Field Trip to the Zoo
Grace's last field trip in kindergarten was to visit the zoo this past Thursday. We actually have a zoo membership (a generous gift from my fifth graders last year), so the part Grace most anticipated was getting to ride the bus. How could that seem more exciting than a trip to the zoo?! I don't get it. We knew there wasn't going to be enough room for the chaperones on the bus, so Madison's mom, Heather, and I were going to carpool together. Before the trip though, Mrs. Sousa asked if we'd be willing to take Madison and Grace in our car with us, since there were more students than seats on the bus. After a lot of convincing, Madison and Grace rode to the zoo in "the little grey bus" (aka: Madison's family's minivan). To "ease the devastation" of not riding the bus," we let them have gum, chocolate banana bread, and brownies. "You guys are so lucky- none of those kids on the bus get to eat all of these cool treats!" The actual zoo visit was pretty quick because Grace's kindergarten class is only half day so we had to return to the school for dismissal. The highlight was simply being with friends! Hopefully, Madison and Grace will get to be together in the same class next year! I am bummed I didn't take more pictures!
