Fourth Grade Williamsburg Trip

On Thursday and Friday, I helped chaperone the fourth grade field trip to Jamestown, Yorktown, and Williamsburg, Virginia. Thirty-seven kids and about 16 adults loaded on the charter bus at 5:30 am Thursday and returned at 8:30 pm on Friday. The weather was pretty mild and clear other than some drizzle Friday morning. My little group was Grant and his good friends William and Brandon.

Day 1 - Jamestown

Firing the musket - always a hit!

Finally able to sit for a bit!
