Reese’s kindergarten field trip happened to fall on a Tuesday this year, so Joe and I were both able to go with her!  Reese came with her class on the bus, and while we were waiting for them to arrive one of the people on the staff told us that they were expecting 600 kids from different schools that day.  It was PACKED!
