Happy Thanksgiving

Wanting to take a little time for an update.

Been really busy here with my classes and the kids. It also never seems to fail as we get closer to the Holidays we get busy and forget about the little things in life...like a blog post.

We are looking forward to a great day with friends. We are cooking a turkey with all the trimmings and so thankful to have new friends to share this day with. In a few hours the calm of our morning will give into the chaos of  3 - 10 year old little girls, a 6 year old girl, a 13 year old boy, and 4 adults...can't forget about the 2 dogs either. I wouldn't change a thing.

Sunday is the First Sunday of Advent and we are going to try something new. Not only will I be working with the kids on Advent and the meaning of Advent. We will be talking about the meaning of Christmas each week. We will also be incorporating different cultures around the world and how they celebrate this Holiday Season. We will learn about the Tlingit Indians, since the kids are part Tlingit. We will learn about Sweden and then Germany. Finally, we will be learning about Hanukkah. Really looking forward to exploring these cultures with the kids.

Today though they will be working on 'What they are Thankful for', some turkey activities, and letters to Santa.

Happy Thanksgiving and may your day be full of Fun, Family, Friends, Food, and Football!!
