October Field Trip

For October, we went to Nottawa Fruit Farm just north of Sturgis. We had a good sized group and even though it was chilly, we all had a great time!

Trying to stay warm on our covered wagon ride. We made stops at a sorghum maze and to pick a pumpkin to take home.

They all got to dig for dino eggs which was fun and then on to the musical characters. The children walked in a circle while the music played and when it stopped, they had to get behind one of the characters by using their own heads to complete the character. Josiah was pinocchio for this one (thanks Miss Casie for holding me up!). Onto some tunnel fun.

The straw tunnel was dark but fun. We had to use a flash light and Josiah wasn't brave enough to try this one on his own, so the mom went along. All the boys liked this part of the farm and we could hardly get them to come out.

And a little deer and goat feeding were wet and yucky, but everyone enjoyed feeding them. Then it was time to feed ourselves (after a good hand washing), so we all got our packed lunches and finished out our day. We also did a little shopping in their farm market, buying some apples and cookies to take home. Yum!!!
