First off, I'd like to report I did survive Monday's field trip but barely. I swear, I want to be on whatever my son's teacher is on because she just skates through her day without a care in the world. And when I say without a care, thank God there were 7 parents keeping track of all the kids because she just assumed the kids were behind her at all times.
The Trekkie show was painful and I'm still not sure what lesson the kids were to get out of that. I cringed and had to slouch down in my seat when they approached my aisle for volunteers to board their space ship. No way was I getting on that stage and acting all Vulcan!
At the end of the day because it was a long day. 8:30 ~ 3:30 to be exact the teacher boarded the bus and turned to thank us before we walked off to our car. Hell yes we drove (another mother and I) No way were we going to travel on that crazy bus with 11 year old boys and girls and all that noise.
Anyway she said, "I think the day went very well and all the kids enjoyed themselves, did you?
I said to her, "Well, I can definitely say, this was an experience I will never forget, that's for sure!" My friend who was with me practically chocked on her spit!
As much as it pains me to do this again, I feel that for the safety of the children, and because I feel its important to know what the kids are being "taught", I will do it again! I'm thinking we parents need to be paid to go on these things or at least a free beer card after its over, lol!
OK, so here's where the tears start to flow in your coffee!
Have you ever just needed a good cry? Well let me tell you this is a doozy! I can barely see while I type this, my eyes are so swollen from all the tears I've shed!
This is so heartfelt and moving that there are no words, WOW!
Please turn off my music before watching!
To all the men and women in the military and there families, thank you for all you do!
