Not only was there our school bus load of 3 kindergarten classes with 20 students in each, but there was at least another 5 busses full of kids. What was Fairytale Town thinking? Yeah, they are probably hurting for money, but come on! Couldn’t they split up the days? Then to make matters worse, they didn’t have enough staff on hand to collect the monies from all the different teachers. Shouldn’t this have been done beforehand? It was absolute chaos. At one point I honestly thought the kids were going to take over, they were trying to break down the iron fence!
I can say there was one (and only one) time on this field trip I did really enjoy, and that was lunch time. Those kids were so quite I think I may have heard a cricket or two. :)
So, what I learned on my first field trip experience is: Mason can ride the bus anytime he wants, there will be NO birthday parties in the castle at Fairytale Town nor will I (meaning Adam will have to go) be attending any birthday parties in the castle (cough cough), and always pack a flask to help keep me sane (teasing other parents with this flask will also be fun).
