jovie went on a field trip with preschool yesterday! since all the parents had to transport the kids themselves, it was more a very organized playdate with her class. but it was fun. who knew they would organize “field trips” for 3 year olds!
we went to a local farm and she enjoyed herself. she surprised me a little, and surprised me not at all a little too.
we rode a hayride. (this one complete with hay) and the cows came really close to us- she didn’t mind that so much. watching the other animals through fences- neh, not interested. (except the bunnies):
we walked through a corn maze:
i (finally) convinced her to jump on the GIANT pillow-thing. then i convinced her to do it again so i was able to get some great pictures!**
she also rode a “cow train” and she didn’t need me to go with her! so i was able to take more great pictures:
she picked a tiny pumpkin (the tiniest one she could find, of course) & ran through some flowers. she saw animals up close, far away, & being silly:
and even ate ice cream….. before lunch!
i think her favorite part of the day was when we came back & had lunch with DADDDDDYYYYYYY!!!!!!!
it was a great day!
**her therapists (both PT & OT) would be amazed with the fact that she was able to jump with so much force, and knees bent. we work on this constantly! i’m still amazed when i see her jump. it’s still a relatively new skill. now i try to get her to jump forward- and this picture i think was a forward-moving jump. so WOOHOO for her!
