We piled into the school bus, three to a seat. The girls occupied one row, and the boys snagged the space behind us. Connor sat squarely between his two friends. I snagged a seat with two of his female classmates.

The bus peeled out of the parking lot, and headed north. We meandered through cornfields and country roads until we landed at our field trip destination: Pumpkinfest at Zionsville's Country Market.

The first grade students raced out of the bus and enjoyed the next several hours touring Pumpkinfest. The kids loved on farm animals, raced through a corn maze, and hopped onto a hay ride. Finally, they each selected a pumpkin souvenir to carry home.

At the end of the afternoon, the kids piled into the bus, equally exhausted and elated.

I was just grateful to have spent the day with my son.
