Pumpkin Patch

Yesterday, Zachary and I went to the pumpkin patch with Timothy and his class.  Being a small, private school, they do not take busses on field trips.  Instead, they depend on parents to travel with them to the destination.  So I loaded Timothy, Zachary, and three of Timothy’s classmates into the Trailblazer and we headed to the pumpkin patch in a town just over thirty minutes away.

Now this was like most pumpkin patches that I’ve been to before.  There was a short lesson about the different kinds of pumpkins and the kids got to pick out a pumpkin to bring home with them.  There was something that I hadn’t seen before though.  Beyond the pumpkins, they had a pen filled with goats, donkeys, and horses.  They put on a little demonstration with their farm dogs herding the goats.  First with the old dog who very calmly rounding the goats up and then young 4 month old dog who ran and pushed the goats around.  The kids weren’t terribly interested in this, but we “grown-ups” thought it was neat.  After the show, the kids got to feed the animals.  That was fun!
