Jelly Beans

Ernest's 8th grade class took a field trip to the Reagan Library last week. I skipped this one...hanging with the whole class of 8th graders is too much like lunch duty! However, I am driving to Hearst Castle for the next CJSF field trip.

Ernest liked Air Force One a lot, but he couldn't take pictures inside. He was fascinated with how they built the building. The side walls were built, the plane was put in, then they added the end walls and the roof. My curious architect.

Now this is an interesting portrait.

Scary jelly bean teeth!

The kids were told to dress like you're going to work at the White House. Ernest had a white dress shirt and tie, and since he didn't have a suit jacket he wore his trench coat. I'm sure they wear trench coats in DC in the winter.

I did find a blue pinstripe suit jacket in my costume closet, but Ernest didn't want to wear it. It clashed with his black pants. That was a thrift shop find for Frank when he had a history class dress-up a couple years ago. I found a packet of Pop Tarts in the pocket. Eeew, gross, 2-3 year old Pop Tarts!

I wonder how old those jelly beans are.

I've always wanted to see Hearst Castle. I wish I'd gone back when I lived in Calif.

That is so cool about the airplane!

I'm so jealous. I want to see inside that plane. Da plane! Da plane!

Pop Tarts! Recently, Laura borrowed one of my jackets to wear to school and later I found about ten Smarties wrappers in the pocket. She got them at school? WTHeck?
