Kindergarten Thanksgiving Feast

A few days after we returned home from our anniversary weekend, Cameron's class put on one of my favorite activities: the Kindergarten Thanksgiving feast!

Both Kindergarten classes get together and host this activity. Ethan, Lola and I loaded up and headed to Cameron's class a bit early to help, and we had so much fun.

The children get to choose whether they want to be pilgrims....or Indians!
Cameron's Indian name was Strong Buffalo. It definitely fits!

After a brief time of getting into 'costume' the children line up
and all go down to the gym for their presentation.

They did several readings and songs and it was sooooo good! 
My favorite song came from the old Veggie Tales show Madame Blueberry:

I thank God for this day,
for the sun in the sky,
for my mom and my dad,
For my piece of apple pie!

For my home on the ground,
for His love that's all around,
That's why I say thanks every day! 

Because a thankful heart is a happy heart,
I'm glad for what I have--
That's an easy way to start!

For the love that He shares,
'Cause He listens to my prayers,
That's why I say thanks every day!

Ethan is always so excited to be with Cameron whenever we visit the school.

Cameron took us all around the gym, and showed us the teepee....
(Of course, looking with the eyes wasn't good enough--this teepee needed to be experienced!)

....and his pilgrim that he made! He insisted I take a picture of--his words--"the two of them together".
(This happy little pilgrim is now residing in Cameron's Kindergarten memory book!)

Then it was off to the actual feast!

It was so funny to see Lola sitting like such a BIG girl on the lunch room stools!

The food was very yummy. The Kindergartners (and their parents) and the teachers did a great job!

I'm always so thankful for my children's school....days like this are NO exception!!
