Today was exhausting but fun! Our small group of 11 from Big Springs Elementary departed the school just before 6:00am and traveled 5-hours south to Vallejo for "Ocean Discovery Day" at Six Flags.
A huge THANK YOU to Kristen Varga and Deanne Rizzo for all of the planning and support these past several months, as well as volunteering several days as chaperones. Today went off flawlessly, in large part to a smooth running team effort from our two moms.
The kids had a wonderful day, especially during our trip down in the large van. There is some serious talent in the vocal range of these students, however a change in musical taste might serve the whole group better on day #2.
Thanks to everyone who helped to get these kids down here and in providing a top tier 8th Grade Trip! It has already been a memorable experience, and we're just getting started!
Yesterday was a blast! The group went on so many rides including some wet ones! The Boomerang was my first roller coaster ride ever! Kong was a scary ride for me! Even though i tried to laugh while screaming! Maduesa was crazy fun! The drop scared me and i could breathe but it was a blast!
Thankyou to my awesome teacher, all my friend that are like a family, and the extrodionary moms that came on the trip with us!

What an absolutely great class of 2013. A perfect first day of the class trip. Awesome kids, especially for so little sleep. We are off to the Boardwalk today, lots of fun, smiles, stories and laughs. Thank you 8th graders, 8th grade patents, Mr Hosler and Mrs Rizzo.
Yesterday was AH-MAZING! Other than the fact that we had to wake up SUPER early, everything wassuper cool! I had a tons and tons of fun!
It all began, when I got up at 5 in the morning. I arrived at the school at exactly 5:45. Gracie and Emi were already there so we just talked.
Around six, we left the school. On the car ride to six flags, we sang and danced. I hit my head on the dash, though! And let me tell you, that was NOT fun!
We arrived at six flags a bit late, so we had to run to the buffet. we still arrived on time, though. After we ate, we went on this spinny ride and while Conner and Rudy spinned the bowl, Gracie and I played paddy cake!(:
We all left six flags with either a stuffed animal or a cape. And i do mean a cape, like supermans cape! It was totally awesome!
On the car ride to the hotel, we made up raps! And by we, I mean Gracie and I. By the end of the car ride everyone either had a headache or wasrapping and or singing with us.
The night ended with us having a pizza party in the hotel. Right now I'm hearing Emily and Lily giggling over Austin powers, Conner and Rudy half asleep, Amber and Grace fighting over a computer, and Emi giggling and talking to either Mr.Hosler or Rudy..... Now Emily's reading over my shoulder......uh-oh. Bye guys, gotta go take pictures...oh the joy!
so i didnt go on any cool rides, and cryed on sky sceamer. hopefully today is better. i cant wait to go to the gin blossom's concert. no much sheep, though we do have a long ride. might as well sleep then right?glad to be here. having the greatest 8th grade trip ever. thatnks to thoughs who help us get here.

So the day started off with a 5 am wake up call yesterday.Not that fun,but the trip down was very fun!We went from 2 cars to 1 BIG van,lets just say that we are very loud!
When we made it to Six Flags all of us were very exxcited.My favorit ride was the Musdua!The first time i went on it i felt like i was going to fly out of the seat...Scary!!!!
Last night web had pizza and pool party whitch was ALOT of fun! Even though when i was swiming, I swam into the wallof the pool.Now I have A HUGE bumb on my head!
Thank You for all of those who have helped support us!!!
Yesterday, was super fun! I think everyone had lots of fun as well. The car ride down was interesting. After the long car ride, we finally made it to Six Flags. Then we got to the hotel and swam, then it was lights out.
The car ride was very long. Although tired, we had fun and entertained each other. Although, we all learned we must have plenty of sleep.
When at Six Flags, we ate lunch, went on rides, and played games. Although we still tried to have fun when literally everyone was tired. So I guess you could say it was tiring, and, fun!
Off to Santa Cruz...
Our group is departing for the Boardwalk. We have about an hour drive, and then will be at the park all day. Check back for additional blogs & pictures this afternoon / evening.
Also, just down the street, the SAN JOSE SHARKS are preparing to play the L.A. Kings this afternoon in an NHL Playoff Game. We might have to take a detour on the way home and check out HP Pavilion..., and hopefully a SHARKS VICTORY!
