As the airplanes fly above the island the clouds gather. Will they make it back to the hangar before the storm begins?

Fantastic Flyers Excerpt:

The airplanes gazed out of the hangar at the beautiful blue sky speckled with fluffy clouds. Holly, Hawk and Herb decided it was a good time to see how things were going around their little world. The three planes rumbled out to the runway and one by one, took off. Meeting each other just below the clouds the planes decided to visit the beach first. So Herb took the lead. After all, the beach was the bright yellow plane’s favorite spot to visit.


Right away Herb spotted a blue bucket lounging in the sand and smiled. Holly the green plane laughed as she watched the little blue penguins popping out of the waves. They certainly seemed to be having fun. Hawk the red plane enjoyed watching the palm trees sway back and forth, back and forth. The beach was a soothing place for all three planes.


Then the red plane took the lead. Hawk wanted to check on the land of ice and snow. So off the trio went, flying through the sky. The air grew cooler and cooler, and the ground changed to white as the planes approached the land of ice and snow. Hawk smiled as he watched a beluga whale blow water out of his spout. Herb was flying a bit low and nearly was splashed. All three planes laughed. Then there was a splash! A penguin popped up and then dove back down. The little whale followed.

Today’s Meditation: Imagine floating in a tranquil pool, safe and relaxed, as the water rocks you gently.
