In the past I have always gone on Andrew's class field trips to the Zoo, the Dairy Farm, and a museum. So I was excited to go with Hunter on his very first field trip with his preschool class. His teacher Kristi is a friend of mine and he is the only boy in his small class of 3. So today for his field trip we went to the movies to see Monster's vs Aliens. It was a cute movie and the kids seemed to really like it and had fun.
On the car ride home we had the following conversation:
Mommy: Hunter did you have fun?
Mommy: Why not?
Hunter: Because a field trip means you go to a field and see animals, all we did was go to the movies!
Now in his defense he had gone with me to Andrew's field trip to the Zoo and the Dairy Farm so I can understand why he thought he was going to see some animals and was disappointed when he didn't. Needless to say that's how Hunter is he gets an idea in his head and next thing you know we are confused to why he is so upset, but he always comes around after we have figured it out and can explain it to him, like today after I explained what a field trip really is he decided he did have fun after all.
I really enjoy being able to be with my kids for their class trips I hope it makes a good memory for them as well as for me.
