One of the things I love about Agape is that the teachers are fearless and adventurous. They will take the kids anywhere. Hour and a half bus ride (each way) to get to The Museum of Flight? Okay! Transfer buses three times with 20 kids? Okay! Take them all on a ferry to an island? Okay!
And, dang, there are A LOT of field trips. During the school year, there is probably one a month. They might go to a puppet show or a movie or to the Children’s Theater. But the summer is the time when they take advantage of our glorious weather and get the kids out and about to explore their city. I’m not exaggerating when I tell you they had a field trip almost every day during July and August.
For some larger trips parent volunteers get to go along, and Jeff and I each got an opportunity to go on a field trip during the summer. Ellie was thrilled!
These first few pictures are from the trip I chaperoned – taking the monorail to Experience Music Project (EMP).
These are some pictures from the trip Jeff went on to Bainbridge Island.
And here are photos from a smattering of trips by other parents and teachers who were thoughtful enough to bring along their cell phone cameras and post pictures after, and sometimes during, the trip (so we could all live vicariously through our children while we are at work).
