how 'bout a trip to a friend's farm and their pumpkin patch ... add a dozen or so other homeschool families ... and let 'em loose!
and then we just had to pick up some amazing fresh apples, squash, organic sausage and other goodies (including McCutcheon's Cream Sodas (!)) since we had to buy the one-pumpkin-each gig! Best of all? Dh got to come since he had today off .... gotta love Columbus Day!
[Just so you don't think we ALWAYS have 90-degree days in October, here's a link to last year's trip to the Farm when the weather was rainy, cold (40s) but still fun!]
I spend whatever free-time I have (I homeschool my three youngest) designing hand-knits, free-lance writing and keeping up with blogs and other online activities....all in order to stay out of trouble!
