Field Trips

Last week was busy. On Wednesday my six year old's kindergarten class went to The Fruit and Berry (and Pumpkin) Patch where we got a hayless hayride to the pumpkin field to pick our own pumpkins. Then we went through their corn maze. Oh yeah, actually, before we picked our pumpkins we stopped to feed some goats and a dog that thinks it's a goat because it was 'raised' by them. It poured the rain the whole time, and we got soaked. And I mean totally drenched and dripping wet. I didn't take an umbrella because I knew it would be more trouble than it was worth. It got a little chilly, but other than that we didn't mind it. The rain did stop in time for our picnic lunch. After that we each got to pick an apple and got a sample of the best apple cider I've ever tasted.

On Friday my daughter's second grade class went to a play based on the Junie B. Jones books. It was fun, and the kids were all so well-behaved. After the play we had a picnic lunch at a park. The weather was very pretty and sunny, but cold.

This week is Fall Break so the kids are home all week. (Oh joy.) I'm tempted to pack them all up and hit the road for our own little field trip. But they have their big Halloween party planned for this coming Saturday and probably need to be here to get everything ready for it. The main attraction of the party is the Haunted Woods where they will have lots of spooky, cool, and even scary things set up along a trail. It's kind of a big production for them. They do a really good job with it too. I think we should put a sign up by the road and charge people admission for it. ;-)

We've got a local farm that does a haunted hayride every year. Lots of good fun to be had.

rainypete and sierrabella, thanks for the comments. Sorry I've been scarce lately. It's been kind of crazy around here. After this week maybe things will settle down.
