Up, Up and Away

Early this evening, I went out the backdoor to get some wood for the fire when I saw a hot air balloon ready to touch down in the field. I hurried in and shouted with excitement to come outside quickly. I scrambled for the camera while Pipsqueak scrambled for shoes, we raced down the hill.
They wanted to move the balloon across the field and closer to the truck, so they offered Pipsqueak a tethered ride. She was incredibly excited since she was just telling me a couple of days ago that she wanted to ride in a balloon. They went up maybe thirty or forty feet while they moved the balloon about 500 yards. Afterward she was presented with a picture of the balloon to take to school tomorrow and a bottle of champagne.
We told them they can drop in anytime.

It's a good thing she stayed tethered, otherwise she could've been on Good Morning America!

Pipsqueak is magic. She says she wants it and the universe just throws it at her. I hope she only uses her powers for good, or every kid who ever picked on her is in a lot of trouble.

I do believe Jen understands Pipsqueak completely. Long may it continue (and long may I be able to conjure what the Universe cannot).
