My baby! (sob)

I left the oldest at school at 6 AM this morning for the long-anticipated, fifth grade overnight field trip.

I remember my own sixth grade class trip. We went camping for two nights. We had tablets to put in the water in our canteens and powdered orange Tang to diminish the tang of the tablets. We all watched Karl C., the class diabetic, give himself an insulin shot, and Ronnie N. sweated through his shirt while we were hiking, earning him the secret nickname of Wet Ronnie. (Nobody dared say it to his face, he being a good hundred fifty pounds at age 12.)

On an unrelated note, I believe the photo above features the highest concentration of Protective Yellow Bars since this post.
