On our final day on the 5th grade adventure, we once again boarded the bus at 7:15 and headed out of the Northern Virginia area. It was a rainy day as we headed to Petersburg to tour Pamplin Park. We spent about five hours there and I was super impressed with the whole experience.
We enjoyed a boxed lunch on the bus and stopped for dinner along the way home. We made it back to the school right around 8:00. John and Lily were there to pick us up and it was so great to see them.
Shelly and I had a terrific time on our trip together. I was a little melancholy knowing that this was our final overnight field trip with her school. I've been on seven overnight trips with the girls' elementary school and it is hard to believe all of the things we have seen and done on these field trips. They really have a very special elementary school.
