All was well & wonderful until the Charlie Brown show ended and I had the wonderful idea of watching Coraline because someone on my facebook posted about how great it was and Narls is like two years older than our first attempt at watching it and it should be ok now.
We made it about 25 minutes farther than we did two years ago and the night ended in tears from Narls (I told you I didn't want to watch this movie ever again in my life!) and tears from Emerson (I want to finish it! This is the bestest movie eva!) and a fight between Clay and myself because what did I expect would happen anyway and I shoulda just listened to him in the first place.
But hey, at least our pumpkins look good.

The kindergarteners took their first field trip, to an orchard/pumpkin patch.
I've been here before, a few years back, with Narls when he was in kindergarten. I was just as excited and nervous and ready to celebrate fall with my girl and her friends today as I was with Narls then.
We had a little prep sesh prior to the trip where the kiddos made their shirts and crafted some pretty spectacular pumpkins.
The field trip itself went perfectly. We took a hayride through the farm to a pumpkin patch where we picked out our own pumpkins. The kids got to tour the farm and pet a horse and learn how cider is made. We ended the trip with a picnic style lunch on hay bales, complete with donuts and cider.
I cannot say enough how thankful I am to have a job that affords me the flexibility to be with my children for their school events. I love having a career, but my kids are my whole entire world.
And now the loot! Pumpkins, donuts, cider, and caramel apples.
Seriously, this is why fall is everyone's favorite season.
