What was I thinking?

Greg asked me a couple of weeks ago if I could help chaperone a field trip for his kids. I was thinking "great, I can take the day off from work". Then last Thursday it dawned on me. "Your field trip doesn't happen to be next Tuesday, the 11th, does it?" Yep, you guessed it. I spent my day off with a bunch of 5th graders at the symphony. Although I really did enjoy it. It was the Baylor Symphony and the music had an "animal" theme.

This little gal is a cutie. She told me that Greg told them that I was a good cook (sounds like he prompted them well on what to say). She told Greg "your wife is nice" on the way out the door. I am not sure what this symbol means but I have noticed that all the kids do it when posing for pictures.
The Baylor dance group joined the Symphony, all dressed as an animal, similar to productions of Lion King that I have seen on tv.
The Baylor Bear came out to join this young man as he played the bassoon.
Waco Hall on Baylor campus holds 2,200 and I think it was packed to capacity with kids and teachers.
This young man was all too happy to pose and make faces for me. This was his "mad" face.
More requests for pictures in the bus on the way home.
