Senior trip to Dizzy-Land

  1. DD#1 is at D-Land right now on her senior trip. She's having a blast and I'm almost in tears. DS went last year and I felt the same way then. Brought back some bad memories. I didn't get to go on mine because of family issues, including lack of money...my parents couldn't afford to let me go at the time. I've been to D-Land many times since then, but senior trip is different.


    *sigh*

    Our school district doesn't do Senior Trips any more due to too many kids getting in trouble with alcohol and other things. The kids ruined it for themselves. . .

    Tazzi,

    I actually know how you feel; I didn't get to go on my Senior Class trip either--also because money was tight then.

    Geez, almost 50 years later & I still feel kind of sad about it too!!

    We went during choir tour (sang at D-land, too, back in the days when you didn't have to submit a demo CD and promise that EVERY member of the group would attend, etc).

    Our senior ditch day was floating down the Russian River in canoes. It was a GREAT DAY!!!

    No Senior trip for our HS.
    However Robotics club (30 members) get to go to national FIRST robotic competition each year, was in Disney World my oldest Jr year. Band (400 members) travels yearly to perform @Disney World so 1/3 school on trip somewhere.

    I made several trips there with the high school band, but going there for senior trip at night is different. It's not the destination that makes me sad, it's that I wasn't able to take part in something that has become part of being a senior.

    my sister's class went to france on their senior trip.
    my class went to nyc...
    when we arrived there, a friend and i immediately cabbed it to queens, to see my grandparents. (i didn't have enough money for the cab and so, my grandparents gladly paid).
    when we got back, i was in a boatload of trouble; all sorts of people looking for us.
    i almost jeopardized the trip for everyone.

    i'm sorry you didn't get to go on your trip, tazzi.
    but i'm glad your dd did. :icon_hug:

    Tazzi,

    You have been able to provide your children with an important experience that your family did not have the means to provide for you. That's the definition of the American dream. I understand your personal sadness, but you should be very proud of yourself, as well!
