We had some beautiful weather early last week, and on one of those days I got to accompany the kindergarten to The Pumpkin Patch on Sauvie Island. We all had a great time, long bus ride included. :) 
I've never attempted a corn maze before, and going through with kids (mostly) leading the way, made it extra challenging! I didn't realize at the time that this particular one is in the shape of Charlie Brown and Snoopy, but now I want to go back and see it again. (You can see an overhead photo on their website.) It's really cool!

Of course, the real show stopper for me was this view, as seen from the hayride out to the pumpkin field. I love, love, love that tree, and debated hard about including the whole barn. Maybe another time I'll make it the only star in the show. ;)

Hi guys! Missed you!

Here's a little skyscape I finished yesterday.
The sun was setting at our backs and the sky in front of us was a happy dance of pinks and yellows and purples and blues. I just love when the whole sky participates in the sunset. It was delightful.
