This past week the two older boys and I took a trip down to San Diego with our co-op. The 75 of us boarded the Amtrak train around 8am Monday morning. The train ride itself was a highlight for the kids (for mom, too, I got to sit back, visit and read a good book while the kids enjoyed the excitement of their first train ride with their friends).
From the train station we walked to the USS Midway. Such a fun place to explore with the boys!
Part of our admission included the audio tour, Nathan took this part VERY seriously. The kids were given instructions to listen to every one that had a green color sign and fill in the answers on a pamphlet but Nathan listened to every single one, no matter the color :)
My star student soaking up every piece of information he could get! :)
SO much to explore!
Once they filled in their pamphlets with the information they learned they received a pin... a BIG hit with all the kids!
Beautiful sunset on our train ride home. Such a fun, albeit exhausting, day! Truly a field trip they won't soon forget :)
