J's Field Trip to the Library

J's 1st grade class went on a walking field trip to our new city library on Friday. It was a mile each way, at least. The kids did a small scavenger hunt-type activity to get them more familiar to where things are in the new library. Then, they sat under a big, fake tree (it looks really cool!) and one of the librarians read a few stories. J checked out a couple of books, and he was excited about that. We sat outside to eat our lunches. It was a beautiful day! Then, we had to walk all the way back to school. Many of the kids lost steam, but managed fine. It was fun to go ... and the best part, for me, was when we were almost back to the school and J turned to me and said, "Thanks, Mom, for coming on my field trip!" I'm so glad I was able to come. Thanks to my good friend, Raimi, for watching T for me.

Any time! I am glad you could go! J's comment makes those days/times with our kids so worth it! It is what they will remember.

I love the idea of a walking field trip. Those kids are good walkers! How fun.

Vince went to Dad's & Donuts last Friday and Daniel just hugged him. It's hard for V to get off for things during the day and so I was planning on going instead. I really think these are the memories that will last into their adulthood.
