What to wear on a five hour outdoor field trip when it’s only 40 degrees?
I admit I’ve never been on a field trip with Esther. Mom guilt here. I’ve been with Eloise and somehow always chose wisely – you know like going to a play or the art museum or a concert. Inside cultural stuff.
So how I ended up going on a five hour HIKE – OUTSIDE – IN THE WOODS – IN THE COLD with a bunch of six year olds is beyond me. All of the other parents showed up in jeans, hiking boots, North Face puffer jackets and wool mittens.
I was not that prepared. And I was cold, which is why after four hours of hiking I took the four girls in my care to a restaurant for hot cocoa and cookies. They told me it was the BEST FIELD TRIP EVER. Cocoa trumps nature any day. Right?
