Linking up with Darci for Five on Friday!
I got back from NASA with a group of 50+ 8th graders and was asleep, in bed by 8. It was a super fun, but exhausting trip and I was EXCITED to see my bed :) This post is scattered, short and sweet due to that fact. hahaha
ONE - Fun Chaperones!
I love hanging out with kids on these school trips, but you end up spending most of your time with the other chaperones. We had a GREAT bunch of adults and I had a blast with them!
Wednesday night we got to listen to Colonel Bellue share his testimony. Colonel was the head meteorologist for NASA for 22 year and he retired and now teaches Physics at MCA. He's so much fun and kind of a celebrity at NASA. The kids think he's awesome!!!
Commander Boese teaches 8th Grade science and arranged the whole trip. So fun, so funny and definitely a "sky nerd" :)
TWO - Great Kids
We are BLESSED With a fantastic group of really great kids that we don't have to worry about TOO much :) They had so much fun and it's so fun to get to see them outside of school.
THREE - No One LEAVES!!!
The girls pulled the mattress off of the rollaway bed and put it on the floor in the bedroom of our suite so that all 5 of them could sleep together, so I pulled the bed frame in front of the door as a reminder that NO ONE LEAVES!!!!! hahaha :)
FOUR - Apparently, I am 14
It was proven over the two days that apparently, I am 14 :) I got in trouble with our program leader during "rocket building" for giggling with my girls and she threatened to switch my group. hahaha
FIVE - I hate leaving my kids!!!
I hate leaving them, but Dave does SUCH a fabulous job. He got everyone dressed, ready and out the door on both days, took care of laundry and even cleaned! AMAZING!!! I loved getting pics of the kids while I was gone, like this one (which was the best of 20) on Wednesday night...
... and this one on Thursday morning :)
I walked in the door after dinner on Thursday night and Griffin was nothing but snuggles all night. She would snuggle in, pull back and look at me and then snuggle some more. Love that mommy's girl! The boys were excited to see me, but were more excited about the balloon rockets I brought them :)
Such a fun trip, but I'm so glad to be home. Today I'm taking that same 8th grade group on a Community Outreach Day to Bed Start and then it's SPRING BREAK!!! WOO-HOO!!!
