A beautiful day at the pumpkin farm....

Today was such a great day!
I think my sweet little autistic student summed it up pretty well when he leaned over to me at lunch and whispered..."Today was the BEST fun I EVER had!" :)

We, the 1st and 2nd grade class, have been counting down the days till October 28....
For the last week I have had to stop fights about how many exact days there were till today....
For today we went on our first field trip of the year!!
To - G & M Farms
We were SO excited!!!
And it was everything we hoped it would be...and more....
Here is our day in pictures!!!

"Mrs. Balatbat!!!! We are HERE!!! "
Right away, we went on our hayride!!! Let me tell you CA definitely has more modern hayride equipment than IN.....haha...but that's only because they don't use it for actual farms!! :)
Ready to have a great day!!!

The hayride took us the the "pumpkin classroom" where got our very own "pumpkin lecture."
They loved it!!
He was having a blast!!
(btw...this is my autistic boy...one of these days I will dedicate a post to him! He is so special to me! His name is Bosa...)
the "pumpkin teacher" :)
Even the kindergarten were very impressed!
My boys!
Next on the agenda was the hay bale maze! It was lots of fun!!! They went crazy!


My girls!!!
After that craziness we found some more craziness over at the "corn" box....just like a sandbox but instead it was filled with corn! What a blast!
Bosa was having the time of his life!
He definitely had this coming to him! He stared the corn dumping fight!! I love this picture!
the girls were doing more girly things...like making "corn" snowmen..:)
until...they started burying each other in corn....
they eventually convinced me to join them...
it was so fun!
until...they started burying me...
all done!!
Then they all wanted a turn!

Next, we looked at the animal part of the farm...

haha..only Bosa!
Miss Kelso with the 3rd and 4th grade!
All of us with Bosa being the center of attention like normal....
Silly faces!
the more mature 3rd and 4th graders...

Our animals...
Bosa, the goat....
I'm so glad Michelle and I get to share these memories together!!
In the hay tunnel

I love him!
Eunice and her pumpkin!
Gabi and I picking our pumpkins!
All done :(
Going home....
Bye Pumpkin Farm....we had so much fun today!!!

We made so many memories today! I can't wait till our next field trip!
Let me just say...for those hours today I, for the first time this year, actually felt like it was Fall....all of you back home...don't take for granted your beautiful fall season...you don't realize how great it is until you don't have it anymore....

What neat pictures! I'm glad you're doing so well. Is that the ocean I see in the last picture? I do love our fall season here in Indiana, but I don't think I would get bored seeing the ocean all the time either. Take care, Liz, and happy birthday! You're getting sooo old! Hahahaha...
