My grandson, Verne, turned 5 on Tuesday!
On Monday my daughter, grandchildren and I went to an indigenous people’s day event in a state park.
Verne was very interested and asked a lot of questions.
Natalie Faith found herself a big yellow oak leaf and it kept her happy the entire time we hiked through the wood.
Yesterday was pumpkin-day at the school where I work.
In years past the older children have always gone for a field trip to a pumpkin patch. Last year, during the COVID pandemic, all field trips were cancelled so the school created a pumpkin patch by placing over 200 pumpkins on one of the fields on campus. Each class got to go out at a specific time and each child got to choose a pumpkin, have a glass of cider, and a fresh apple! It was so much fun that this year we continued the tradition.
The very best part of all of this is that the toddlers were never included in the field trips…thank goodness! But they are included in the school pumpkin patch!
So much fun!!
Love the photo of your grandchildren. So sweet!! do you guys call her Natalie Faith all the time or just Natalie? love the name :)ReplyDelete
YAY for Pumpkin day. Ours was Tuesday and we had a blast with our special little friends. Only 1 student refused to paint a pumpkin (he has some sensory issues regarding touch). I love that your school turned the lawn into a pumpkin patch. We did something similar for our special prekers.
i love jewelry made out of shells and sea glass.....what a gift!!
Wow, hard to believe Verne is 5 already! So handsome! And Natalie Faith is so cute.ReplyDelete
What a sweet gift that necklace was.
I love the idea of the pumpkin day at school!
Happy birthday to Verne! The indigenous people's day activities look fun!ReplyDelete
Hi, I'm visiting from Friendship Friday. Very lovely pictures you are sharing. Happy birthday to Verne. My granddaughter also had a birthday yesterday---she turned 2 weeks old! Yep, I am a brand-new grandma, and I am over the moon, as I know you understand. Little Natalie Faith is adorable. What a sweet picture of her. And what a gracious and generous gift from the lady at the booth.ReplyDelete

What a lovely way to include all the kids with the pumpkin picking and less stressful than going out on a field trip. Your grandkids are cute. Sounds like you had a good day out.ReplyDelete
Oh I love the idea of the school pumpkin patch. What a great way to have a 'field trip' and the littles included too.ReplyDelete
Your grandchildren are so adorable. What a blessing it is for you to be near them.
Have a good week!
These are precious pictures of the kids, and I love the one with just the pumpkinReplyDelete
showing. Sometimes a photo doesn't need words, and that one exudes happiness.
