Burt's Farm Field Trip

Last week, our homeschool group went on a field trip to a pumpkin farm. It was an absolutely gorgeous fall day in North Georgia! The Cospers rode with us and along with several other cars we made our way up to Burt's Farm in Dawsonville. Johnny Pumpkinseed taught us about how the pumpkins are grown and the different varieties. Then we went on a hayride where "Autumn" and "Gourdy" told us some more about the farm and that God makes things grow. At the end of the hayride we got to pick out "sugar pumpkins" to take home with us. (I cooked mine and made yummy pumpkin bread with it!)

After the tour of Burt's, we drove over to Amicalola Falls and ate a picnic lunch at the playground. Then everyone loaded up and drove to the steps to walk to the top of the falls. One of the moms had hurt her back the day before, though, so she and I stayed behind and kept the three three-year olds.

All in all, a beautiful day to be outside, and a great field trip!
