Sofia's preschool took a fieldtrip to Blakes Apple Orchard and Cider Mill yesterday. It was just the PERFECT Fall day. The air was crisp early on, but it turned into a beautiful 65 degree day and the kids took of their jackets. We had so much fun picking apples and pumpkins, riding the tractor train, eating doughnuts and drinking cider, and playing in the petting zoo and playground.
Sofia met her friend Zoe on the first day of class. They've been inseparable ever since. She came home after her second day and said that she and Zoe would be "best friends forever". Even the teachers get their names mixed up and always expect that they're together. I got to know Zoe, her mom Valerie, and baby sister Mia on the trip. They're a pretty fun group. FELLOW SKIERS! We'll be planning Pine Knob ski trips all Winter I'm sure.
Here are the girls on the tractor train ride.
Picking their apples...
