Jayden's Field Trip

Home Up Page 2


    Jayden's kindergarten class went on their first ever field trip on Friday, October 19th. Although the weather wasn't great, the kids had a blast anyway. A slight drizzle wasn't enough to dampen their spirits, even if it did tend to chill their fingertips just a bit! Jayden was teamed up with another girl, Molly, and both Tara & I tagged along as chaperones. We started out the morning with a "straw ride" (apparently the hay crop wasn't good this year, driving up the prices) out to the pumpkin patch. We each got to pick out a pumpkin, all of which were on the smaller side. I debated picking out the tiniest pumpkin I could find, but I ended up settling on a decent looking pumpkin - which was a large one based on our choices - instead. After all four of us had our preferred pumpkin, we wandered through the corn trail back to the play area. Up next on the agenda was a meeting with Farmer Mitchell, who made the kids popcorn in a kettle (and some for the chaperones, too). Then it was time for lunch, which each kid brought with them. After the kids finished eating they were free to go play and check out the animals. Jayden had a lot of fun in the various play areas, and she thought the donkey was interesting and the baby chickens were cute!

The donkey, JR. He wasn't as excited to see us this time as he was last time...

A bunch of chickens in their pen, with fresh eggs behind them.

Jay ran to the opposite end of the row of bales, and almost slid off to the ground as she came to a stop!
