Aidan is in the gifted and talented program at his school. I really dislike the name of this program - it sounds all snooty and elitist - so I prefer to call it G&T. Makes me think of my most favorite adult beverage!
Anyway - the G&T program went on a field trip today to our local Ft. Campbell museum. They've been studying flight so going to look at a bunch of airplanes and helicopters was perfect. I really wanted to chaperone but they weren't going to be back in time for me to pick Emmy up so Aoife and I crashed the fieldtrip and showed up for a half and hour while they were running around outside. The kids got to actually go inside of some of the aircraft and Aoife and I joined them in a Chinook. It was pretty cool!!
If you're wondering - there are a lot of kids wearing camouflage in the pictures because it is spirit day and that's what they were supposed to wear. It's not that Army kids just dig wearing camo.
