So two weeks ago we attempted to go to our first home school field trip. I took all the kids and went to the Fire Station. So there was a bit of milling around till the inspector led us on our tour, to be honest, he did a great job. He was engaging and explained some safety rules before we got started. Told some interesting factoids, about the trucks and the whole Fire Dept.
About five minutes in to the tour Ephraim was done, shortly followed by Joshua, then Sarah quit, because the boys sitting against the wall waiting seemed to be more exciting then standing near the truck. Robby followed along and seemed to enjoy the whole thing. 30 minutes into our trip Talitha was done, her feet were killing her! lol
Okay so I had to leave before the Q&A was over, Robby was a trooper about that, the rest of the kids wanted to know if we were getting McDonald’s completely oblivious. I returned home extremely disheartened and removed myself from the FaceBook home school group. It wasn’t their fault, but I didn’t need to see post after post of really cool outings, that we couldn’t go to. I really don’t know what I was thinking to try a field trip, the only trips I have ever gone one that have worked for us was a outings with Jenn and the girls, and with Big Mama and Daddy. I need more adults per children in the ratio for the recipe to work. Lesson learned.
