One last look at Thanksgiving!

The kiddos enjoyed learning about Thanksgiving. Although they liked the Indian unit, they really enjoyed learning about pilgrims. I think the kids felt bad for the pilgrims because it seemed like every book we read talked about them dying.  Since we talked about the first Thanksgiving was all about giving thanks, the children wrote about the things they were thankful for.

Thanks Ms. Jumps for the cute craft idea!

Also, on Friday, Veterans came to visit the first grade classes and brought flags to hand out.

Thank you Veterans for your sacrifice!!
On a personal note, our youth group spend two days of their Thanksgiving break feeding the homeless. I am so proud that they are learning to go out and serve at an early age.
That's my son in the middle...The one that needs a haircut!
Well, it's back to the real world tomorrow. Ready or not, here we come!
