There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves

John has his first First Grade field trip tomorrow to a pumpkin farm! He instantly knew what he wanted -- the last page from There Was An Old Lady Who Swallowed Some Leaves which we have on the iPad thanks to the oh-so-awesome Storia app from Scholastic. He's read it twice now and I'm sure it'll be re-read many more times until he can do it without any help from me or the app itself (he can click on the word he's having trouble with and it'll read it for him).
It's a "snacky" lunch since I'm sure the kids will all be distracted by the excitement of eating at the farm. He has cheese cracker "sandwiches," the pumpkin scarecrow is cheddar on a toothpick pole, a couple of Brach's pumpkins and the alphabet cookies (only had to open two packs to get the right letters!) are sitting on Mini Slim Jims and some Indian Corn. He'll also get a frozen yogurt tube in his bag and his box of juice and an apple.
