Another October, another trip to the pumpkin patch. Thank GOD the kids get to go with their classes because taking six children to a muddy pumpkin patch and having to tell them a million times that one is too big or rotten isn’t fun. But being a chaperone with a teacher and her class is awesome.
[I seem to have the ability to create bad weather for any event, so of course it was wet and muddy]
Charlotte is pleased as punch when any routine gets interrupted, so this was just a perfect day for her.
One of the farmers, Joe, showed the kids around. And while Joe was very nice I think perhaps this should be his last time manning a group of 5 year olds around a site that has lots of hard rules to follow.
It’s hard to listen when there are puddles to jump in and worms to wrangle.
But finally the tours were over and it was pumpkin hunting time: the best time of all.
They tasted some farm-made cider, ate some apples and pears, and in 45 minutes the field trip was over. Perfect.
Before I left, I snuck into the store and got some apples and caramel – you can guess what I’m doing today.
