Do you go on field trips with your child's class?

My kids love that I do. For some reason seeing mommy during school time is fifty million times better than seeing her at home.

  • Yes. We usually have a nature walk in the spring but this year we are going to Tweetsie with my dds class for a Letterland day. We have already gone to two plays as well.

  • Our school does not allow siblings to come and I have a younger child still at home so unless I can find a sitter then I don't go.

  • yeah, what aeneva said. As soon as both of my kids are in school I'll definitely give it a shot.

  • I haven't been given enough notice to get the time away from work. I would, but I need to know so far ahead of time, I doubt I will be able to.

  • Yes, I make it to all of them actually:) Fun for me and my kids love it!

  • Never have. I have younger kids at home and their old school you had to have extensive background checks and a 3hr class which was annoying. There was only 1 field trip each year (2 of my kids went on the same trip) and they only needed like 3 chaperons per class.
    So far at their new school only 1 of them has had a field trip. But I have 2 small kids at home so I won't be going on any. I'm not the chaperon kind of person.
