It is already October and today feels like summer! The temperature is near 80 degrees! The nice weather has allowed our students to spend plenty of time outdoors at the park and picking carrots and pumpkins in our pre school garden. We discovered that little animals like to eat our pumpkins. They chew big holes in them which means we can't use them for jack-o-lanterns, but we can easily see the many seeds inside the pumpkins. Twelve pumpkins were not eaten yet. They are being protected in the entryway of our church so we can use them for Halloween.
The carrots that we picked were very tasty! The ones we dug up were many different sizes and shapes. They were all orange though. The rest of the carrots will be dug up and eaten on Orange Day. That's the day after Halloween, in case you have never celebrated it before.
Our zinnias are as big and beautiful as ever. I guess the cool nights don't bother them. What a beautiful sight they are on a crisp fall day.
Right now we are learning about apples and our four year olds will be going to Aamodt's Apple Orchard for a visit. The next post will take you there!
