Field Trip!

Lacy went on her first field trip with her kindergarten class on Friday. I was able to volunteer and attend the field trip with Lacy. I'm really happy that I was able to go- I met some of Lacy's friends, including friends from the other kindergarten class whom she plays with at recess. I was also able to spend a fun morning with her. I won't be able to volunteer in her kindergarten class much after January, so I'm taking advantage of the time I have now!

With the giant 638 pound pumpkin on display in front of the cider mill (where the pumpkin patch was located)

A taste of delicious fresh cider- their specialty! They also got apple cider donuts. The best part of it was, I got cider and donuts, too! Yippee!


The pumpkin patch

Lacy and her buddy with their pumpkins!

Feeding the goats was a highlight of the trip! Lacy's buddy's bag got eaten whole by a greedy goat who took it right out of her hands!

This goat pulls the bucket of food up the pulley with her mouth! Cleaver!

They have a wooden maze set up in the back. The kids got a kick out of running through it and finding their way out!


It was a really fun trip and I'm glad I was able to go, though I was soooo tired at the end of the day! I actually had to have a few hours of kid-free time this afternoon to recover and take a nap! I was exhausted! I'm volunteering for the class again this week as the parent helper. I'm very excited to observe a day at school to see what they do! I'm also going to help out at their harvest festival later this month, assuming I can find a babysitter. I'll have helped out in Lacy's class three weeks in a row this month!
