Thanksgiving - school style

Lots going on here today to celebrate the big holiday...... first it was off to preschool for a "feast" with the pilgrims and indians.  They had a full sit down meal for the kids.  All of the kids had made indian excuse me, native american costumes and pilgrim costumes to wear. 

Let's Eat!!!!

 Then it was off to see the elementary crowd perform their American Revolution Parade.  They narrated and displayed dioramas of the stories of the American Revolution.  It was very nicely done.  Can you find Emily and John among the colonists?  John played "Yankee Doodle" on his recorder for the class to sing along with him.

 When I returned home, I found the cutest little indian squaw had followed me home.  I think I'll keep her. 

 This was the outfit she made to wear to her "feast".  She opted to not make this much of a fashion statement at school.  She wore the beads and headdress to her feast, but not the indian vest.

 We are all excited for the holiday and a chance to see family.  I think right now I am most excited about a day to sleep in!!

Goodnight, folks.
