Field Trip

This week we celebrated Catholic Schools week at school.  The week was filled with fun - dressing in lots of themes (Sports Day Monday, Color Day Tuesday, Wacky Wednesday, Spirit Wear Friday), and service - visiting a nearby assisted living residence where we sang songs and delivered Valentine's vases filled with tissue paper flowers.  We capped off the busy week with an all school mass, a quick game of Don't Throw Your Junk in My Backyard while waiting for the buses, and a field trip to Betty Brinn Children's Museum.  It made for one long day (especially because it did not involve naps), but it was so worth it!  Mom decided to brave the extra long school day along with us, and she joined us for all of the above.  Betty Brinn was the highlight of the day with Mom being in charge of Lily, myself, and three of our crazy friends.  Mom's only job was to not lose the five of us, which was no easy task in a huge museum with lots of rooms, thousands of things to do,and each of us wanting to go someplace different.  She somehow kept the crew together though, and we managed to have fun every step of the way.  Just to name a few of our favorite things...we loaded coal onto conveyor belts, flew a space ship, did a little grocery shopping, danced, put on a puppet show, piloted a submarine, climbed through someone's nose, made it through a maze, discovered carnival mirrors, and drove a bus.  After a fun filled week, and especially crazy day, it is a good thing we have Monday off to recover here in our world!
