In the Field

 Since the start of the new school year, our lives have been busy.
Full of fun field trips and lots of learning and play.

Making memories is what I live for as a mom.
I want my kids to have every possible memory of childhood to be purely awesome.
I want my kids to say, "We enjoyed our childhood. It was good!".

I recently sat down with a busy business woman, who told me the story of her grandson who was in a public school which had recently cut their field trips back to only two per year.
This grandmother recalled the time when she was a child.
She reminisced of all the outings she and her classmates took throughout her years of education.

 I went to a public school all of my years of education.
Of all the memories I have of school, I remember our field trips most. 

Every year we would go to watch the "The Nutcracker". 
The theater was fascinating to me and I will always be grateful
 to have been able to see those showings as a child.

We also had something that was called "field day", in which,
we, the children, were given the freedom to play, romp, and roll around outside.
 Those were the good 'ole days.
I wonder why they came around only once a year.

At Davis Academy, we have a lot of field trips.
Below are some photos of our field trips since the start of our school year 2011-2012.
I hope my children will remember these good times for many years to come!
