On August 21st, Dawnielle and I, Adriana, took four of our middle school students to Kings Dominion to reward their hard work over the previous school year.The trip was a blast and a success (since it was the first trip I had the opportunity to lead). Maria was unstoppable on the rollercoasters and Omar, who was nervous to ride some coasters because he’d never ridden on one, ended up riding 4 roller coasters! Dara and Bella took a liking to the alien spaceship rollercoaster (which was a completely indoor and dark rollercoaster). All four kids behaved very well, even when we all got drenched on the River Rapids ride. It was a great way to end the summer and a wonderful time to get to know some of our middle schoolers. I can’t wait to begin working with them in our middle school program!
