Field trip!

Guess what I was doing at oh-dark-thirty this morning.  I was boarding a big charter bus full of 3rd graders.  We spent the day in Chattanooga touring Rock City and Ruby Falls, and thanks to a lot of caffeine and four ibuprofen, I really enjoyed the day with Torin and her friends.  Rock City was my favorite.  Even though I never could figure out what state we were in (Tennessee?  Georgia?), the views were gorgeous.  Ruby Falls was very pretty, too, it’s just that I don’t enjoy being 1,120 feet below the surface.  I think it’s sweet that Leo Lambert took his wife, Ruby, half a mile into a dark cave to show her the waterfall that he had discovered and named in her honor, but if if I had been Ruby, I would’ve said “thanks but no thanks… I’ll wait right here at the entrance.”  Here are a few iPhone pictures of our fabulous field trip!
