Tomorrow Olivia starts fifth grade. Before that happens, I figured I better get busy and post the pictures I took from her last fourth grade field trip. I was a good mom, and went as a chaperone. Fortunately, this field trip was slightly more appealing than the dump.
Here we are on the bus on the way to This is the Place State Park. Nothing like a hot windy bus ride on a bus full of exuberant 4th graders at nine in the morning to wake you up and get that blood pumping.
Olivia hated the handcarts. Like really really despised them. Those two boys in the back did not help much, they were pushing a lot faster than the girls in the front were pulling. It was a lesson in teamwork that made the team want to shoot each other.
This was such a hot day- it was about 100 degrees, and they were working pretty hard getting that handcart up some hills. Olivia did not want to be there, and as usual, expressed herself very adamantly. She managed to work herself up into quite a dither. She started to cry. I thought she would be embarrassed to be crying in front of her classmates. Instead, her sweet friend Serra gave her suckers, and several other girls came up to her to console her and pat her on the back.
The best part of the kids day was going to the Energy Solutions Arena and running around on the Jazz floor.
Her fourth grade class. It's not a great picture, but she is in there somewhere.
Okay, that about wraps up the fourth grade. We can bring on fifth grade now. Even though it's July.
