When I woke up this morning, it was cold and rainy. Of course it was raining, we have an outdoor field trip today. Instead of thinking, “Oh, I don’t think I’m going to go today because I don’t want to get wet, walk through wet grass, and look like something that was dragged out of the sewer” I got dressed in my favorite water shoes, put my favorite purple shirt on and told myself I was going to embrace the day, whatever was thrown at me; no umbrella included. Loaded up the minivan and off to school we went- with big smiles on our faces:)
The kiddos were so ready for their field trip, but not before a couple of errands that needed to be completed for the teacher, which I was excited to help out.
Chelsea was star today which made it even more special. Each kid was given a piece of paper that had “Chelsea is_______” and the kids had to draw a picture and fill in the words. Some of these kids were pretty creative. Below are some of the examples they had written for her in her book. So sweet ❤
We arrived at the farm for our field trip and to our surprise, while other schools canceled, we were 1 of 3 classes that were there today and guess what-NO RAIN! How exciting! Life is so much better when you’re embracing and chasing it.
We had a great time swinging on the tire swings, riding in the cows that were pulled by a tractor, playing in corn, and riding on a hay ride! Kindergarten is so much fun! A farm is even better! I decided to take the bus to embrace the full scope of a field trip and it’s so much fun with the kiddos! Brings back a ton of memories.
These kiddos pressured me into going down the huge slide today and like an even bigger kid- I stepped up to the challenge and went down the slide, but not before taking this selfie with them 🙂
Another mama stepped up to the challenge and slide down the slide 🙂 This is our girl scout leader-she is wonderful 🙂 A great leader she is and fun!
Of course all good things must come to an end and after we got home, Chelsea and I were exhausted!!!
This is my happiness post. This picture was also taken back around Christmas time and we are ALWAYS excited about Christmas…just as right now..I’m super ecstatic to start my forever career as a Daycare director! It has been so nice with friends, family, and school employees congratulating me. I’m just as happy right now about my new position as I was at this moment when I took this picture- Oh, and that man standing with me- yeah, he was the one who told me to never give up and keep trying and one day you’ll get to where you want to be:)
Ok, that’s enough blogging for tonight.
