At our elementary school, the fifth graders go to Sky Ranch for two nights in the fall. It is a science "field trip," and they leave on a Wednesday and return on Friday before school is out. I remember when it seemed like forever before my kids would be old enough for this trip, but lo and behold, this is Clare's year!
I attended with Clare as a chaperone, and we had a great time. We got to zip line!
Here is Clare with one of her best friends. It was a really pretty place, and we had great weather for most of our stay. It rained on the last day, which meant we didn't get to horseback ride. That was a bummer, but what can you do?
This was our cabin of girls. It was a good group, and thankfully, they were all pretty worn out each night!
After the learning sessions, there was time for fun. Clare enjoyed this "jumping pillow!"
I wasn't really sure what to expect when I signed up to go on this trip. I was pleasantly surprised at the trip. I enjoyed the time with Clare, and it was fun to get out of town.
It'll be Jane and Sydney's turn before I know it!
