School’s out for summer…

Well, I made it….all the way to the end of the year! Woo-hoo, it doesn’t quite feel like summer yet but hopefully it will soon.  We had a great field day the last day with relays, inflatables (even I got to go down), tug o’ war, and TONS of other fun activities not to mention the awards ceremony, ice cream, and birthday cupcakes – the day flew by!

I’m excited for summer but since I don’t have the same position as last summer, it will be a big change but I’m excited nonetheless.  I’ll leave you with some field trip photos.  We went to a farm and did a corn maze, saw lots of animals, went on a hayride, face painting, snow cones…the whole she-bang!

These were from a little while ago but still cool!

How did I miss the memo that tadpoles were small?! They are certainly NOT!

Nice Walking Stick

Hissing Cockroaches….EWWW!
One of my other teamies told me for my first school field trip the ultimate goal is to “get them all there and get them all back.”  I certainly did that but, whew, did it wear me out.  Keeping track of everyone no matter how hard you try is a daunting task even with chaperones.  
Got any great field trip tips for next time?

    Omg! I thought they were smaller too! I don't think I could handle all those bugs! Ew!
