Last Friday Ivan went on an excursion with his kindergarten… to the national muzium. My first reaction was like, “What? How come other kids are going to petting zoos and bird parks, but my son’s kindy brings them to muziums?!?!” However, I did let him participate, as most of his class is going, and I certainly do not want him to miss out on this experience.
The next thought which comes to mind is: will he get LOST? You know how kids are, and with a kindy as big as the one he is attending, I seriously had worries *LOL*. My SILs told me that hubs was lost, at the very same excursion, at the very same school, last time after numerous remindings from his mum not to wander off by himself. OMG! *faints*
Hubs tried waking Ivan up at 6.45am that morning, he actually cried and wanted to go back to sleep (his normal class starts at 11-ish am). After some coaxing, he finally let me change him and I took him to his school. So many parents were there, and seems like a million other kids were there too *LOL*.
I reconfirmed with his teacher that they are capable of handling these kids, and was reassured. So I snapped some pictures and went off to work. Before the excursion, they were actually lining up the kids for a group photo (how to line up a million of them, I was wondering)… something for the school’s centenery celebration.
At the end, it all went well, and this little boy came home a happy camper. Here are some snippets of what he got out of this little outing.
