One down, one to go

7 May

It’s field trip season — today the West Central 2nd graders headed off to the Army National Guard, then lunch at Sertoma Park followed by a visit to the Butterfly House and Outdoor Campus.  In spite of the cold gray weather, I think most of the kids had a great time.  This was my second visit to the Army National Guard — and I highly recommend it as far as field trips go….we (and yes I mean me too) got to ride in a mobile rocket launcher, the kids got to try dessert or crackers from an MRE (meal ready to eat), see an M-16 (they didn’t get to touch) and then play in an inflatable bouncy house — One of the cutest/memorable things the guard member demonstrated was how heavy the pack they carried was — how’d they do that???  by putting a second grade girl in the pack and carrying her around for a bit.

We are so lucky to have such fine people making sure we are safe and free.  🙂
