It's that time of year to head out on my favourite fieldtrip - to the Pumpkin Patch.
We are lucky to have a wonderful farm that provides a fun experience for families to pick their pumpkins.
It was a beautiful sunny fall day.
Shannon our hostess gave a brief talk on the variety of pumpkins they grow on their farm. The families had time to explore in the barn which had displays of the pumpkin varieties plus a wonderfully scary Hallowe'en display including a moving witch stirring her cauldron.After heading out to the field to pick their pumpkins, Shannon provided apples to feed the goats.
And a cup of feed each for the chickens.
The eggs we found were still warm.
After cleaning their hands we had a snack and story. I love telling the story "The Little Old Lady that Wasn't Afraid of Anything". It's full of sounds and actions that encourages participation.
