We are wrapping up the school year right about now. We’ll probably continue with a little work each day until the end of May, but I’m making room in the schedule for more and more fun. Days in the sun (I need it, you saw my arm!) and field trips are taking priority over written work. In first grade, that’s the way it should be this time of year.
Yesterday we went on a field trip to the California Pizza Kitchen. I was super impressed – they gave us a tour of the restaurant and free make-your-own pizzas, too. The managers were great with kids. The manager pictured here was funny, and gave facts and numbers that would boggle your mind if you weren’t in the restaurant biz, and simply knew how to lead a large group of shy kids.
And one or two not-so-shy ones.
That’s Max in the brown striped hoodie…saluting the managers.
Yeah, his friends are used to his ways. The things he does are just “Max” things, quirks if you will. He stands out from the crowd and does his own thing and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Hey kids, show us your hands that you just washed.
Hey Max, show us your clean hands
Okay, you see what I mean. We love this about Max.
For more pictures and his “assignment” following the field trip, check out Max’s blog.
(sorry for the abrupt endings the last few posts…we’re in the middle of watching The Unit and Lost. And Mike is calling me so gotta go.)
