Tomorrow this boy and I are going on a field trip. A charter bus is taking us a couple hours away for the day, along with a bunch of other kids.
I miss homeschooling and taking field trips with my kids on a regular basis, so I'm really glad I was able to go along.
I asked him tonight if he would sit next to me on the bus, and he turned to look at me and said "yes". Like "duh, mom, of course I'll sit with you!"
I truly love spending time with my kids, and apparently they still like it, too.
