it's safe to say that i know my way around every pumpkin patch in north mississippi. i'm still baffled at how there can be so many. i'm thinking i could set one up in my backyard and make a little money. i definitely think i'm qualified, and it would save all these schools some driving time! plus, a putt putt course in my backyard would absolutely be awesome. however, i will be forgoing the petting zoo. i see no need for goats.
last week, reed pretended like he was a kindergartener and went with wes' class on their trip to the pumpkin patch.
earlier this week, reed pretended to be a first grader and went on william's field trip with him to the pumpkin patch. a different one. i mean, there's about 30 to choose from. this was actually my first trip to this one in fulton, and i have to give them props. they had cool "toys," but they still had the goats. and a donkey. somebody tell me...why do petting zoos seem like good ideas?
so now we have a few more pumpkins to add to our crotons on the porch, and reed is back to being a 3 year old. and i'm done with petting chickens and goats until next october. win-win!
