Last week we went to the farm with her preschool class. After days of very warm temperatures were finally we had a more typical fall like day cooler in temperature and with no rain. We began our outing with a hayride to the pumpkin patch. The children were free to explore the field in search of a pumpkin. We walked in the patch touching several pumpkins. I always wonder what draws children to their choice. Chance? Color? Shape? Size? She found her pumpkin at the very end of our time there. There for a moment as the class was leaving I thought I might have hastily to choose one for her.
