"Harry, Harry, Please Come Home!"

Today we went on our very first Kindergarten Field Trip. We started our day by putting on our new Kindergarten T-Shirts so that we would all match. Our shirts are black and white and boy did we look sharp! We had to make sure that we all had a lunch and then we took a bathroom break before we got on the bus to head to downtown Jacksonville. The bus ride was bumpy and fog was in the air. It looked like we were in the clouds as we drove across the big bridge. We arrived at the park. It was right next to the stadium where the Jaguars play. The playground was neat with lots of cool stuff to play on. After we played for a while we sat together to enjoy lunch. We were lucky to find some shade because it sure was a hot day especially for October. After lunch it was time to make our way to the Florida Theatre. It was a really fancy place with lots of seats and a big stage. It is one of the oldest theatres in Jacksonville. We heard that Grandma Ellis once went to the very same theatre to see some famous guy named "Elvis" sing. We were at the theatre to see a play of one of our favorite books, Harry the Dirty Dog. There were four actors in the show who sang and danced as they told the story of Harry. We loved it! Once the show was over, it was time to head back to one our favorite places, Chets Creek. We ended our day with a snack and some playtime on our playground. We were so lucky to have so many moms and dads come with us on our trip. It was just about a perfect day. We wished that Mrs, Ellis (who was at an important math meeting) and a few of our friends (who were sick) would have been there with us. That would have made our day absolutely perfect!

Cole loved his first time on a school bus. He said "it was a bumpy ride but really awesome"! He also loved the performance of Harry the Dirty Dog. "What a great first field trip" he said. Thanks
