Washington Farms with the Kindergarten

Today Jessica's kindergarten class went to Washington Farms in Watkinsville to go on a hayride, pick out a pumpkin, and learn about farming. Here's Jessica, along with a couple of her classmates, waiting for it all to get started:

Jessica brought her binoculars with her:

To the Pumpkin Patch with Elyse

On Friday, Elyse's class at Bethesda United Methodist Preschool went to the Pumpkin Patch to hear a couple of pumpkin stories and pick out a pumpkin. Here's Elyse with the inflatable giant pumpkin and black cat:

She did eventually settle for rolling it:

One of Elyse's classmates had brought along her six-month-old sister, who just fascinated Elyse:

They developed quite a rapport:

This is Elyse with the older sister of her baby-pumpkin friend:

Bunches of pumpkins:

Bunches of preschool visitors (and their teachers):
