Pumpkin patch turns paintfest

GetAttachment12

Annually we take our girls on a field trip to the pumpkin patch.  However, this year is the VERY FIRST time in all the years we’ve done so that the weather did NOT cooperate.  We’ve had gorgeous Fall weather then entire month of October and we wake up on meeting day and it is torrential downpour.  NOT GOOD!  Needless to say, we scrambled for a back up plan (since we also had nothing else planned for the day!)  To the rescue were two co-leaders who are fortunately stay-at-home moms with a little bit of extra time during the day….and an abundance of resourcefulness!!

The girls came to our meeting space immediately following the school bell to discover a “pumpkin patch” in the back of a leader’s car!  50 pumpkins to choose from and decorate!

They appeared to have a blast and every design was unique, just like our girls!

It was ALMOST as messy as mucky mud would have been but much better for the sanity of leaders!!
