One of the big differences in school here is the field trips the children go on. There is so much history within driving distance. Grayson's year 5 class left today to go up to Telford for 4 days! That's right, 4 days of not talking to my Grayson. They are visiting all sorts of sights related to the Industrial Revolution. I caught that Iron Gorge was one of them and that they will be taking a ride on a steam train. I know he'll have a great time, but the next few days will be quiet on the home front.
