Jackson's field trip

Jackson's class went on a field trip to a cave, McDonald's, and a Natural History Museum.  Smith, Mollie Jane and I met up with them at McDonald's and it was a good thing because Jackson might have starved eating only one cheeseburger and apples!  We ate with him and then headed to the history museum where they talked a lot about Missouri archaeological history and all the caves and then about fossils.  It was very interesting.  Smith got asked to leave because he was a "loud guy" and talking about everything in the museum.  He thought it was interesting too.  Smith ended up watching a DVD in the car with another Mom while we finished the presentation. The kids got to go through the museum and the big deal was there was a gift shop where you could buy rocks and all sorts of things.  Jackson took all his allowance and decided he needed to buy his sister a gemstone ring which was on sale for $1.00.  It was really priceless though cauz all he bought was something for Sissy and he let her pick it out.  She felt like a million bucks.  We then went on a hike by a cave and dug for fossils.  It got a little windy and cold for my tasted but the kids had a blast and Jackson says it was the best field trip he has ever had.  Now he and Mollie Jane are spending lots of time exploring rocks outside our house and trying to hall them all inside!
