Woodjie at the Pumpkin Patch








I took Elf and Emperor to the pumpkin patch as well, but we haven't had any Woodjie pictures in a while. Woodjie was a pretty good little kid, considering he got very overwhelmed by all the sights and sounds at the farm. He was frightened of the animals. He was positively terrified of the tractor ride. But he just loved the kiddie playground. Most of the rides are fun, inventive things like rocking lambs made of wood, animal swings made from tires, a barrel and hula-hoop rodeo game, and a real bitty Fort Liberty stockade. Yes, I kept Woodjie on the monkey leash but mostly I try to hold his hand when we go places.

  3. What gorgeous photos! I was thinking of all of my homeschool friends today when I actually saw a mother being accosted at the supermarket because she had her school age child with her. The truancy "police" had been called. And they were so mean to her.

    We have a monkey leash. We love it!

  4. Thanks, Bronwyn! I think he's kinda cute, too. :]

    Rose, I'm sure you can appreciate how hard some of those were to take LOL. Thanks for the compliment!

    Bonnie, I don't even know what to say about that. Homeschooling is VERY common here. In fact, we ran into a 14-year-old boy who introduced himself to Elf and Emperor and asked them about homeschooling, etc. Turns out HE is in his first year of homeschooling and loves it. Actually, it only seems old people are not clued in to the fact that there are a good plenty of homeschoolers out there. They are old-fashioned and reason children ought to be in school...

    I prayed for that poor woman and her whole family. How often we have two doctor appointments in a day, and just don't go back to school in the in-between time. There isn't enough time to get the child back to school, unpacked and concentrating. Often I schedule my appointments all for the same day so that we only miss one day instead of several half-days for my ps kids. In between the appointments I have NEVER been asked about school. And my oldest is 16. They just ask the littler ones... hmm...

    I guess once the kids aren't tiny anymore, who cares about 'em? But then, they get left alone. Mixed bag.

  5. He is a doll, and he sure has grown! I'm so glad that he was able to enjoy some of your time there in spite of having a couple of scary things to deal with.

  8. Love the pics. He is so cute. I had a leash for the littles too when we would go somewhere big like that because it is just too easy to get distracted and something happen especially when you have one younger than that too.

  13. You've got such beautiful children, Mrs. C!!!

    (My kids screamed their heads off and totally embarrassed me at the petting zoo at the fair. You should have heard me, "For crying out loud, calm down! A lamb has never eaten a little boy!")
