  1. Hi Corinna
    Love your super positive attitude to life.
    You obviously have an extraordinary husband and equally four extraordinary children.
    Super mum, super wife. What else can I say.
    Great effort here.

  2. Looks easy and tons of fun! I bet climbing to the top of our little playground would give the parachute even more distance to fly. This would also be a great vision activity for tracking up and down with my 5 year old! Thanks for sharing!(stopping by from Afterschool Blog Hop!)
