Last week I went on a 3 day trip to northern Michigan with my oldest daughter's class, we spent one day on Mackinac Island. Most of our day there was spent riding bikes and playing at the beach. The weather was beautiful, the island as lovely as it always is. The kids had just enough time to buy the requisite fudge and the ferry ride to the island was a treat for so many of them. My parents have a cottage in northern Michigan and my family sometimes takes our many trips up north for granted.
It was fun to see my daughter's classmates enjoying themselves swimming and biking and hiking. It was also a great opportunity to get to know them and some of their parents better.
