5th Grade Field Trip
These have been an incredibly busy few days. Friday is my day off. It is usually filled with laundry and checkbooks, but not this week. L's class had a field trip to Fort Gaines on Dauphin Island. We drove down behind the school bus. The fort is really neat, lots to see. The blacksmith was there that day. We saw the sign announcing his presence on the way down. L wondered if he would look like Will Turner from "Pirates of the Caribbean." Actually he looked more like Norm Abram from "New Yankee Workshop."
After the trip, we stopped at a roadside picnic area for lunch. There were some really great trees there. The kids took full advantage of the opportunity to climb. It was amazing to see forty kids all in one tree!
