Kindergarten Field Trip.




To the Polk County Landfill. A.K.A. 'The Dump'. She was thrilled to ride the bus, help me with Lill and generally just open her mouth, stick her teeth out, and smile! I am so glad I trashed my excuses and went with her.

At one point we looked over at Nicholas (her boyfriend earlier this year) and he was pouting in his seat. She begged me to let her go sit by him, see what was the matter. I flat out refused. Sorry but the last thing on this earth I need is for my little girl to go help the sulking six-year-old boy that just wants girl attention. Uh UHH. Go call the whine patrol.

I LOVE that you refused. I want to be just like you when my girls grow up:)

Field trips when my mom came along were the very best! And you're such a good mom to teach her not to give in to the male neediness. I loved this post.

One thing I hope never fades as Taylor gets older is her sincere desire to have me along when she goes on those field trips. It really boosts my spirits. Glad you had fun!

Man I love these field-trip pictures. And their just field-trip pictures. Sometimes I'm not sure how you make little things look so cool with your camera. THe fact that her little face is the only to jump out of all those kids..
