have you ever had one of those weekends where you volunteered to be a chaperon for a field trip, but you were ignored – i mean like your offer was never acknowledged? and it turns out no chaperons were needed because the teacher had asked the parents that are already friends of her family to go with? but you go anyway. and the teacher knows your going and after you ride 4 hours and show up and help with the unloading you’re summarily dismissed? well, if you haven’t i can tell you all about it. and once i’m in better spirits i’ll also tell you how fun it was and how we crashed and participated anyway.
and then – once we got home – the family participated in our first loy krathong lantern release. it was very cool.
