Alex's first field trip

Lucky Alex did already get to go on a field trip last year, but it was much more exciting to be going on his own field trip (not Nick's) and riding the bus. His field trip was scheduled for October 14th and it turned out to be a beautiful day. It felt pretty warm but I think it was around 75 degrees. He rode the bus with Mrs. Brown and the Plattin Primary Kindergarten to the Millstadt Eckerts Fun Farm. Alex was determined to go pick apples, so we rode the wagon (by ourselves) and went out to pick apples. This was after Mrs. Brown had released him to go home with me. Alex is a hard worker and picked really good apples. He knew they were called Fuji- the only apples left for the season- and told everyone. They were really good apples. Alex found Mrs. Brown before she got on the bus to go back to school and gave her an apple. We got to watch the pumpkin cannon shoot pumpkins across the field. And Alex raised his hand and got picked to go up and pick out the pumpkin for the farmer to load in the cannon.
Here he is getting interviewed by Candy Apple or something like that.

The kids had a lot of fun walking through the pumpkin patch and picking out their own pumpkin. They could pick any pumpkin as long as they could carry it all by themselves.
Alex really loved being with all his friends from school and riding the wagon to the pumpkin patch. All day long kids would be yelling 'Alex' and he would take off running to go play with someone else. I had a hard time keeping up.

The Corn Maze was fun until I decided to wait at the front and I waited and waited and waited... He eventually came out!

Alex really likes two little girls in his class- one named Ava and one named Avery. They are both blondes and sort-of look alike. I think this one is Avery.

If you look closely, you can see the arch in the background. We were right across the river.
