On Thursday, October 9, 2014, the Centennial Kindergarten class spent the morning searching for their “great pumpkin” at Venetucci Farm. These 5 and 6-year-olds enjoyed several hours on the farm, and David was fortunate to have been invited to share in this exciting experience.
David’s duties not only included chaperoning these youngsters, but he also happily volunteered to assist in the selection of the perfect pumpkin. Every child had to ensure that their pumpkin was manageable, meaning that it had to get back to school and then safely home at the end of the day in their very capable hands. And, beyond size restrictions, each child had a very distinct idea about their pumpkin’s look and feel. “The selection process was in-depth, but I think we successfully helped every student find their pumpkin match,” David said.
The group also got to view the animals on the farm, to include chickens, geese, horses, goats, and one very sizeable hog. And, although the weather didn’t hold quite long enough to have their outdoor picnic at a neighboring park, the day was a success and each child was full of newfound enthusiasm for farm life and memories to share with their families about their field trip fun.
“I was delighted to share the morning with these fantastic Kindergarteners,” David shared. “What a great way to start the fall season.”
