St. Petersburg International Folk Fair Society festival

Thursday I somehow got roped into chaperoning on a fieldtrip for the gifted center at Mack’s school. If you are following along and paying attention, this is the third day in a row that I volunteered at Mack’s school. I think I deserve a medal or something.

Outfit of the volunteering day (OOTVD) #3 this week:

SPIFFS-4

The adult restroom in the school’s office has been transformed to a Thanksgiving/Fall theme obviously.

SPIFFS-5

SPIFFS-6

I had a pretty bad attitude about being back at the school because fieldtrips are not my favorite thing, especially when I have to ride on a school bus which I was slated to do.

SPIFFS-9

Luckily things started looking up when my friend, the other Caroline, arrived and it turned out that I could ride in her car.

SPIFFS-10

In the end it was a great fieldtrip and my mood improved as the day wore on. It was all worth it because Mack told me repeatedly that he was so glad that I was there and thanked me for coming on the fieldtrip several times.

SPIFFS-8

I’m sorry that I’m a fieldtrip curmudgeon. I’ve just been there/done that but I know that I should cherish these days when my kids are still young and I that I am very privileged to be able to be involved with all these school activities.

The St. Petersburg International Folk Fair Society festival was awesome! There was so much to see and do. The kids had a blast and I have to admit that I did too. We got to meet many interesting people, learn things about many cultures, eat some good food, and see dolphins in the bay.

So here’s 129 (unedited) photos from our fun day:

 

Thanks for looking!
