The field trip was a mixed bag. I blatently set aside Teacher's car rule for volume level, but only while on the interstate. The boys loved it. We had screaming contests, and singing and the whole bit.

The planetarium itself was a bust. They had technical difficulties with the video projector -- it's not just a star show anymore -- and couldn't get them resolved. They refunded the school's money and handed out vouchers, so the field will probably be re-scheduled.

And now I've finished lunch, I have time for some actual housework. Woo hoo!

    Tuesday - Orange
