Ancient Greece I Day 11 / The Pumpkin Patch

We made our annual trip to the pumpkin patch with our homeschool support group. This wonderful group of families has been together for seven years now and it has been wonderful to watch these children grow and also to grow in friendship with their mamas.

The funny thing about a field trip like this is that it is no longer about the field trip itself; it's about the ritual of the trip. The children already know all about bees, they've rolled countless beeswax candles, and they are much taller than the hay maze. The children are much bigger and the pumpkins seem smaller. But still we go.

Most of the kids.  This is the "outtake", but I really like it.
