Nature Center with Second Graders

Have I ever mentioned that I'm not overly fond of field trips? Oh, yes, I believe I have. So where did I go today? I'm a sucker for these blue eyes.

Peek-a-boo on the bus!

Checking out the fauna with Rick as our guide. The kids got to dig for bugs. What second grader wouldn't like that?

But this was mama's favorite part. I never tire of Columbine or photographing flowers. I could have done this the whole day and not been bored!

So, all in all, not too bad, but boy am I exhausted tonight. It wasn't the actual trip that was tiring, it was the sheer noise of two classes of 8 year olds. I can handle my own 2...36 of them? I felt a little twitchy.

You're a braver woman than me. The thought of getting on a school bus full of elementary school kids sends me screaming the other direction whenever an invitation to go on a field trip arrives...
