Cajun Country Corn Maze

A  little over a week ago, our family went with Bayou Cajun Homeschoolers for the homeschool day at the Cajun Country Corn Maze.  This is an annual event that my kids don’t want to miss.  In fact, they had to convince their father to go along with us in order for them to attend and he obliged.

Here we are loaded up getting ready to head out to the maze.  Yes, daddy has a homeschool shirt too.

This year they started out the day showing the kids some different type of farm birds.

  After the pig races, we went back to the covered picnic area to get our rules and instructions from Old McDonald before entering the corn maze._A150052

(Rob stayed out under the covered picnic area while we went through the maze due to the terrain and his wheelchair.
