Field Trip!

On Friday, Madeleine and I got to go with her school on a field trip to the Hall of Flame Firefighter Museum. Let me just say I think her school is the coolest. It may be that I just don't know what to expect from pre-K, but I had no idea they would get to go on field trips and her teacher said they will probably do 4 this year. Another cool thing is that when they turn in their little homework assignments (on fire safety or water safety, etc.) they get a coupon for free Chik-fil-A. You know how I am about food, so that scores major points. She might be a little disconcerted that later in her schooling she no longer gets rewarded with food for doing her homework, but we'll cross that bridge when we come to it. Anyway, back to the field trip.She LOVED the bus ride! She was so excited that I think she would have been happy if the field trip started and ended with a ride on the bus. She is quite popular (at least I like to think so) so she had to sit on a seat with 3 other kids for a bit. Four little 4-year-olds on one bus seat is quite a sight. At the musuem, one of the guides read the kids a story about fire safety called No Dragons For Tea before taking them to this old fire truck they could climb and play on. They also had firefighter jackets and hats the kids could try on. They all took turns driving the truck, which was the highlight for most of them.


We had such a fun time and I am so glad I went so I could experience her first field trip with her!

O.K. I'm so considering moving!! You won't be sad you missed out on the parenting class at Chandler, its about 10-20mins of relevant info and 2 hours of crap, well maybe 1 1/2 of crap and 1/2 of sheer boredom.
