Ruby’s class took a field trip to a pumpkin patch this week and John got to go with her. The pumpkin season is the worst in 20 years around here, we’ve heard, due to our ridiculously short summer. Ruby was lucky there were any pumpkins at all! She loved it all: the hayride, climbing on hay bales, a hay bale maze, choosing a pumpkin from the field, having snack outside, petting the goats….
Ginger is 5 months old now (6 months next week!) and has joined us at the table in her high chair now. As John says, “All of a sudden, I feel like a grown up with two kids at the table.” So weird. As soon as I give in and admit Ginger is as old as she is, she’ll be eating her first foods.
