Cuttin' up in the Corn!

I'm so excited. Finally, I got to go to a corn maze! I've always wanted to go to one. Monday was homeschool day at a farm 1 1/2 hours away from where we live . We packed a picnic lunch and loaded up our friends. The farm was just beautiful and the people so nice. The corn maze was just one of many things to do. Of course, that's what we did first. It was really cute. At each point where you had to decide which way to go you were asked a question. One answer you turned right, the other you turned left. Thankfully there were guides throughout to help you. We especially needed help because we entered through the EXIT!!!!

After we made our way back out we went on a hay ride around the farm. What a gorgeous place. Then there were animals to pet, ducks floating around on the pond, a cow train to ride on, and a corn canon to shoot. That was really fun. After all the activities, we spread out our blanket and ate our picnic lunch under the shade of some big oak trees. While Sandy and I visited, the girls played on the slides, swings and in a huge wooden box of corn kernels. What a great day! If you're ever in southern Mississippi, be sure to visit the Seward Farm in Lucedale. They have a website that tells all about it http://www.cornfieldmaze.com/sites.php?ID=&username=mslucedale

I was just reading some of your blogs on HSB.
I just wanted to say...I speak some French and I'm an Alabama fan! Whoo hoo!

God Bless,
