Pumpkin Patch

One of my favorite parts about homeschooling is the taking fieldtrips. I love that we can go during the week when there are fewer people and things are typically less expensive. My hubby took the day off and we headed to Kuipers Farm. There were a couple school groups for part of the day, but it was still pretty much ours for the taking!
