I have survived..

Beautiful day, lovely zoo, crabby teacher and lots of kids. I have managed to survive our first field trip. Luckily I got only a 3 kids, but we ended up with 2 other Mom's and we wrangled the boys as a group effort.



There were upsets, like who got to hold the map and minor break downs of not wanting to go where the rest of the group was going. The one animal they ALL agreed on were the polar bears? Not the slimy snakes or the ferocious lions,but the cute polars. After we finally got all the boys going in the same direction and walking, we made it there and it lasted a whole minute. Just long enough to get a picture.... Yup, see it and move on.

Take note...maps, these little men fought over the maps! One who isn't in the picture didn't even look up when walking, he studied that map, he was our fearless leader of the pack....

After the 123,174 time of mom's telling the boys to walk, not run, we gave up. The only way to get them to sit still....feed them ice cream...yup, we bought them goodies...
Spiderman seemed to be the favorite...then off to the bus it was. Long day. JC is actually asleep on the floor now. Mom is next.
