Field Trip

“How was school today, honey?”
“It was great, Mom! I went on an adventure and saw tigers!”
I don’t remember signing a permission slip for a field trip to the zoo. Jeff probably signed it without telling me. Hmm…we are going to have a little talk tonight.
“I’m glad you had fun, Tommy.”
At ten o’clock, Jeff came home from work.
“So, Tommy had a fun time on his field trip today.”
“What field trip?”
“The one you let him go to without telling me.”
“What are you talking about?”
“You mean you didn’t sign a permission slip?” Jeff shook his head. I couldn’t believe it. Why would Mrs. Gerrow take her class on a field trip without giving out permission slips?
Tomorrow when I pick him up, I’ll ask her.
The school bell rang just as I parked my car. I met Tommy at the school doors and he immediately began telling me about his adventures, this time with lions. I walked faster.
“Hello, Mrs. Gerrow. How was your field trip?” I forced a smile.
“Field trip? I don’t know what you’re talking about.”
“You mean you didn’t take your class to the zoo yesterday?” Her reaction was exactly like Jeff’s.
When I went back to my car, I was extremely worried. Tommy had some explaining to do. I found Tommy reading a book called “Sunset of the Sabertooth” by Mary Pope Osborne.
“Hi, Mom! I’m on going on another adventure!”
