The most special moment in this mommy's life occurred last night when Carson told me (out of the blue) that he wanted to ask Jesus into his heart! I wasn't expecting to hear this from him at such a tender age, I had almost avoided that particular conversation with him, because I didn't want him to do something he didn't really understand. But who am I to interfere with the call of Jesus? If there is a knock at the door, we need to open it! Carson understands he's a sinner, he believes Jesus died on the cross to pay for those sins, and he wanted to be sure he was going to go to heaven if he were to die today. He prayed for Jesus to come into his heart, and my heart was bursting with joy!
I'm not sure what Hallie had gotten a hold of here, but it created the perfect goatee! She has a lot of really funny facial expressions, but I wasn't able to capture as many as I hoped during this photo shoot. One thing she does with her mouth that I may never catch is a kind of smirk, like she's trying not to smile. She's a cutie and we love her!

So, yes, this blog is titled "Fischer Kids." But, I had to post about my break from the kids! It's the first vacation I've had in 4 years! And it was fabulous. As we were flying home, I was ready to be with my kids again, but I did start to panic about the cold. And it IS cold. If anyone needs a housesitter in a tropical location, the kids and I are on the job. Dad, we'll see you in a month!
This was my favorite part of Busch Gardens, the roller coaster called Sheikra. That's a 200 ft drop at a 90 degree angle. It was awesome. We went 3 times before moving on.
I did not want to do anything "Disney" without the kids, so we opted to use our one free day to go to Busch Gardens. The weather was gorgeous and we really enjoyed ourselves. It was our first time to Busch Gardens, and I was really impressed with the balance of exciting rides, great shows, and zoo-type areas.
The weather and temperature was so awesome while we were in Orlando! I couldn't have hoped for anything better. I was not expecting to need to cool off in the pool!
