It’s pumpkin patch time

October 11, 2013

This year we opted to participate in the Georgia Cyber Academy instructional field trip instead of going to our normal stomping grounds at Burt’s Pumpkin Patch. Will I regret it and still go up north, we’ll see?? For now, I have a few “patch” pictures and great memories of our day.

A hayride took us around the farm and dropped us off at the patch.

The babies were content to hang out in the first patch so I was able to play and photograph them. However, that meant I wasn’t with the older kids in the second patch. Therefore, no pictures of them. Oh well I guess. Maybe, we will have to go up north after-all. At least that drive I could do by myself. We’ve been there numerous times for sure!

Thank you Aunt Sherry for Elizabeth’s new shirt. It is so dang cute!

Michael brought me his pumpkin, set it down to look for his mini pumpkin in the first field and promptly forgot this one in the patch. Oh well. At $0.89 a pound, I’m content to find him a carving pumpkin elsewhere.

“Look Mom-Mom. I dancing. Pin-cess.” Yes. She did indeed dance out of the patch like a princess!

Katie and her friend Joseph, were able to test their pumpkins for several things including its size, mass, buoyancy, and weight. The GCA teachers led this activity. I’m thrilled with their emphasis on this year’s outings having “teaching” moments to them. LOVE IT!

It was such a delightful surprise to realize long-ago friends had come on this field trip also. In fact, Ms. Maria was so sweet to offer to hold Elizabeth so I could fill out some papers only to realize that we actually knew each other. I’ve known her for 14 years. It’s been a number of years since I’ve gotten the chance to interact with her boys, but it’s fantastic when our paths happen to cross via schooling, church, or PSR. Today, the kids were instant friends. I do sincerely hope we can get them together more in the future!
