Haiku Friday





Field Trip today
about 100 4th graders
trip is 12 hours long.

What was I thinking
when I volunteered for this?
am I that insane?

Be at school at 6
herd sleepy kids on the bus
for a three hour drive.

A three hour drive?
Yup - destination that far
Williamsburg, VA

Jamestown and Yorktown
two important sites of our
American past.

Three hour drive home
back to school by 6pm
boy I sure to hope
/
Everyones parents
pick up their children on time
because I'm going

To a girls night out
Mommy Needs A Glass of Wine
and wow, I'll need one!!

Oh boy. That sounds... um... challenging. Good luck with that!
You will certainly deserve some wine after that! :)

you are a braver woman than i am.

of course, my daughter no longer wants me to come on her school field trips. that was a sad moment indeed.

Whoa. That's a tough assignment. I say that as a former teacher. Volunteering to do it is brave.

I remember field
trips like this and parents who
went along like you!

I do hope that your
evening out was everything
you hoped it would be ;--)

Hugs and blessings,

You survived! Hurrah! It was so great to see you out on Friday! Talking with you is like talking with an old friend. . . . I don't know why, exactly, but there it is. :-)
