I enjoy the fact that my blog is predominantly about stamping and stamping related things. However, I think I'm fairly lucky in that I have a wonderful readership and that I can share things with you as well.
Yesterday I went on the most amazing field trip with Emma's class. I think it is honestly the best field trip I have ever been on. It was to the Tillsonburg aiport. For those of you that live in the London area, I'm sure you're thinking....really.....Tillsonburg airport? That's what I thought when the permission form came home.
The focus of the field trip was educational and linked to the Grade six science curriculum on flight. I learned a ton about flight and air pressure and we did some wonderful experiments. The kids enjoyed this immensely and it was a great learning day! We got to tour the facility, see the plans and experience the history of the Harvard aircraft (these are training planes from the World War II era).
Near the end of the day, the focus then switched from science to life. There were amazing presentations on and about our Veterans. One of the volunteers is the daughter of Charlie Fox, a Canadian War Hero, and the stories that she shared were very touching and real.
If you have any interest in flight or planes (which truly I didn't think I did, but now I want to learn more) I encourage you to check out this link (CLICK HERE). If you have children in the London area, let your schools know what an amazing opportunity this trip is. And please take a moment today to reflect upon our Veterans and heros and the sacrifices they made to make our lives possible.
Thanks for reading!
