May 6, 2010

Today I'm just thankful.  Thankful that I made it through the day with a bunch of 1st graders, after less than 4 hours of sleep.  I woke up at 4:30 a.m. so I could finish my layout for the day, and get everything ready for the field trip.

On the way down we passed the Shrine Mosque, which I think is just a neat piece of architecture.  So I shot a picture out the window of the Jeep.

Then we met up with the bus load of kids . . .

Dave kept track of Eli,

while I kept the kids that were assigned to me in line.  Here is Bayleigh with one of her friends, pretending to be newscasters.  They were pretty hilarious.

There was a ton to do at the Discovery Center and I even found an instrument starting with an "R" here.  (If you'd like to see my "Music in May" project, just click on over to my other blog.)  This particular instrument was called a Riophone. 

The girls raced cars . . .

spun in circles until they couldn't walk (and yes! Both of them were on there.) . . .

and entertained us with silly faces.

It was a neat place and we'll have to go back again sometime (minus the other 60 or so kids in her class).  lol

After we finished up there, we all went to a local park and ate lunch.

All Eli cared about was the slides.  He had little girls hanging all over him wanting him to play with them, but he was busy doing his own thing.  It was rather funny.  In a few years, I'm sure the tables will be turned on him. 

It was a crazy busy day and I'm planning on going to bed before 10:00 p.m.  I'm cutting it close but I do believe it can be done!


  1. One of the best shot's you've taken so far must be that of the Shrine Mosque. Everything about it is amazing and the composition is perfect..

    Thanks to the girls on the spinner, I'm now feeling dizzy.

  2. Thanks M.! I was having an "off" day, but I'm glad a squeezed at least one decent shot in. lol It's entertaining watching the kids having so much fun.
