Chaperone

I was so lucky to have a friend watch the little girls, so I could go with some fun 2nd graders to Mt. Vernon. Our family has a season pass and this was my 5th time in 7 months, so I felt a little excited to take the kids.

They all traveled on these really great busses with t.v.'s and bathrooms



I was in charge of 4 kids including Annie Kate and I had mapped out how we would spend our only two hours on the large 5 farm plantation. As soon as we got in I was on a mission with the kids to do as much as possible. I took lots of photos of them, got in the mansion, saw the horse stables, played feather games, watched the virtual movie where it snows in the theater, went through the education center and made it in the nick of time to the gift shop so they could spend their money.

Annie Kate and I had so much fun together. Great day

Cute picture of you and AK. I love that you were able to go with her and give a tour to other 2nd graders. So much fun.

You are such a fun mom! I am sure AK loved having you there with her. I remember the field trips my mom was able to go on with me. Priceless!

Her face in that last picture says it all! SO fun- I loved it when my mom was able to come on the field trips with us.

It's so great that you could go do this with/for Annie Kate, and how fortunate that your friend could watch the other girls for you. Things like this are such great opportunities for both you as the mom and Annie Kate as the lucky daughter.

What a fantastic field trip, and how fun to have some one on one time with Annie Kate!

Carmen got AK's post card today, and I gave her a crash course about D.C. on your blog. Both my little girls have asked if they'll ever get to meet their post card pals.
