First field trip!

I had the privilege of being able to accompany Elliott on his first field trip ever!  We were given the option and he said he wanted me to come along.  Sweet boy.  The trip was back in October to Mainstay Farms.  It was a lot of fun to have the place practically to ourselves.  Benjamin came along, too, but kept to himself in the Ergo 😉

We visited this pumpkin patch last year for the first time and had a blast.  Being that it was a field trip, the owners added in a few more educational opportunities for the kids.  They watched a movie about growing pumpkins and we listened to them talk about how the farm got its start and growing Christmas trees.

It was neat to get to see Elliott interacting with his friends and put faces to all of the names that I hear.  And, it was nice to get a better feel for how his teacher interacts with the kids as well. Oh if I could only be a fly on the wall at his school!  I also very much enjoyed getting to talk to some of the other moms.  They are a sweet group of ladies and I look forward to getting to know them over the coming years.  I cannot say enough how happy we are with making the decision to send Elliott to this school!   It is such a perfect fit for us.














  1. Looks like he is liking school 🙂 If that school were closer to us, we may have looked in to it, it sounds pretty interesting. I am already stressing about what we are going to do!
