Before I share with you our first day of school, I want to mention that ALL weekends in October a LEGOLAND will be Brick or Treat. Don’t know what it is? Check out our time last year via written post and video blog >>HERE<< If not interested, proceed to “My Son’s First Day of School: LEGOLAND CA” below:
Since the age of 3, my son has been in love and playing with “big people” LEGO pieces. A day cannot go by without touching his collection. LEGO is his life as well as ours, as our living room is dwarfed with a huge LEGO table and our days consist of several popup show-and-tells to share his latest creation.
I had decided to start the school year August 24 but this LEGO Mom was called to attend a media/PR event at LEGOLAND to unveil 2 major attractions opening in 2018. Instead of “No, I must take and pick up my son from school,” I said, “Your first day of school is at Legoland!!!” just before we entered LEGOLAND gates. My son was all smiles. With homeschooling, we get to start and “school” our way, so yes… we had my son’s first day of school at LEGOLAND CALIFORNIA. After my media premier event, we headed for the rides and attractions.
We have been to LEGOLAND many times before but we still have not done everything. We know we will be here many more times in the future but what did we want to accomplish today? We decided that since it was a weekday and the lines were short and the crowds light, that we were going to explore the rides. We have already done the Ninjago Ride and the little boat ride but we have never done the roller coasters and whatever else we come across, so this day would be the day of rides. And in true Jennylou fashion, a vlog:
This is how we spent our 1st day of school for my son. He is all about LEGO so this was quite fitting to start off with the very thing he loves most… because doing what you love should always be part of the learning process.
This video will help you see the different rides at Legoland California and a quick run through of SeaLife Aquarium.
Have you been to LEGOLAND, Chima Water Park, or Sea Life Aquarium? If so, what is your most favorite from them?
