What a blessing it was to be able to chaperone Nola's field trip...for a couple reasons. First, my girl was recovering from a weeklong fever and I really didn't think she would have the strength to participate. Second, I was "just" a parent. Usually, I am the teacher methodically counting 25 heads to make sure no one slipped away. This time I was able to focus all of my energy on one kiddo...the one that made me a mama. Rosie-Roo!
The weather was perfect...slightly crisp and oh, so sunny! I met my girl as she unloaded the bus with her classmates at the pumpkin patch.
A short hayride later, we were in the field. Nola was thinking hard about this little gem but eventually decided that he was a bit too small for the face she was hoping to get dad to carve.
She settled on something a tad bigger.
With pumpkin picking behind us, it was time for farm chores! Nola cleaned a stall, collected eggs and loaded the hayloft! She was a star, I tell you! Just look at her work!
Thanks for a great day, my love!
You were an awesome date!
