Anna June's trip to the Great Pumpkin Patch went off without a hitch yesterday. She loved riding the bus, as predicted. I got to drive 3 other chaperones and we had great conversation. But getting there wasn't the only fun we had. Here are a few highlights:
1. Lunch. This was what AJ looked forward to the most. Not only did she get to pack a lunch, with a juice pouch! - but we also just got a new insulated lunchbox (from UAB when I got my flu shot) and she was excited to use it. Also, we packed both of our lunches in the same lunchbox, at her request. So exciting!
2. We got to spend the whole day together. She was so happy about this, she quickly forgave me when I accidentally forgot that her Spanish lesson lasts only 45 minutes instead of an hour. #momfail
3. Pony ride, selecting a pumpkin, seeing animals and inflatables. Oh, my!
I really was glad it worked out for me to go, even though there were plenty of other adults along. She was very proud and happy I was there, as I tied shoes and zipped jackets and escorted kids to the potty. There should be more pictures, containing actual pumpkins, from my "real" camera soon.
Quite a Week
