A couple days after their big day of firsts, the kids had their school field trip to the pumpkin patch. This was a completely different experience than the pumpkin/tractor farm. Lil Sister and I drove via car but T was able to ride with his class in the bus. Still, though, the whole day, Lil Sister was a kindergartener just like her brother and hung out with his class.
I did get a request from Lil Sis for a new shirt just for her big day with the big kids - a pumpkin/jack-o-lantern. Hence, the photo at the beginning. Next, a photo of T with his girlfriend. Yes, he has a girlfriend. When I asked what they do as boyfriend/girlfriend his reply was, "We sit together during story time and play during recess." When I asked what he liked about her he said, "She's nice, sweet, and I like her short hair." By the way, her mom was also on the field trip. When she introduced herself I told her how happy I was to meet her as our kids were getting very tight. She concurred and said her daughter is always telling tales of her and T's adventures on the playground. Apparently, they have a fighting crime club of super heroes. They totally hold hands, too - it's quite sweet and charming. (Mind you, T still holds his sister's hand, too - so don't worry we're still good.) Oh, and the kids are wearing college attire for red ribbon spirit week - it was wear your university attire.
There is also a photo of the kids and teacher listening to a presentation on pumpkin seeds. I have a great group photo but I did not want to get too detailed on the blog. Mrs. T, the teacher, is in the blue sweatshirt on the far left in the 4th photo.
We had a great time on the hay ride (which was Lil Sis's favorite part and T's least favorite part), trek through the corn maze, visit to the petting zoo (Lil Sis was SO excited to meet a real life miniature horse), picking pumpkins (T's favorite part), having pumpkin bread and milk (Mrs. T packed their milk all the way in a cooler from the school), and climbing on the hay bales that had a giant tube slide. I did not take too many photos as I did have to help in the herding of little kids - it was quite a hectic place. Still it was a fabulous and fun field trip.
