Tomorrow we are taking our 7th grade students on the first field trip of the year. Most of the naughty ones blew it already so we don't have to worry about them. But seriously, I am nervous as hell!
First of all, we are going to be going through a corn maze. I HATE inclosed spaces & got lost in a corn field when I was around 12. I got some prior knowledge that will probably be screwing with my brain tonight! I have to be brave in front of my group of 12 and suck up my fear and deal with it.
After the maze we get to go to the 'corn cannons' where kids get to shoot corn cobs and see whose go the farthest. I am so going to dominate them on that one..... if they let me play along.....
Then it is off for a hayrack ride. I always love those. I plan on taking my camera and getting some good photos of the kids for the yearbook.
Here's where the nervousness comes in. I am taking a half day (planned way in advance before the trip was scheduled) and I have to leave around lunch. (Where am I going you ask? The Lady Doctor. Go me!) I have to drive seperately, leave my group unattended on the bus both to and from the farm & leave before they get lunch. I feel so bad, but I couldn't change the appt.
So, here is my schedule for tomorrow:
7:00 -Drive to work in Davenport ~18 miles
9:15 - Drive to Alpha ~40 miles
12:00 - Drive to doctor in Davenport ~ 40 miles
2:30 - Drive home to Coal Valley ~18 miles
3:40 - Drive to Silvis (another dr. appt.) ~ 15 miles
4:45- Drive to parents' house ~ 3 miles
6:20 - Drive to Davenport for daddy/daughter date night ~ 20 miles
9:00- Drive to parents' house ~ 20 miles
9:20 - Drive home to Coal Valley ~ 15 miles
Yes, you did read daddy/daughter date night correctly. We are going to the B Horror movie double feature at Cinema 53. On tomorrow nights play bill: The warewolf in the girls dormatory and The Bat. We may not make it through both, but we will give it a shot. I owe my dad for my love of terrible horror movies. Thank you dad! Oh, yeah you too Eric. Nobody can get their kid sister to vomit like my big bro. I still can't eat tomatos and watch Reanimator..... Another story for another time.
Don't forget to check back to see our door decoration contest entry at school. There may be a few field trip fotos too. One of me freaking out in the corn maze perchance?
