Tomorrow morning at 5:00 a.m. we will be boarding a whole fleet of school buses for the end-of-the-year field trip. We are going to the Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village for the day and will not return until 9:00 p.m. tomorrow night. Long day. But fun, with 400 8th graders and all of their energy, enthusiasm, and goofiness. The kids are so excited, especially our Annie Bug. We’ve been discussing this trip since the school year started, and it is finally here.
Because I will be away from my computer for a whole day (!) there are several projects and deadlines that I have to address today, so not much time to stop between tasks. Gotta keep moving, and this evening we will be making sure we have everything ready to walk out the door, hopefully, by 5:00 a.m. It is amazing how many preparations mom has to make just to go on a one-day field trip – plan the food, make arrangements for the other kid to get to school and come home from school, make sure everyone has EVERYTHING they might need for one whole day, finish the laundry so everyone has clean clothes, pack the tote bags for the day, and figure out how to pick up the truck that is in the repair shop, AND pay the bills before I can go.
By the time I get on one of those buses tomorrow morning, I’m going to need a nap. Fortunately it is a three hour trip so if the kids keep themselves occupied for a bit, I’ll be able to check out at least for a little while before we get to our destination. I’ll post pictures next week of our trip. In the meantime, I hope you will join us for the Favorite Things Blog Hop. I will do my best to pop around to visit some of you next week, after I recover from my field trip adventure with this group of loud, messy, amazing, beautiful 8th graders. Wish me luck!
