Field Trip

Ten Squares, 2006, Oil on Panel, 24x36

No real post today. Within two days after I left a comment on Steve's blog that I avoid going on my kid's field trips "like the plague", my son came to me and asked if I would come along on a field trip with his favorite class, Language Arts. I tried to say no but he got me with the puppy dog eyes and since I am usually more of an embarrassment to him these days, I figured I better take advantage of these requests while I still get them.

So I am off to spend the morning at a cemetery (they are studying local history) with a gaggle of sixth graders.

When my daughters were that age I dreaded going on some of the field trips. Once we got there it was actually fun. Hope you enjoy yourself. BTW, nice painting.

I enjoy the actual field trips. It's the ride on the school bus I can usually live without.

We were headed to Fundy(hopewell rocks)I'm kinda disapointed :)

Yikes, this is my idea of hell, that and kid's birthday parties. But you are smart to take advantage of him wanting you around while he still does.

Take a camera.

Thanks everyone, for commiserating:-)

Meno, I meant to take the camera but forgot.
