Lily's visit to the pumpkin patch!

On October 14th, Lily's preschool 4 class went on their first field trip to the pumpkin patch. Rich and I went along with them on the bus. There has already been several hard frosts, so most of the pumpkins were no longer in the fields, but they saved some (covered with plastic until we arrived) for us to see. We had a snack and Miss Kana (the other preschool 4 teacher) read a pumpkin story to everyone. Most children had their parents along and bought a small pumpkin (because they aren't like what you would envision from the U.S....mostly very small...not so orange and very very expensive). However, we loved to have the opportunity to show Lily a pumpkin patch. She had a really good time! It was almost as much fun sharing with the adults from other European countries the idea of a pumpkin patch! I wish I could transport them to the one in Mekinock, ND...with the hay ride and the pumpkin cookies and pumpkins the size of a smart car! :o)

Oh how cute they all look on their pumpkin adventure! I just love the yellow construction worker vests! Looks like you've been very busy this Thursday. I am at work now, but I'll catch up on the other posts this weekend!
