Day 97 - Field Trips

I chaperoned a field trip today for my son's class. A play. At a local university. It was entertaining. A little boring in parts. But I was so amazed at the patience and politeness of his classmates. At points where it was obviously a little slow, a little boring for the age they were all so still and so quiet. And then we all ate lunch, outside on the college campus. And many students walking past noticed us (how could you not?) and there were smiles. Some even stopped to talk to the children. One even commented on how well behaved they all were. I love my son's school. I loved being on the field trip to witness their behavior as a group. This field trip brought me joy.
