On Wednesday, James went on his first school field trip. I remember when Annie first went on this field trip three years ago…such fond memories of when Annie completely flipped her lid at the top of the giant slide inflatable. James has been looking forward to this trip for weeks (every morning he’d say hopefully, “We going to pumpkin patch today?”), and it definitely lived up to his expectations.

After having me go down with him a couple more times, he declared, “I go by myself!” I braced myself for another deranged toddler Donkey Kong moment, but it never came. He went on the “humongous slide” by himself about 15 more times…and he’s begged to go back ever since we left. We might have to squeeze in one more trip before Halloween!
