Nicolas and his school took a field trip to a pumpkin farm, and several mommies followed in their SUV’s and minivans.  We drove for about 20 minutes, while are kids were riding for the first time in a yellow school bus.  Believe it or not, I was so excited I could barely sit still.  Nicolas had always wanted to ride on a school bus, and it was so much fun watching how he nervously got on the bus.  I could not wait to ask him “How was the ride?”, but his excitement was written all over his face. 

They dressed the kids in these tshirts to avoid any of them getting away.  Then they took them into a room and showed them the plants, and several different stages of growth of the pumpkin plant, eggplant, tomatoes, and bell peppers.  Then the sat and listened to a nice story, and then we walked through the fields.  The kids had a really good time, and we were all exhausted after 2 1/2 hours of walking.
