Fall on the Farm!

Thursday, October 1, 2020

Our session this week is all about what is happening on the farm as Fall arrives. There are always some really cool things happening on the farm, and Fall is an especially busy time. If you are familiar with a farm,  you know how much it takes to get the work done. If you have never visited a farm, here is your chance! We’ll check-out the bean field and the cornfield, and even buzz by the beehive. And to make it even better, I have this week’s Pop’s Challenges all ready for you!
