Field Trip..

Well so far this year we have been on three field trips- not including the three plays we have seen at the high school. We went to the symphony first, then the pumpkin patch (but me and 6 of my students had a stomach virus, I was at the field trip they were at home), and today to the Children's Theater. We saw Charlotte's Web. On a field trip day, the kids come into the room bouncing off the walls. On the ride there, I sat my my little child who (from previous readings) you would know can not sit alone. He asked me questions like "Is that the Brooklyn Bridge??" (in reference to the shelby street bridge), "Why is there a short bus on the interstate?" And many more exciting and important questions. When we arrived at the theater, there was of course an overload of staff. They were telling us where on the pew we needed to sit. I had reached a point where I had to tell the lady that certain children have to sit near me- no matter what. While I was trying to explain this, I look up and my sweet child was rolling down the aisle as you would roll down a hill. I couldn't help but laugh and try to correct him. I am sure the lady thought I was a really great teacher. He talked to me the whole time. As we were being rushed out to the bus, seven children of course needed to use the bathroom. I didn't even worry about finding the boys bathroom- we all used the girls. We finally made it to the park to eat and play. And as always, I had a sleeping babies on the way back to school. I would have loved to join them if I didnt have to the responsible adult!
