First Field Trip



You guys remember my Hawaii posts, right? Well, for those that don’t. I wrote like 8 separate posts for three weeks of my sister and her boyfriend’s trip to Hawaii back in July. I love writing posts about the things that my sister does. It’s actually really fun for me! Today, I have something a little different for you. My neighbor/bestie Sammy has a three year old daughter named Chevy. She is in preschool now and she got to go on her very first field trip a couple of weeks ago. A few days before, Sammy kind of mentioned as they were leaving my room that maybe I can write about it on my blog! I was thrilled because I have mentioned them before and it would give me something to look forward to write about on my blog since they all read it anyways!

I knew that I was allowed to write about it for two weeks and I was reeling with excitement! I didn’t want to tell everybody just in case plans fizzled you know? Everybody in our families knew that I was going to do this, so the week before my dad had gotten confused of what day they were leaving, so I had to text her to make sure that I hadn’t heard differently. I was right of course! They went to the pumpkin patch. Which to me is a quintessential preschool/kindergarten type of field trip! Chevy was so excited to go on the bus with her classmates! While all of the parents were driving behind the bus, the driver made the wrong turn and had to do a U-y in a grovel road along with the other ten cars! Sammy said that the place has been there for 70 years! Sammy’s mom went with them and remembered taking Sammy there when she was in school. I remember going to a pumpkin patch, whether or it was the same one is still unknown. I had to rolled around in a wagon the whole time. I only say that because we have proof of it! They were only there for about three hours, for all that they did it didn’t seem that short of a trip!

It’s now fall here where we live and so the weather is usually breezy/sunny or cold/wet. It had been rainy off and on the whole day I know because I heard it outside my windows. The kids were dressed up in their jackets, hoods on to cover up their little ears, and had their sneakers or rain boots on! Chevy’s very much like her mom. She likes to roam outside in her bare feet and loves mud! This was right up her alley except for the colder temperatures! They got to run around and each bring home a pumpkin. At first Chevy grabbed one for herself but liked the one her momma picked up instead! I could imagine seeing these little kids trying to pick up a big pumpkin like the size of their heads! You gotta feel bad for the parents when they do that, because you know they’re the ones going for the small/medium size ones! They got to go through a corn maze. I always loved corn mazes! Sammy said once Chevy got towards the end of it she just decided “screw this” and jumped over the hay stack instead!!

They got to play this ducky thing. It’s like a slide with water. You have the rubber ducky at the top of the slope and the more water you release through at the top, it slides the duck to the other side. Sammy got a cute video of Chevy doing the lever like a champ!! They also had this “dome” as what Sammy described it as, the way I figured it might be is those things when people go down and a steep slide and the person that went before is sitting or standing on the opposite side of it and when that other person falls down that first guy goes flying through the air because of the pressure of the new person landing on it. Has anybody seen those videos before? Anyways, Chevy and her classmates went bouncing on that. They also did rat races. When I saw the picture at first I didn’t know what the hell they were doing but now it makes sense! I was just surprised Sammy didn’t just go on her hands and knees like Chevy because if you go too fast in those things the speed alone will make you go down anyways! And lastly Sammy and Chevy got to get their picture taken when they placed their faces through the windows of the school bus. So sweet!

Now that I’m thinking about that is a lot on the parents, teachers, and kids for three hours. Sammy said that when it was time to leave, the three of them went home together but first they went to Dairy Queen (lucky!) for lunch. I think this was probably the cutest thing I’ve written about for a while. Wait until Halloween, if Sammy dresses up Chevy and her sister Chey, you know what’ll be on here!
