'Tis the Field Trip Season

With the spring, and with the end of school looming in the distance, at some point I think every elementary classroom will take a field trip.  Kinder, First, and Second usually stay in town and hit the zoo and city park.  Upper grades travel to places like Splash World or SeaWorld. (I envy 5th graders when they get to hit NASA and the Johnson Space Center in Houston.)

But sometimes we take a field trip in town during the fall to more "educational" places.  The nearby firehouse is very interesting, as also is a grocery store.  No, really.  Go in the back of a grocery store and see what goes one behind those double plastic swing doors.

Of course, the cheaper the "entry fee", the better the chance the trip will be approved.
