Kindergarten Thanksgiving

Ella and Zoe's Kindergarten had a special afternoon of activities in their classroom topped off by a Thanksgiving Concert.  I took the afternoon off from work and met Tom and my mom at their school -- it was SO nice to be the mom and not the teacher in charge of everything (so much planning/organizing/managing/clean-up goes into events like this, thank you Mrs. Olson for making everything so special) -- we had a really fun time : )

For the concert the kids all chose what head coverings they wanted to wear -- Ella wanted to be a turkey (which is just so fitting) and Zoe wanted to be a pilgrim girl (which is also so fitting).  Their performance was adorable too.

Somehow during the performance one of Ella's turkey eyes fell off so she was a cyclops turkey -- which was just so SO fitting and funny.  Also very fitting was when she looked down and found the missing eye without losing a beat ...  kind of a 'had-to-be-there-moment' but it was pretty good comedy.  A fun start to our long holiday weekend!!

Awwww, so glad they had a great day and that you went to their feast.

Hope you had a great Thanksgiving day.

Enjoy your weekend.

PS: Yes, I had a hard time when Sofi was at school and Paola was at ER. We are trying to find what she have because when she threw up her sugar levels drop off dramatically.
