My elder daughter was hesitant to have me accompany her for this year’s school field trip. Oh kids nowadays! There is this slight hurt inside (she is growing up so fast) of course but I told her that I may allow her to go alone next school year’s field trip instead. Her close friends did not have companions, that is why she would like to try to be independent too. I understand her but she understood me too. I am but a worried mom who would like to spend time with her and so as ensure her safety everytime.
Our first destination was the “Mind Museum” at The Fort. The kids got to explore outside in the Science-in-the-Park ares and indoors too. Keanna even mentioned that this is such a cool place. There were other schools at that time so we somehow waited outside for our turn. Most kids, High School students, grabbed the opportunity to buy food from the Jollibee branch at The Canopy Plaza. Others, including us, took the time to play and enjoy outdoors.
The Mind Museum is a perfect place for young explorers to know more, and enjoy Science. Proudly a Filipino concept, The Mind Museum is a huge learning venue for young minds – for adults too! It was not just Keanna who enjoyed that exploration at The Mind Museum’s interactive exhibit – me too!
After our Science exploration, we head off to a fun and literally wet part of the trip – Splash Island Resort! Keanna and her friends enjoyed an afternoon dip at the resort’s pools. It was also at the resort where we were served our lunch meals. I took the time to somehow rest a little as I did not bother swim even if some other parents did. Glad I was able to recharge my netbook but unfortunately did not get the chance to go online for work as the place do not have free Wi-Fi. I wish they have it available like with Mind Museum. Some of the pools in Splash Island resort were not open the time we arrived. We have learned that each pool have their availability schedules. Even so, the kids still had a great time at the resort. It was a tiring but fun-filled and educational field trip.
At the end of the day, both Keanna and I did not regret that we were together for this memorable field trip. And, she might still change her mind for next year. Ha ha!
