Madison Enjoys Her First School Fall Festival...









Things have been changing rapidly for Madison this year, since she began going to "Wee Ones". She is always learning something or going through a new experience--it's been wonderful for her.


The church that "Wee Ones" is affiliated with holds a Fall Festival each year for the little ones in their school. The Fall Festival was held last Thursday morning, and parents were urged to come and take their kids around to the booths. I went as a "tag along" to take pictures and watch Madison experience her first Fall Festival.


At first, I was hesitant to "tag along", but once I got there, I saw some other grandparents, too. A lot of the grandparents transport the little ones to and from school for their parents anyway. I was pleasantly surprised to discover that some parents had actually taken time off from work to go to the festival with their children. Yay for them!


The Fall Festival was very nice, and Madison enjoyed herself very much. There were several fun games for the children to participate in, as well as cupcake decorating and face painting. Madison's favorite activity was the "bouncy house". She actually learned how to climb the wall and slide down the bouncy slide...something she wouldn't have attempted a couple of months ago.
After the children visited each of the booths, and played in the Bouncy House for a while, they were fed a lunch of sandwiches, chips, cupcakes, brownies, and orange koolaid. The adults were invited to join their children for lunch if they wanted to.


It was great fun watching Madison experience her first Fall Festival. As I've mentioned before, it's always fun experiencing something (again) through a child's eyes...I hope this won't be the last Fall Festival for this MiMi...

Looks like she was a Busy Bee for the day. It's fun to go and watch them, isn't it? There are always several grandparents at the kids' school too. I wonder if that is because they are Christian based schools? I don't remember there being that many grandparents at the schools when my kids were little.

I'm glad she had such a good time. I remember when I was young, I'd go to the fall festival at Seckinger Elementary School. I always had a blast. I bet it's an amazing feeling to re-experience things like this through your grandchild's eyes. :-)

One cute little bumble bee! I'm with NanaDiana. I don't remember so many grandparents either. But when I was a kid, back when the dinosaurs roamed the earth, grandparents weren't as active outside the home. They just seemed older.
