Field Trip

Yesterday, Wildman’s class joined the other 1st/2nd combined class and the other second grade classes at Cocoa Beach Jr/Sr High Auditorium for a 3D interactive show about making healthy eating choices.  I tagged along as a chaparone and got to experience Wildman’s first school bus ride with him.  It’s been his dream to ride a school bus and he totally thinks he is getting robbed by not having to ride one.  I’ve tried to explain to him that he’s extremely lucky to be able to live within walking and biking distance of his school.  He doesn’t believe me 🙂

The show was put on by Kid Power and was really quite entertaining.  It probably wasn’t as exciting as visiting Greenmeadows Farm like the other first graders got to do but it was still pretty darn cool and LOCAL.  Parts of the show were in 3D and parts of the show were in a one-man play format.  It was part musical, part movie, part science lesson and part interactive experience.  The kids loved shouting out their parts from the audience.  One of Wildman’s classmates was even called upon to dance on stage!

After the show we took a couple of pictures with the star then headed over to a local park for a picnic lunch.

Things got a little hairy when another group of three classes from a local school arrived and pretty much took over the park.  It was total chaos for a while.  Lots of kids were climbing trees which is a liability for the teachers.  When a couple of teachers asked the children to get down some moms got very snippy and were disrespectful to the teachers in front of their children.  Ugh!  We ended up packing up our things and leaving early.  It wasn’t worth the risk of someone getting injured falling from a tree or hurting themselves on a too-crowded playground structure.  Our kids didn’t mind leaving early.  They were looking forward to recess on their own playground back at school.

Cutie Pie’s field trip is this morning!  We’re pumpkin patch bound!  🙂
