Field tripping

Today I strapped the little kids in the stroller and we walked behind Claire's kindergarten class in a field trip to the local cemetery. That might sound a little creepy, but our local cemetery is 150 years old and has some amazing memorials and monuments. 

Herman Melville 

Joseph Pulitzer

And Elizabeth Cady Stanton

It was quite chilly as we started off and I felt like a terrible mother because my kids were only wearing hoodies, but by lunch time the temp was up to 65.  I chatted with some of the other parents, and when we first started out we were saying that when you look at 50 Kindergartners it doesn't look like that many people. 

By the end of the trip we all agreed that it looked like a lot more people than it had at the beginning
