Our trip to Ottawa

During the last week of school I boarded a school bus to be a chaperone on Aidan's class trip to Ottawa. We left at 8:30 in the morning and headed to Ottawa to the Aviation Museum. My group was all boys (of course) and they just loved it. During the morning, they had a session experimenting with different objects to study how sound is created.

In the afternoon we got to wander through the museum to check out the different aircraft. The boys all loved the helicopters and the fighter planes best (of course).

Here is a photo of the ceiling in the soundproof Hall of Remembrance at the museum - this is Aidan's favourite photo from the trip.

After the museum we had a short visit at the Royal Canadian Mint. Much to Aidan's dismay we did not get to make any money and there were no free samples (he's trying to save up for his next Lego set, you know)! Here is Aidan's buddy, David.

We got back to the school at 6:00 pm. All of the parents were exhausted but the kids were going strong! I've decided that school buses are no place for "thirty-somethings".
