Big Pumpkin Day comes to our local primary school every October and all of the kids (along with many of their parents) get very excited. It's a day full of hayrides and fall fun and the kids even order special T-shirts to commemorate the event. But little sisters who don't go to school don't often get in on the fun.
I had one very happy little girl when we brought a real pumpkin inside and made a jack-o-lantern. I've never before carved pumpkins with the little ones I babysit, but then I never had a ready supply of pumpkins. It was a fun-filled fall day and I sent her home smiling from ear to ear.
