Base de Plein Air

On Friday, Sean’s class took a field trip to Base de Plein Air des Cèdres. We weren’t sure what to expect, but we had a great time. We were 17 kids in Sean’s class, 3 parents and his teacher. The other 3 kindergarten classes came along as well.

Sean had a great time learning how to use a bow & arrow.

He’s my little natural athlete, if you ask me.

He’s got great aim!

He had a lot of fun on an obstacle course.

And we all got a turn on a zip line. It was my first time and a ton of fun.

I took over 1250 pictures of Sean’s class on Friday. I just finished burning a DVD of pictures for each of the kids who were on the field trip. It’ll go to school with Sean tomorrow and sent home in each kids’ school bag. Every event I’ve photographed this year, I’ve sent home a DVD-R full of pictures for each parent. I really hope they appreciate the pictures, to see what their child was up to when they couldn’t be there. I hope I get the chance to go on this field trip again next year with Mackenzie’s kindergarten class, even if I get all bitten up again. (I sprayed myself with OFF! and still got eaten alive – by mosquitoes and I think black flies as well – I want to rip my legs off they are sooo itchy!)

That's such a good idea, I wish someone would have done that for my kids' trips, I haven't been able to make it to any. Sometimes the teachers will post pictures though.

We went to a Base de plein air every year when I was a kid. It was a lot of fun! :)

It's so nice of you to burn DVDs for every parent!

I always burned DVD's of pictures when I went on trips or at school basketball games. I know the parents really appreciated it.
My son just got back from 3 days in Montreal (grade 8 grad trip). THey had a blast doing astronaut training, ghost walks and other stuff! I made him bring me 4 dozen St. Viateur bagels on the bus!

That is so cool you send pictures home for them. If I wasn't able to go on my sons trips I would love that.
