Yesterday, despite warnings of heavy rainfalls throughout the day, I took the day off work to accompany Kenyan and Treyton on their class’ field trip to a farm. Because we had two kids enrolled, both of use were allowed to go. Six Pines Farm was our destination.
It was a wet and maybe not as comfortable as I would have liked but as long as the kids were having fun it was wrong for us parents to gripe. Although a few of us still complained about the cold and the rain. The boys had a great time petting and riding the animals. Well the horse.
This was a great opportunity for me to actually meet the parents of the kids I hear so much about. I see them when I pick up the boys from school but I always thought they were snobby and stuck up. With their lululemon wear, stylish shoes and hair all done up…Maybe I was the one that felt uncomfortable approaching them dressed in my steel-toed boots, jeans and sometimes cap. ( I pick up the boys on my lunch break from work). They probably thought that I was the snobby one, standing off to the side by myself. Well thanks to the informal setting of a field trip, we made nice in the presence of farm animals. Who would have thought these mommies were actually cool with a sense of humor?
Once back home, I was spent. Wet and cold, I wanted nothing but to sit and use the rainy evening wisely. Watch a movie with the boys.
