Is it already the next-to-the-last Tuesday of May? I really need to learn the art of not blinking, because with each blink, time passes by way too fast. This is also the second-to-the-last Tuesday of Princess Nagger’s school year – today she has the exciting field trip to… wait for it… the local township office.
I know, you’re quite jealous, aren’t you?
While other classes have been busing off to points of interest like the zoo or Hershey Park, Princess Nagger’s class gets the exciting ‘walking field trip’ where they’ll be walking – a couple of miles in the rain – to the local township office.
I see hues of green lighting up all over with your envy.
At least last month they got to go to the actual capital of the state – Harrisburg – so there was that. It’s sort of like going to the zoo, right? I had planned on sending my point-and-shoot camera with her so she could take pictures, she was all over that with the following conversation:
Me: “You can take pictures, and I’ll make a blog post about it, how does that sound?”
PN: “You mean you’d blog about my field trip?”
Me: “Sure, why not?”
PN: “How about this – I’ll take pictures and I’ll write the blog post for you.”
Me: “Sure, I could live with that – you could be my guest blog poster.”
PN: “You mean I can do all the typing and everything? On your laptop?”
Me: “I don’t see why not, it’s less work for me.”
PN: “I can’t wait to use your laptop, maybe you could do all the editing after I do all the typing.”
Me: “Works for me.”
Needless to say, I forgot to dig out my old camera to send with her, so she didn’t take pictures. But I’ll still have to conjure up something for her to guest post about – seems like she’s looking forward to getting the chance to use my laptop for whatever reason. No worries, it won’t be about today’s field trip to the local township office. Unless you need help getting to sleep, then I’m all over it.
Spring Fever is rampant – or would that be considered Summer Fever since it’s all about school coming to an end next week? This is an unusual year in that they’re actually finishing on the last day of May instead of several days into June because we didn’t get snow this year to warrant Snow Days. Of course Princess Nagger was bummed during the winter there were no Snow Days, but I’m pretty sure she’s stoked she doesn’t have to keep going to school once the calendar turns the page to June.
What happened to a school year starting the Tuesday after Labor Day and being done in time for Memorial Day? Now they start the third week of June and get out the end of May or beginning of June. No actual 3 months of summer I was used to when I was a kid. It must be because of all the ‘inservice’ days scattered throughout the year. I’m betting the poor teachers need a break, hence the ‘inservice’ days.
My awesome bloggy friend Jan posted this on my Facebook wall last week to share with Princess Nagger:
She loved it, as did I. Now Princess Nagger wants to build her own Stonehenge in the backyard to launch her giant Angry Birds at it. If she does, I’ll be sure to capture it on video for your amusement. Thanks for the inspiration, Jan!
