This Thanksgiving program included food. We ate soup and rolls and lots of treats. Then Kaitlyn and her classmates recited the poem November by John Updike (okay, Kaitlyn didn’t actually know all the words). They also sang a song about puddles.
We are roadtriping to Utah tomorrow. The snacks are packed, but little else is. Hope everyone has a good Thanksgiving!
It’s that time of year again. Thanksgiving programs. Abby along with the rest of the 2nd graders at Kennedy Elementary entertained us with a bunch of songs and poems about being grateful.
They sung a new version of “Over the River and Through the Woods” that seems much more relevant to our modern life:
Over the freeway and through the ‘burbs
To Grandmother’s house we go.
Along half the way the road signs will say
Detour, bad roads, drive slooow oh!
Past the construction, and past the mall
And now it’s starting to snow.
Just hang on tight, the end’s in sight
We’re almost to her condo!
We will be heading to Grandmother Kraczek’s house on Wednesday. She doesn’t live in a condo, but everything else will probably be right with the song.
It’s been a quiet week here at our house. Which is nice. We are “winterizing” today. Every November we have that day where we put everything in the garage and hang up the toys and bikes so Mike can park in the garage before it starts to snow and snow. We are late actually. It is already snowing (and blowing sideways). I know what I said about getting outside in any weather- but I’ve told Boo that I’m staying inside today.
Here is a flashback to Thanksgiving 2007. Abby was 4 and Sam was 2. I think it is the only Thanksgiving we just stayed home and didn’t have anyone over. It was a simple meal and Mike and I ate on our wedding china. We only had 3 place settings then- and we only have 4 now. Below is Abby at her preschool Thanksgiving progam the same year. In another week we will see Kailtyn at her first preschool Thanksgiving program. Time flies.
