This is from yesterday's 5th grade field trip to the California Academy of Science. For some reason, I volunteered to chaperon with over 100 loud and hyper 10 year olds. It was an interesting place, but I could hardly enjoy it. Every other minute I was searching my surroundings and counting 1-2-3-4-5. Counting the 5 kids I was in charge of keeping safe. In a large, child filled, often dark museum, that's not such an easy task.
Here's a pic of when I could let them get away from me. They all traveled down the 3 foot tall tunnel to a special spot where apparently no parents are allowed.
