Silver Dollar City

We got comp tickets for all of us at silver dollar city!

It is what we needed, a day for just play.

It is what all of us needed.

The kids have had a blast, and I am pretty sure the interactive learning playground was better physical and occupational therapy as anything else, and definitely the best play therapy ever.

They are learning signs like “wait” and “my turn”/”your turn” and “quiet” and practicing manner signs like “please” and “thank you”, so it was a fun test for me to take my ears off for a while during the time we were doing rides.

It was also a nice rest.

I found myself with eyes searching the crowds for words on hands.

We also are practicing not running off, and staying together as a group.

The new jogging stroller has a safety strap to attach to your wrist so the stroller doesn’t get away from you when you are running.

I told them it is called “the strap of shame”, and anyone who doesn’t stay with the group gets to wear it and stay with me and the stroller for as many minutes as you are old.

Nobody wants the strap of shame.

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
