For the first grade field trip, they were going to go to the zoo. The day Brinley found out, she called me during her lunch to tell me about it and to see if I'd be able to go. I told her I'd have to see about babysitting. I got things worked out with my mom and told her teacher I could do it, but there were too many parents that wanted to go so they did a drawing and my name didn't get picked. Oh well. Brinley was really sad. A few days later, I get a call from Brinley's teacher telling me I could go if I wanted but I'd have to drive or carpool with someone. I was pretty sure I'd be able to get someone or possibly my mom to watch my girls, but I had a hard time. Both my sisters couldn't, my sister-in-law couldn't, some neighbors that I tried couldn't, Shawn couldn't, a friend couldn't, my mother-in-law had surgery, and my mom had to quickly get out of something which she didn't think she could. So I just thought I wouldn't go, but when Brinley heard that I wasn't going she was SO SAD! She called Shawn begging and crying to him to stay home from work but he couldn't. Then she called my mom crying and begging her to come. Well, my mom cracked. She called and was luckily able to get out of her commitment and came here to watch Cambree and Sadie. She's so awesome! So things were very last-minute but it all worked out. I got to go!
And we had a great time! I just had to keep track of Brinley and 2 other girls while we were at the zoo. Piece of cake. Even the weather was a little iffy, but it rained at all the right times where we had covering.
Here are "my girls"!
Brinley, I'm so glad I got to come along with you! I especially love that you WANTED me there. I hope you always want me around.
