Last Friday Noah went on his first field trip. This of course meant SCHOOL BUS! Noah has been on a school bus before (at a Truck Touch event earlier this year), but this was his first bus ride…and he loved it!
And here’s a quick video of his first bus ride. As a quick reminder, if you’re reading this post in an email, you may need to open the blog webpage in order to view the video.

So where did the kids go? The Polar Bear class went to the National Air & Space Museum! They saw lots of planes, NASA equipment, space junk and so much more. If Ryan had been a chaperone too, he could elaborate more on what we saw (he’s the space and aviation junkie in the family). I’ll just show pictures. Check it out!
Ryan has been teaching Noah the various types of planes (they read lots of books about planes), so it was fun it see Noah point out the jet planes, biplanes, fighter planes, etc.
We of course had to stop by the gift shop on the way out. Noah got a cool new space shuttle Discovery…and he had fun showing his new toy to the other kids during “show and share” time. The other kids got fun planes and rockets too!
This was Noah’s third trip to the Air & Space museum. His first trip was last summer when Grandma Debbie, Grandpa Rod, his aunt Jennifer, and his cousin Nathan visited from South Dakota (before I started this blog). And his second trip to the museum was for a mom and kiddo play date earlier this year. If you missed the post about our play date at the Air & Space museum, you can read it here.
If you read this blog frequently, you know that Noah LOVES airplanes. He’s actually been on eight plane trips already (seven to South Dakota and one to Ohio). Yep, he’s already a frequent flyer! He’s been asking to go on another plane trip – he misses his grandparents. We will definitely fly again soon. In the meantime, he’ll have to settle for watching the planes take off and land at Gravelly Point (one of our favorite local outings) and reading his plane books before bedtime.
