field trip day!

remember when you were like 5 and you couldn't sleep at night because the next day you were going to get to go somewhere really really cool like the zoo or a pumpkin patch or something?? well, this last week, my 5 year olds lived the dream....FIELD TRIP DAY! that's right, this last week, we took the kindergartners (yes, all 260 of them) to the Discovery Gateway in Salt Lake City for a field trip. the morning monsters got to go on Wednesday and the afternoon monsters got to go on Thursday. let's just say the whole experience wiped me out so much that i'm just barely feeling rested enough to write about it. keeping up with 25 maniacs each day is a beast! if anyone is bored at any point of their life, please, go hang out with a 5 year old for 5 minutes...they know how to kick it...hard. i think they had an absolute blast.
this is only half of the kids waiting patiently (well, let's be honest...they're never really patient, especially on field trip day) for the day to begin. there are TONS of kindergartners in our school!

on day 1, M came and hung out for the day. he actually fell asleep in the car waiting for me at the end of the day! hecka cute. anyway, at the Discovery Gateway, they have this awesome Sesame Street Bodies exhibit going on; everything is all decked out in Sesame Street stuff. it's actually really, really cool...even for us oldies.
our favorite part of the bodies exhibit was the digestion station. we love potty humor in our little Chapman family.
a little glimpse into what the Chapmans deem "hilarious:" a POO machine! serious, you push the red button and WABAM...poo comes sliding down the plastic tube. it's actually really gross.
all in all, the field trip was a huge success! i'm just glad i don't have to worry about another one till next year...

That field trip sounds soo fun! I was the exact same way, I looked forward to them sooo much! I bet you are a great teacher.

so cute! Looks like a lot of fun- and patience on your part. AND- I saw the pics on brooke's blog, Marce they are beautiful!! I don't know what you're talking about having problem finding clothes... you look amazing! Where did you find those clothes, especially those jeans? Tiff hates shopping for clothes and can't find anything (she's a cute little shorty like you and everything just drowns her legs) Any suggestions?

I probably would have paid good money to see someone trying to keep those kids under control! You are probably the coolest teacher ever!!
