There haven’t been too many local field trips this year. The kids and I have gone on outings, but I mean actual school functions. There was that amazing one at the beginning of the year – INFINITY Space Center – that was really awesome! The Friday before Mardi Gras there was a trip to the Chalmette Battlefield, which is local. We decided to go and my wife got o go with us.
I have lived here my whole life and been to the battlefield many times. We went on field trips, as teenagers, I run there from time to time, bike ride, learned to drive with my father there – I have never been in the visitors center. That center has been revamped since hurricane Katrina and it is AWESOME!!! We learned a lot and we totally enjoyed ourselves, even though we were the only kids there aside from the teacher and her children!
