Today my class and I went on a field trip to Fort Clatsop in Warrenton, Oregon. Needless to say, or maybe needful?, my students were excellent. I grow increasingly prouder every day of these kids, I wish I didn't have to give them up in a month. Let's cut to the chase, I am fairly certain I haven't explored Ft. Clatsop since I was a 4th grader, and Mr. Wilson led me around the park as my teacher. Many years later, I brought my students to the fort and Mr. Wilson guided us around the fort, this time as a park ranger. It was a perfect day, my students were brilliant, I had wonderful chaperones, and the weather was beautiful.
