Friday was Joahnnes’ first field trip to a local farm and I volunteered to help chaperone, gladly I might add. The prospect of ditching work for a day of fun was very appealing. Add to this the fact that the last time I was on a field trip was over 14 years ago, and I was positive to be in for a super fun day. And it did not disappoint.
The day was rainy and foggy but this didn’t get in our way. We threw on our rubber boots and rain coats and away we went. Johannes absolutely LOVED the school bus ride out to the farm. When we got there we picked (and ate) raspberries, picked corn, gourds and pumpkin. We played on the hay stacks and checked out the farm animals. We were paired off the whole time, on adult and two kids. It was exhausting but fun. Oh my the squeals and giggles. But in the end all were exhausted. So so exhausted, but it was worth it.
