My new perspective on field trips.

Yesterday was a really long day, and I have some serious sore muscles to prove it. (Thank you, large cooler, for destroying my shoulders.) But the paperwork and the stress and the frantic organizing of who would be on stage and the panic of not knowing what to do about the bus driver . . . it was all worth it to see them twirling in the spring air and enjoying the sunshine on our afternoon break. Even the sweltering, unairconditioned room was worth it, because of the smiles on their faces at the end of the day. And because of one very serious 6th grader who said, in the most excited voice imaginable, “You made cookies! You make really good cookies.”
