I am so excited to be joining up with The Educators’ Spin On It and Little Wonder Days to bring you the After School Link-Up each Sunday!!

The After School Link-Up is THE place to share your posts for school-aged kids, ages 5 and up!  You can share any fun and learning you did after school including crafts, activities, playtime, and adventures!  Anything that you’re doing to enrich your children’s lives after their normal school time or on the weekend, we’d love for you to link!!

Each Sunday, in addition to hosting the link-up, I’ll be sharing a few of my favorite posts that were shared on the After School Link Up from the week before.  So, be sure to share a post or two for your chance to featured!!

Our Nascar Adventure

This week the kids and I are happy to be tagging along with my husband on a work trip to Florida.  We left home a few days early so we could do a bit of exploring as a family before my husband will have to work.  Today we stopped at the Daytona International Speedway in Daytona Beach, Florida.

My oldest, who will be 5 in less than 2 weeks, remembers that we tried to stop here last year on a trip to Florida, and we arrived right as it closed for the day.  He was so disappointed!  But he was THRILLED that we were able to stop with plenty of time today.

We even took a speedway tour and were lucky enough to see a few race cars doing some practice laps!

He was completely enthralled with everything and asked tons of questions.

Later in the day I asked him what had been his favorite part of visiting the race track.  His little face scrunched up in thought for a few moments, and then he said, “Pretty much all of it.”

I’ll take that! 🙂
