Joseph received the Dragon Award for Leadership this month. Way to go Joseph. The short assembly to honor the kids was held before school. YIKES! (Not really my best time as I'm trying to get 4 kids and a husband out the door to their various destinations.) They served donuts and juice so the kids were thrilled!Directly following the assembly, Ben's class went on a field trip to the pumpkin patch. As I am not traveling to the hospital anymore I signed up to be a chaperone. I was a little nervous at first as a few people came up to me and asked if I was the mom who just had a baby die. Wasn't exactly ready for that but it all worked out. We had lots of fun and I met some fun moms who have kids in my other kids classes. We'll have to look into that for some play time!As soon as we got back from the field trip I raced home to get started on the laundry as we were scheduled to leave for San Diego that next morning.
