Another fun field trip was planned for Andrew to Legare Farms for school. Yes, I jumped at the chance to go! We had a blast. We went through a corn maze and got lost! That's what happens when you let the four 2nd graders in my group take turns deciding which way to go! It was so fun, hearing them giggle and laughing. Nothing makes me smile more than kids laughing. While we were in the maze, some of the kids in the group said they heard a cow and we did see some cow patties - Now, being the calm chaperone, I said "Guys, there are no cows in the corn maze - they must just be allowed to roam the grounds at night when no one is here". Much to my surprise when we finally made it out of the maze, we had heard that one of the cows escaped and was bucking and going crazy through the maze! Praise God, no one was hurt and the farm owners were able to capture the cow and lock him up! How awesome to be in a christian school where everyone prayed and thanked God for His protection! Next we headed off to the hayride and were able to feed the "calmer" cows again - Andrew kept hoping he would get slimed on from the large tongues of the cows and sure enough he did! I cannot even begin to tell you how much Purell we used that day. After the hayride, we headed off to feed the goats and see the horse and animals in the little petting zoo they have. After a great lunch and a fun time of playing in the play area (and many of the kids saying "Mrs Bernetich, Can you push us again on the tire swing?) we headed home. One of the greatest blessings of the day was for me to be able to carpool with some of the other moms and get to know them better. It was such a great time to be there with my son and get to know these ladies more! These are the times I will treasure most in my life - the times I spent with my family!
