Pumpkin Scales, Pig Races, and Pink Skies | Very 1st Field Trip!

14 10 2015

Despite a little one at home whose temperature was flirting with the 104-degree mark, I took a personal day from work to accompany my 3-year-old on his very first field trip. The trip was to our favorite farm, but I still wanted to be there to catch all the sweet moments! As a teacher, I won’t always be able to do this, but this milestone was really important to me and was so worth forking over one of only 2 precious personal days we get each year.

But first, a look-back: last year’s and this year’s trip to the farm:

The morning sky promised a perfect fall day on the farm:

Listening intently to his favorite preschool teacher, clutching the brown bag lunch he wouldn’t let me hold.

The entire class rode the carousel twice… it was a long ride… and fast…

Finally getting to eat his lunch. We capped off the day with a zillion trips down the 40-foot underground slide, everyone’s favorite attraction. 🙂

And just like last year, he slept in the car all the way back.
