So I rarely live out my dreams in the kids. I figured I had my chance, but this was one thing I couldn't pass up. I missed the target program in school by a couple points. Rob missed by a couple points. Jared missed the first couple times and Kevin missed as well. I think I would have loved being in target but it wasn't meant to be. I do however remember the day in fifth grade when "our" sharks came in. I was coming up with every excuse I could think of to get a glimpse of them. I finally found them in the library, on a plastic sheet looking NOTHING like they do when we are on the boat. Now mind you, I have grown up with shark fishing and "dissection" but this was different, this was with my friends and this was gross! Plus I knew I could handle it where as Susie-squirmy sitting next to me wouln't.
SO they needed chaperones for Jared's Target class for the 4th &5th grade field trip to do their Shark Dissection. Who went? I did!!! YIPIEE, only 20 ought years later :) I had a blast and I had my camera. Thanks to the wonderful clarity of my Nikon, you too will feel like you were right there. :)
I also took pics for Karen since she was away and missed it, lucky for me, Katie and Jared were in the same group so that made my job easier and I could oogle at the dead fish instead.
