So, today was Benjamin’s first big “end of the year” school trip. Not just his class, but the whole school, went. They rode a big bus to get there. There were pony rides. It sounds like it was awesome.
Unfortunately, he didn’t get to go. His fever finally broke, about 4-something in the morning, and he was able to get a little sleep. VERY little (he woke up just before 6). He was exhausted, miserable, and still feeling pretty awful. So, he had to stay home today — even though it was the day of the big school trip. He was happy to get to stay home today, but when I explained that he’d be missing the trip, he suggested we ask the teachers, when we go to school tomorrow, if they could just take a trip tomorrow, also. It was so sweet and so sad. My poor guy.
I know it’s ok. I know it’s important for me to teach him that taking care of his health is a higher priority than missing out on a trip. But, I am so sorry he wasn’t able to go.
