Our trip has been so much fun and it’s been so very, very exhausting!
So far, we’ve been to 3 schools in Tennessee and one in Virginia and we’ve finally arrived in Pennsylvania. We aren’t making the best time, so we are going to have to pick up our pace a bit to make it all the way to California…but it is so hard to leave and sometimes we get stuck in the big, brown truck never to be heard from again.
The last time we got lost, the extremely creative first graders at Schoolfield Elementary School in Danville, VA had some great ideas where we might be. They thought that maybe we:
were looking for frogs and sharks by the Dan River which is exactly what we wish we had been doing.
or we stopped by SkateTown so I could teach Milo how to skate, but I don’t know how to skate either so that would have been funny to watch.
or we got hungry and stopped at McDonald’s then Bubba’s for ice cream.
or we went to the fair and rode the ferris wheel – oh how I wish!
or we snuck into the school gym and jumped rope. I do love to jump rope!
But, nope to all of these fun things! We were in our box, snuggled together on a big brown truck. The first truck driver was a great singer and he sang all the time! That ride was fun. The second driver giggled a lot at the radio and that ride was bumpy and then we got sent to a big warehouse and we stayed there a million days until FINALLY we were rescued and on our way to Danville!
Thank you Schoolfield Elementary School! We loved our time with you.
We have now arrived in Pennsylvania. Stay tuned. I wonder what we will do here, I’ve never been to Pennsylvania but that is a very, very long word and spelling it takes a bit of practice.
Bye for now!
