Chatterbugs November 2015 Blog Hop
This past Friday I had the pleasure of being a chaperon for Shawn’s 1st field trip of the school year. Since I obviously work full time outside the home, I don’t have a lot of chances to volunteer for many school functions, and therefor I am always thankful for when I am able to do so. The entire 1st grade went on a “walking field trip” to a local nursing home to sing Halloween songs, wear their costumes, and have a yummy treat too. I took a 1/2 day from work, and even got to dress up for Halloween too!
It was really wonderful to see all the kids in their costumes, and there really was a wide variety too. I know a few of the kids from either Pre-K or Kindergarten, and also the morning drop-off so they had to come show me their costumes too. Everyone was so well behaved and I know the residents there were happy to see all of their smiling faces.
As much as I am thankful that my boss let me take some time off to attend the field trip, I am really thankful for the time in their classroom. This is where I got to really interact with the kids. I am not sure if I have ever mentioned this but if I wasn’t a designer, I would have been a teacher (I almost went for Art Education for my Master’s Degree but decided not to because of the cost.). I just feel at home with the kids and I really wish that I would have got my Masters in education.
The kids were just too cute and we played guessing games, danced around, and they showed me stuff in their room. I only got to spend about 40 minutes total with them and I didn’t want to leave. There were 2 other helpers and I don’t know when they left because I was so busy playing with the kids. I could have stayed there with them all day! It was really wonderful to see Shawn interacting with his friends (and wasn’t glued to my side the entire time. In fact he was barely near me the entire time!)
