The kids were talking non-stop about pumpkins. They drew pictures of pumpkins. They talked about how to grow a one-ton pumpkin and how they wanted to grow one next year.
I pulled Farmer Boy by Laura Ingalls Wilder off the shelf and read to them about when Almanzo grew a giant pumpkin and won the contest. They even listened as they colored their pictures!
|Fynn and Rico guesstimated how much each pumpkin weighed, then weighed as many as possible on the real scale.|
|Who's that scarecrow out there?|
|Or that one?|
We had so much fun! When we got home, we made our own pumpkin patch in the backyard.
