Yesterday, Sophie's preschool class took a field trip to the pumpkin patch. Families were also invited to attend and join their preschooler for a fun day down on the farm.
Of course, Hudson and Addy-Kate could not have been more excited to spend the day with Sophie and her classmates. And Sophie was quite the "host" as she took it upon herself to formally introduce each of us to all of her new friends.
First up for the day was a bumpy hayride around the entire farm. As we rode, the kids had fun "eye spying" several different animals hidden along the way.
After the hayride, we headed over to the corn maze. The kids had a blast running through the tall corn, stopping only to get their map stamped at each station.
Next... it was time to hit the patch! S, H, and AK each had their hearts set on finding that perfect pumpkin;) They moseyed back and forth along the rows, perusing the patch for their pumpkin. After looking it all over for a while, they finally settled on their favorites.
With bright orange pumpkins in hand, we headed over to the picnic area to enjoy lunch AND fresh apple slushies!
After our picnic was cleaned up, we played a little while longer soaking up every bit of sunshine we could. I really enjoyed sitting back for a moment and watching Sophie play. She absolutely LOVES each of her class mates and it's such a blessing to see her flourish in this new setting. She adores her teachers too and I feel so blessed to have them apart of her life as well. She has already learned so much in just the short time she has been in school, and I can't wait to see how much more she will grow as the year continues.
