Traveling with Kids

I suppose they got to where they were going. Last Friday, I saw about forty kids and five teachers get off a plane in the Atlanta airport. They all wore brightly colored T-shirts. "Stay with your groups. Stay in this terminal area and don't go out past baggage claim," the older of the two male teachers said loudly. Concourse D, where we were, is big enough as it is to lose a few kids if they failed to check in as they were instructed. Baggage claim is about a mile from gate D2. In between there are several concourses the look very similar. I was just glad that I was getting on the plane they had left and not responsible for getting them all on another plane three hours later.
