I volunteer in Mrs. Reynolds' fourth grade class every Monday. Usually I'll grade papers, or administer a spelling test, or other fun scholastic activities. Last week I even did a lesson on recycling for Earth Day.
This past Monday I did something so awesome.
I chaperoned a field trip to Zion National Park! The weather was gorgeous and the kids were, overall, well behaved.
We sat on the lawn in front of the lodge, did some educational worksheets, played, and ate lunch.

After lunch, we loaded on the bus and did a very short hike to Weeping Rock.

|Can you see them? There are two of them right in the middle of the photo on a ledge. (It works if you click on the image, right-click→View image and zoom in.)|
|I thought this was rather picturesque. So I took a picture.|
This week is a free admission week at the Park, so I might go on "study day" on Friday. Or I might actually study. Or I might do both.
