It doesn’t get any better than elementary school field trips. A day off school. Wearing the class t-shirt. Riding the bus.
It really doesn’t matter if you’ve been there a thousand times. (And we have. The Austin Science and Nature Center is a family favorite.) It’s a school day. You’re wearing lime green. And instead of sitting at a desk, you’re digging for dinosaur bones. Or eating sand.
It’s good for moms to take a field trip as well. To take a break from cleaning the kitchen floor, scaling the laundry pile, buying bananas, and visiting the doctor for more baby ear infections.
Field trips are a break from the norm. I love being along for the ride.
