[travel|child] If this is Monday Tuesday, this must be Portland

Home from Dallas via Denver, around midnight here. Saw a coyote on the cross street about three blocks from my house just now. I don't suppose I should be surprised but I was.

I neglected to mention previously that this Monday morning just past the_child has headed off on a Big Adventure. Her entire fourth grade class is on a four day/three night field trip to a teaching ranch here in Oregon. They've all hauled their sleeping bags and toothbrushes under the supervision of their teacher1 and six or eight parents to slop horses and curry hogs and whatever else one does on a ranch. This is her first major trip away from home without a family member.

She was very excited to go, and we spoke on the phone Sunday night, as well as exchanging emails. When she returns, I'll see what I can do by way of a trip report, assuming she's game.




1. - Being as how she attends a Waldorf school, she's had the same teacher since first grade. Mr. C— knows these kids very well indeed.
