Corn Maze Field Trip ~ Part 1

On Oct.17th, we went to the Cajun Country Corn Maze for their October Home School Day with Bayou Cajun Homeschoolers.  It’s a day set aside just for homeschoolers.  We have enjoyed going here the past few years. 

I’ve split this into 3 post due to the number of pictures I took;)

This year it was set up a little differently.  They wanted it to be a little more structured so they had different times for the activities. 

Here’s some of our kids waiting for others from our group to arrive and for the activities to begin.

Let’s get started!!!

Here’s Old McDonald welcoming everyone to the corn maze and giving us instructions along with an Ag-in-classroom talk to the children.

Yes, I make several appearances this time.  Some of the kids would ask for the camera so they could take pictures of Momma too.


Next, it’s time for the pig races.


Waiting with anticipation


On your mark, get set, GO…

On the last race, there are three adult and child teams.  The losing pig team has to kiss the pig! 

Here’s the pics of the boy and his mom kissing the pig:
