“A roller coaster story.....”

Description from Mommykat Bubbly Chick: My oldest foster son Jeremy is wonderful. He loves rollercoasters! this summer I took him to Clementon water park on a day off of school. Last weekend, I arranged respite for my foster kids so I could watch the black belt test.
jer asked to stay home , and askeed for Rollercoaster. on Sathe was back from respite, and sad there were no rollercoasters in his weekend.
I bought him a k'nex coaster- and found out how hard the "simple" thing is to put together, we wound up Duct taping the darn Pieces into place!

    LOL Lorrie—he looks so very sweet. My youngest loves rollercoasters and I feel so bad b/c now he is an adult and I never got to take him to Sandusky Ohio to ride the coasters there. I don’t see duct tape in the pics though LOL The K’nex were just coming out when he was in his mid teens I think so I do remember them.

    Jer is Autistic…so sometimes when he gets an idea he cant let go. I was up all weekend fretting about making it stay. Welcome to the magic of duct tape. (btw- I used neon pink tape:D ) LOL

    Jeanne, that coaster is very cool- it has a motor and can run backwards or forewards. Jeremy loves it!!
    How is Sam? Is she settled back at school?

    hey Lorrie!
    I remember getting K-nex for my nephew a long time ago. Glad they’re still around for Jeremy.

    Sam’s settled, but looking forward to going to PA this weekend. She’ll take the train and we’ll meet her at our friend’s house. It’s a lot shorter for all of us!
    Thanks for asking. Can you believe she registers for next semester next week?! It certainly goes fast!
