Am I the only mom who doesn’t enjoy school field trips? When I taught kindergarten and first grade I hated field trips. Too many things can go wrong when you have that many kids you are responsible for out in public; I was always a nervous wreck. Now that I’m a mom I still have that same dislike for field trips. If I just had one kid to focus on, it probably wouldn’t be so bad, but trying to keep up with six, well, it just becomes a game of counting heads, then recounting, and then trying to find the one or two who have wondered off. BUT, I remember as a kid how much I loved going on field trips and how much I enjoyed them so I put my big girl panties on, slap a fake smile on my face, and try to make the best of the situation.
Yesterday the kids had a field trip to Raindrop Hill. The kids had no idea what I was talking about when I’d tell them we were going on a field trip. I wasn’t too sure how this field trip was going to go and I’m happy to say they did fantastic. Of course I had Tom with me, Ms. Holly Boo, and the other parents helped out too and we didn’t have one issue. All six kids were a little scared at first but after a while they all seemed to warm up to the situation. They loved the animals and talked about petting the bunny all day. Here’s a ton of pictures for you to enjoy! 🙂
