First Field Trip

Samantha’s class went on a field trip to the Grand Ole Pumpkin Patch this year.  We didn’t go as a family this year because of that.  However, Samantha probably got to do more with her class than she does get to do with us.  (What can we say?  We’re cheap.)

Here she is in the petting zoo, feeding the goats.



And she came away with Daddy’s “bumpy pumpkin.”



I think it turned out to be a great day!


Sam met her Kindergarten teacher today.  She has been really nervous about going to Kindergarten, but after today, she is super excited.  So excited that she decided to read Green Eggs and Ham to me tonight.  She’s been reading for a while, but she doesn’t ever like to read books before bed.  I guess that’s because we have always read to her, and she doesn’t want to flip it around.  I don’t know.

She did so well.  She only came to a few words that she didn’t already know.  Most she sounded out, even though she doesn’t like to do that.  I’m so proud of her!

I remember last fall when we went to Gatlinburg, we ate at a place called Dick’s.  It was pretty crude.  I remember telling Brian that we probably couldn’t come again because the walls were filled with things that I’m glad my girls couldn’t understand.  Now that Sam can read, I guess we have to be even more careful about where we go and what we expose her to.
