Harrison's class went on a field trip today. They are studying pumpkins this week so they went to Iowa Orchard. They have a very large apple orchard as well as a large pumpkin patch. It was freezing the day we went and it was also raining. Luckily there was just enough space inside that all the kids could sit down and listen to the woman talk. She was quite a woman. I am sure the kids didn't notice, but she kept telling the parents what to do. And it wasn't like she was mean or anything, she was just direct. "Hey. You. Pick up that bag of apples. See, children, those are red apples..." It was very amusing.
Harrison and his class had a good time and even got apple cider to drink before they went home. The horrible thing for all of us was that the ovens were right behind the woman that was talking and the employees kept bringing out fresh apple pies from the oven. Cruel, very cruel. (I would have bought one (crumb topping, Mmmmm) but they were $15.00 a pie!)
