3rd Grade Field Trip

The 3rd graders at Allison's elementary school got to go on a field trip to the Fort Worth Museum of Natural Science and History. They took the bus over, while the parents/chaperones followed in cars, and got to explore the museum. The first part of the day included watching the show, Forces of Nature, at the Omni Theater. The show was about tornadoes, volcanoes, and earthquakes. Let's just say that the IMAX theater experience and the information about natural disasters was not a good combination for Allison, and she cried and clung to me through much of the show. I thought it was fascinating, but she barely survived. Afterwards we were able to enjoy a picnic lunch on the museum grounds. It was a beautiful day outside, and we enjoyed feeling the warm sun. The second part of the day included a presentation on space at the Planetarium. We learned about the planets, stars, moon, and vast solar system. This was much more enjoyable for her! It was a fun day for us, and I loved getting to be around Allison, her classmates, and her teacher!
