The Corn Was A High as an Elephants Eye

Dad was home because of the holiday so what did we do? We went on another field trip. We drove down to one of the best pumpkin patches in the area. We watched a short video about the life of a pumpkin. And then we took a hay ride around the farm. This was the highlight for me. I loved seeing the fields of sunflowers and marigolds that they have planted there along with a lot of pumpkins. And the ride weaved through a corn field as well. The kids loved this because the stalks of corn were so tall that it was like riding through thick green walls. Henry loved being able to lean over the side just a bit and touch the corn stalks as we drove by. We picked out a nice big pumpkin to take home too.

We had a lot of fun!
We did actually do some school today too. We showed Dad what a normal school day (at least morning) for us is like.
