Carmel/Monterey Field Trip

With my school day, it is really hard to take days off and prepare sub plans, so whenever it comes to field trips and Grace's school events, Jason's the one that usually goes (it's much easier for him, and he has more sub days than me).  Well, this year, I was able to chaperone for Grace's field trip to Carmel/Monterey.  Our friend, Marcy, also volunteered to chaperone, so we got to spend the day together.  It was great to be able to chat the whole way there and back.  CJ and Grace have been in the same class two years in a row and it has been awesome.  They are great friends- we are grateful for the Bergens!  
The day started off really early in the morning at 6:00 am as we met at school to board the charter bus.  We arrived at the beautiful Carmel Mission and went on a guided tour.  From there, we took the charter bus to Monterey and had lunch by the pier.  We took a walking tour to Colton Hall and got to tour the hall before walking back to the charter bus in the wharf area. We got back to Fresno at about 6:30pm. It was a very fun day (worth the hours of lesson planning I had to leave for my sub, lol)!
