Friday was the kindergarten Thanksgiving feast at our school. The students make their own Indian costumes:
They sing lots of songs for the parents:
I think in this song the Indians had to rest:
There was even a turkey in the show!!
After the performance, we all went back to their classroom for a traditional feast. Well, not really traditional but they did have corn on the cob, turkey rollups, cheese sticks, bananas, pumpkin pie … and chocolate chip cookies. The chocolate chip cookies were the untraditional, but very well liked, addition.
I’m always a big fan of the rolls too:
Apparently the pilgrims didn’t use utensils so this was very authentic:
In first grade they will dress up like Pilgrims. It will be cute too although Jacob is quite concerned about being a Pilgrim. He told me they watched a movie about the Pilgrims and “it was SO sad. A bunch of them died and they were SO young.”
And lastly … a bit of a Darla story:
I was visiting with one of the moms while the kids were eating. She said “Have you seen Plymouth Rock?” I thought she meant a movie. I said “no” which worked either way because I haven’t seen the rock or the movie. But then she started telling me how it was really small and kind of a disappointment and, I kid you not, it took everything in me not to bust out laughing and tell her I thought she meant a movie.
But I played it cool. Just nodded as she spoke and told her I’d have to go see Plymouth Rock sometime.
