8th grade trip to DC

Parting words over heard at 6 AM this morning as parents hugged an 8th grade daughter just before she boarded the buses for DC, “be good, no tattoos.”  The parents promised in response.

Talked briefly with a teacher, and learned just how many scheduling adjustments the school has to make to cover the classes for the 19 teachers who chaperone the trip.  Sounds like everyone has to stretch and cooperate to make it work.

    It sounds like they’re going to have a great time! My son was very excited (I hope he doesn’t plan to get a tattoo!)

      They looked like they were all really excited. It was the 8th grade girl telling her parents not to get tattoos wile she was gone.
