I've Been Chosen

I've been chosen to go on a field trip!  Evidently they have more parents volunteer than they can use because when you sign the permission slips there is a place where you can check if you "want to be considered as a chaperone".  I have checked it before, but never made the cut.  This time however, Audra's teacher decided that instead of drawing a name out of a hat, she was going to choose me because we are new to the school.  She instructed the class, "Now, be sure to tell your parents why I chose Audra's mom."   So later this month I get to visit St. John's Church where Patrick Henry gave his famous "Give me liberty or give me death" speech.  (You can't do that in Oklahoma.)  I'm still hoping to join Will's class when they visit Monticello in April.   I won't be as new then... but at least I can be considered!

That is so interesting to me about the chaperone lottery. The only time we limit parents for our field trips is if we are going somewhere that has tickets and we are limited to seats (like a recent play). Otherwise, we take anyone who comes. I am glad you get to go!
