After hemming and hawing and hoping that the deadline passing would mean I didn’t have to make a decision, our oldest daughter’s teachers really asked (no doubt on her behalf) if she could go on a field trip to Washington DC. I was not thrilled with the idea. I knew I wouldn’t be able to be a chaperone, but I guess at some point we have to let them out of the nest a bit.
We made the deposits, did the fund raising, made all the payments and on Wednesday at 3:30am, they were off. Thankfully, Mr. Serious was up to the challenge of getting her there at that time and thought to grab a picture.
She was so busy and had the fullest of full schedules. I don’t think they skipped seeing anything while they were there. She did get a chance to borrow her chaperone’s phone and call us every day to fill us in. She also wanted to be filled in on our days. I assure you, they were pretty average, especially in comparison to what she was doing.
Thankfully, her chaperone also sent a picture that doesn’t show faces, so I can share it…you know for the old blog baby book!
We didn’t really do anything monumental this week. It was definitely weird without the oldest here. Before dinner, I asked for a hug one day (maybe missing her a bit) and before I knew it, it was a big hug. It makes my mom heart happy for sure.
But, I was pretty glad to pick her up Sunday morning and have her safely back in the nest. Let’s see how long she sleeps today!
