Mystic Seaport, Connecticut

Samantha's class took a trip to Mystic on 5/30/2008. I was lucky enough to be chosen as a chaperone, and even luckier that the only kid I had to be in charge of was my own!! We left the school at 6:45 am, returned at 8:30 pm. It was a 3 hour ride (thank goodness for the motion sickness patch I was able to take!) We were on our own for about 7 hours in the seaport. Mostly we hung around with Sarah and her mom, and Bella and Heather and their dads.

We got to take a ride on a boat which almost put me to sleep!!


Mostly we just walked around and looked at everything. Some of the little houses/stores etc. had people in them, and they would tell us all about the building and what went on back in the 1800s.

I got stuck looking at a rowing exhibit- the girls left me alone with a guide who was *very* talkative. It was interesting, but....

And then, when I was finally able to leave, I went outside and the girls were giggling. Turns out when they were leaving a woman said "Wasn't there an old lady with you?" I've never been called an OLD LADY before!!!

It was a really beautiful day, not too hot and not too cold. Made walking around very pleasant.
It was great day, a fun trip, nice to spend time with just Samantha.

And Samantha, by the way, is the BEST student ever! The kids were given packets of questions that they had to answer. All 3 other girls said "We don't really have to do it" but Samantha made sure she got every question done. She is so wonderful!!
