What is more exciting to a 12-year-old than getting to see the Pacific Symphony Orchestra perform with Mickey Mouse as the conductor? A lot. But listening to music in comfy chairs beats school work any day. Well, that's how my sixth-grade class felt about our annual field trips to the Orange County Performing Arts Center. It was a day to dress up in "fancy clothes" and wear our dresses, slacks and button-down shirts. We girls even brought purses and finally had a reason to wear our shoes with the slight heel -- the ones we convinced our moms we were old enough to have.

Sitting under the sun in an Irvine agricultural field, the Andersen Elementary School fourth-graders were tired, achy, dirty and sweaty from farming ... and it had only been 90 minutes. “It must be awful doing this every day for 11 hours,” said Lisa Hamilton, 10, as she struggled to peel the quickly drying mud from her sneakers. “I can’t imagine doing this all day.” That may be the exact kind of reaction teachers were hoping for Tuesday. Lisa, by far one of most energetic at this point in the day when so many others were now dragging their feet, said she had a new understanding of what César Chavez was fighting for all those years ago when he created the United Farm Workers of America.
