Last Friday I went on a field trip with my nieces and nephew. They’re home schooled and are involved in a homeschool co-op that schedules field trips for all the kids to go on together. We spent the afternoon at the Ramseyer Potato Farm.
They have all kinds of activities from corn mazes to duck racing. My sister took the two younger kids on the potato farm tour and my dad carried around baby Katie. Unfortunately it was record breaking highs on Friday with temperatures in the high 80′s, it’s a good thing we took plenty of water.
I went on the Ohio Corn Maze with my oldest niece and my mom. It’s a huge corn maze in the shape of Ohio with major landmarks as the maze trails. There were signs with information throughout the maze and the kids had a worksheet to fill out when they found each of the locations.
The farm is also a pumpkin farm, so there were fields and fields of pumpkins. We got to go on a hay ride and pick our own pumpkin from the field. Hannah picked a nice big one.
There were also other fun activities like duck racing and corn crib sandboxes. The kids enjoyed running around and being kids for the afternoon and little miss Katie enjoyed being carried around by grandpa.
When it comes to my family, you can never leave home without ending up at a local ice cream shop (a tradition thoroughly embraced by Mr Chiots).
The kids had a great time, and hopefully they learned something on their visit. They especially enjoyed spending the day with grandpa as he just got home from spending 3 months in South America.
