I worked Mon through Thurs this week, but was happy to be off on Friday to chaperone Mitchell's field trip to New Salem! New Salem was where Abe Lincoln lived for about 7 years before he was President. It was interesting to hear how he lived and what he did before he decided to go into government. I remember New Salem from my 7th grade field trip. It was interesting to compare my memories and can't believe I'm old enough to chaperone my kid there now! I started my day off with dropping off the boys at school (they were able to sleep in until 6:45). The girls and I then headed to Molly's speech. I sat with Maya and played while Molly was in speech until nearly 9. I then dropped the girls at day care and headed to New Salem. I made it there by 9:45, just in time for the multiple busses of third graders. I was so lucky and had only three boys in my group. They had a great time!
