A Night On The Midway
My daughter's fifth grade class stayed the night on the Midway - the world's largest aircraft carrier in San Diego, California. She slept in a bunk, was treated like a sailor and had to salute her superiors, she ate really bad food, and got to go in a real fighter jet!!!! She had a blast.
I loved that my kid was able to experience this... She learned a little bit about US history. Learned a little about Desert Storm.. a little bit about Vietnam War... She learned a little bit about aviation.. She got to fly in a simulator three times... She bought lots of candy for herself and a golf ball for her dad... She got to be a kid.
She left yesterday afternoon at 2:00 PM and returned today at 1:00 PM. She said she did not sleep a wink.. looking at the pictures... I would believe it....
