This might not LOOK like the pumpkin patch you were expecting....BUT....
Sally's class decided this morning that rain or no rain, they were going to the pumpkin patch! So they pulled out one of our pumpkin tablecloths, spread it on the floor, requested popcorn and apple juice for snack, cranked up the music, and...instant field trip!!!
(Ella enjoying her popcorn snack!)
Clayton said, "This is better than the real pumpkin patch!" And warmer...and drier!!
(Clayton and Mugsie Monkey...enjoying a day at the pumpkin patch!)
We promised them they wouldn't have to "learn" anything today...so they turned off their brains and got ready for fun!! The parachute will be coming out shortly...and I have a feeling some pumpkin races will be taking place in the hallway today!

The other classrooms have followed suit having popcorn parties and taking part in fun projects. We're so lucky to have teachers who can turn it on and fly by the seat of their pants in a pinch!!
So, yeah...we don't need no stinkin' pumpkin patch!!!
UPDATE...the pumpkin races have officially started...I KNEW IT!!
