nothing better

There's almost nothing better than field trip day. Caitlin makes seven years of kindergarteners. I sat on the school bus wedged between six year olds, swarmed by flying elbows and the buzz of excited voices. I was thinking grateful thoughts about flashbacks, and the many years of field trips to various museums, apple orchards, factories, monuments, water parks. I'm not sure if there is a bigger honor than a spot for me on the bus bound for field trip day.

Wednesday Caitlin and I and the kindergartners were off to the BYU Museum of Paleontology.

The kids enjoyed their very animated tour guide.
Next we visited the Monte L. Bean Life Science Museum, where we watched a demonstration on reptiles.
And had the opportunity to get acquainted.  Then we made a scavenger hunt out of the exhibits.
And we finished off with a walk over to the BYU creamery.
