the Pitbull tune the first day of school and everyone popped up out of bed, started dancing and we haven't stopped.  It seems to be the only thing that can get us going in the morning aside from coffee, but I can't give my kids that yet... (or can I?)

   Hope you enjoy coming along as we drop the kids off. (WATCH VIDEOS: Part 1 | Part 2)  We often have animal encounters (turkeys, deer, cows, horses) along the way as you'll notice in the video and as I've referenced in the previous blog Let Your Light Shine

    I'd love to hear how you're settling into a new school year ---- Any tips you have for smooth sailing in the morning or any healthy lunch ideas and of course any secrets to getting your crew up and moving.  Share your quirky moments with me on Facebook or Twitter @StacyCase_ 

     Here's to good grades and lots of laughs!! :)

UNIVERSAL ORLANDO-METAL DETECTORS

Park spokesman Tom Schroder says it's in response to what people are carrying in their pockets these days. He tells the Orlando Sentinel keys, phones and the like have no place on high-speed rides. Guests can store their items in free lockers at the coasters.
