This week we focused on the moon/stars, harvesting, and the upcoming "Harvest" moon at the end of the month. I snapped a few quick pictures while they were working on making stars for our moon and star mobile.
Yesterday we went to the pumpkin patch and "harvested" some pumpkins. They had a great corn maze, pumpkin ice cream, and a HUGE variety of pumpkins...and of course I forgot my camera. Big bummer because the kids were precious, as always. But here's a few shots of our collection!
The snake gourds on the steps and "once upon a blue moon" pumpkin on the bottom step are the fruits of our pumpkin patch. We had three pumpkins start to grow, but two didn't make it. This is our only one, but it's a beauty. The snake gourds were Jackson's seed pick and I find them...interesting. I'm excited to expand next year and try more varieties of pumpkins and different types of gourds.
The ones from the patch we visited yesterday.
All ready for fall. And yes, there are differing politcal views expressed in our household.
