Wednesday was the day I decided to take the boys to Six Flags. This is always a really big day for my youngest son. First of all, he loves rollercoasters more than he loves me. He absolutely cannot get enough of them. Secondly, he loves the fact that he gets to get in free. (His school issues a free ticket after proving he has read a certain amount of pages throughout the school year). I, personally, add another leg to it and make him read more before I take him. Last summer I promised a trip to Six Flags when he finished his last Harry Potter book. He read diligently every day and finished the book. Due to unforeseen circumstances (my not checking the schedule and realizing the park closed at the end of the summer when I decided to finally go!) we did not get there last summer. Believe me, it has been a recurrent theme of my broken promise for a complete year. Not to make the same mistake, I decided to get there early in the summer this time. My youngest has a memory of an elephant and cuts no slack, so none of that this time around!
