Our Trip to Uncle Bob's Pumpkin Patch

We enjoyed a beautiful fall day at Uncle Bob's Pumpkin Patch. The students had an opportunity to go on a hayride, take a nature walk, pet farm animals, watch chicks hatch and much more. It was an action packed day!

The Nature Walk

Taking a little break on the Nature Trail. The students learned that trees have names just like they do!

The Petting Zoo

The students really enjoyed interacting with the animals in the petting zoo. For many, (animals and students) it was a little scary at first, but they all warmed up to each other and both groups enjoyed the experience.
