Well, overall it went much better than expected.
Daddy went with him on chaperone duty.
It wasn’t quite a full day, but there was a tour of a working dairy, a scavenger hunt and a scoop of ice cream.
He loved the scavenger hunt. Particularly as daddy had the brilliant idea to get him to take pictures of the things that he found.
We bought him a FujiFilm instant camera for his birthday – he’s been having loads of fun with it
So that kept him engaged.
He wasn’t quite as enamoured of the dairy. According to the hus-creature he did not wish to learn and was exceedingly sulky.
However he wasn’t the only child with a parental chaperone, and a number of parents decided to come along anyway so there was a ratio of roughly 4 children to one adult.
Oh, and I now have definitely confirmation that #1 Son isn’t the worst behaved in his class. According to the hus-creature:
Ok <child> is worse. They just screamed and spat at another kid
And attacked another kid’s food
Yeah ok #1 Son is not worst
Which is slightly comforting. I would like it though if he did not need chaperoning in order to participate in a field trip.
