Having been a "band geek" myself I chuckled when Morgyn decided to go into band last year. Well when she came home saying Mr. Saul had decided where the gr 8/9 band trip is going I was scared. Ok, drum roll. California here they come! Yep he has decided to do a band trip to California.
Now as a mother I have to think back to my own band trips (which I might add didn't start until gr. 10). They were fun, yes they were. There might have been a few illegal drinking activities going on. Said mother might have gotten caught in the act on said band trips, and then getting herself suspended. Ooops.
But I digress. I as this mother had to decide whether I wanted to send my child off without us into another country for 5 very long days. I needed to put my fears aside of doing so and come to the conclusion that she is being offered a chance of a lifetime. So we decided to let her go!
Sounds like it will be a fun trip I mean Disneyland, San Diego Zoo, Mission Beach and a trip to Hard Rock Cafe. I think I am jealous LOL. My band trips went to Moose Jaw, SK.
I will not lie and say that I'm not scared to death letting her go all by herself, but going as a chaperon isn't feasible with 2 other kids. But again I can't let my fears control me. Anyone have any tips on souvenir shopping LOL??
