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!!
