We’re going on a field trip to Lansing this week and I have worked very hard to prepare everything…
First aide bags for all the chaperones
Brain Bogglers and song sheets for the bus ride
Name tags for all
Scavenger hunt for the museum
etc. etc. etc.
And finally, when I get all things in order…the what ifs start infiltrating my calm…
What if the bus driver gets lost?
What if one of my students has an allergic reaction?
What if a student breaks his or her leg?
What if we don’t get back in time for the buses?
What if the parent chaperones who drive separately aren’t waiting for us when we get there?
What if a student gets lost?
What if there isn’t a male chaperone to supervise the boys in the bathroom in the capitol building? And worse…what if…?
Even though we always have a great time on this field trip…I am so grateful to return the kids safely to their parents at the end of the day 🙂
