My Big Boy

We hit another milestone in our house today...Graham's first field trip! He's been so incredibly excited to ride the school bus to the zoo and carry his 'Cars' lunch bag. Of course I couldn't let him experience his first field trip without me (the thought of him a bus alone chokes me up!), so I was pleased to chaperon. Despite the rainy, cold weather, there was nowhere I'd rather have been.

Graham was happy to hold my hand and share an umbrella as our group was herded through the exhibits. I can't help but marvel at how much Graham has grown this year and I found myself wondering how many years we have before it's not 'cool' to have your Mom along on a class field trip. For the time being though, I'm just going to soak up the time that Graham thinks I'm one of the coolest people on the planet and enjoy the fact that he genuinely enjoys spending time with me.

All ready for the zoo...complete with St. Andrew t-shirt (all the kids wear them so we can easily spot them) and 'Cars' lunch bag!

How fun! Hope he has just a blast;) He's getting so big I just can't believe it...
