The first exciting aspect of this field trip is the security. It is like going into the airport. When we drove up, the security officers made me get out of the car, open all the doors, and pop the hood. Sadly, I had no idea how to pop the hood on my mini-van. I didn't want to think I was driving a car that was not mine, so I had to act cavalier until I figured it out. They let the girls stay in their car seats as they searched my entire car, including under the car.
Then, we parked. When we entered the building, I had to show my picture ID and complete some forms for each of us. We were all issued security badges to wear on our shirts. It's a good thing that children do not need picture IDs, because my kids don't have them.
