Did you know NYC actually has a bonafide farm in its midst? I was shocked too!
We drove out to Queens Country Farm this past windy Saturday in hopes of visiting their pumpkin patch to find the perfect gourd for our Jack O'Lantern. We were kind of dismayed at the lack choice and didn't end up taking a pumpkin home. We did get to squeeze in a few barnyard animal sitings before someone declared it nap time by way of fussiness with a touch of crankiness.

I'm not a big fan of *drugstore chocolate* and prefer really good, really dark chocolate instead. I do, however, make exceptions for Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. How excited was I when I saw these at CVS? They are the perfect pick-me-up treat!

For real this time! I can't believe it's been almost a month since I've posted and more importantly, since I've caught up on all the blogs I normally read!
School is in full swing and I've already survived the first field trip of the year. After a week of rain, the sun finally joined us for a wonderful [and tiring] excursion to Brooklyn Botanic Garden last Friday. I was shocked at how tired I was by the time we returned to school!
One thing we missed on Friday was our usual mid-morning snack. [Though our snacks are nutritious and delicious, I've been warned of the perils of eating *student-handled* snack. Needless to say, I've already had my first cold of the season.] Each student brings in snack on an assigned day, sets it up and figures out how much each person in the class is allowed to eat. The ensuing snack signs are hilarious and adorable.
And in personal school news, Indy no longer cries at drop off and eagerly goes to his teachers in the morning. Monday, he starts attending 5 days a week! Yay, Indy!
