Gobble, Gobble, Gobble

by Megan

Before Thanksgiving break, Carter’s Kindergarten class (along with two other classes) invited parents and friends to come to a Thanksgiving play and feast!

My little guy chose to be a pilgrim boy.

It also happened to be “jersey” day at school, so he was a Red Sox pilgrim. Hey, it kind of works, right? Massachusetts…

During the play, whenever the teacher reading the script said, “the pilgrim men…,” he (and the other pilgrim boys) said, “A-hunting we will go!” And they made the motion he’s making here, of pulling back a bow and arrow.

The play was adorable. They had learned 8 songs, which were intertwined with a story about the pilgrims and Indians and how they caught turkeys for their Thanksgiving dinner.

Here is a little snippet of the play. The whole thing was only 9 minutes long, but I narrowed it down to under two minutes:

After the Thanksgiving play, we walked down to Carter’s classroom to give him a hug before we left. He gave his sister his pilgrim hat and a flower.

A day or two later we realized that someone had been paying attention when we were practicing the turkey songs!

All these Kindergarten goings-on make me feel like I’m officially a mom! The other day Carter brought home his first graded assignment: 100% on a spelling test! So proud. On the fridge it went!

Love my little ones! They are growing up so fast!
