Little Kid vs. Big Kid Field Trip

Here is a side-by-side comparison of two recent field trips that I've chaperoned. 

20 minute bus ride to a farm                      2 hour bus ride to Richmond

Impromptu dancing with friends                           "Give me liberty or give me death" reenactment

Time to run around and explore freely   4 stops around town and every minute is structured

Hanging out with big sister                           Hanging out with Thomas Jefferson

Pleasant company                                            Perhaps George's wig is a bit too tight?!

Being silly with friends                                        Being silly with friends

Laughing and giggling                                     Giggling and laughing

A couple of thoughts: 
I know I say it all the time, but I LOVE living where my kids see places in real life that I only read about in my history books. 

On another note, I can tell that someday I'm going to totally miss these days of having kids with wide eyes of wonder.

Both field trips look like fun in different ways.

You are such a wonderful Mom, always being so involved in all your kids activities. You really are so blessed to leave in D.C.

Thanks for sharing your adventures.
