Last week I got to go along with Maddie's class on a field trip. This is the first one that I've gone on since I had John, so this was a big deal. Her class got to go to the Physical Science Lab at Chico State. Students planning on becoming science teachers were there to demonstrate experiments for the children and give them some hands-on learning experiences. It was just fantastic. Maddie was enthralled! She loves science and especially likes to get in there and work on it herself, rather than just read about it. She has a wonderful teacher and just lovely kids in her class. I couldn't be happier this year for her!
