Hi RMT’ers! I hope you had a great weekend celebrating with family and friends. I personally ate more in the past four days than I have the last two weeks (oy!).
Speaking of oy!, I hope that those celebrating Hanukkah are having a wonderful eight days of light and love with their loved ones also, especially during this extra-special time in which it fell here in America now known as “Thanksgivukkah.”
More about our Thanksgivukkah weekend tomorrow. Today I’m here to share a few (OK, way too many) photos from T’s first school play! While last year he did put on a small in-class performance, this was T’s first time on stage in a school auditorium, which to me meant his first school play. For the performance, his class teamed up with the other Kindergarten class to put on a semi-traditional recount of the Thanksgiving story. They also sang a few seasonal tunes together, too.
Not much more to say about any of this other than it was TOO DAMN CUTE for words. Oh, and we had one student get sick mid-play (poor guy). I don’t even know if the other kids other than those, um, affected, knew it was even happening though, so that was good. That or they are empathetic well beyond their years because they were really sweet and awesome about the entire ordeal, so much so that T never asked about it later, and I don’t remember other kids asking about it after the fact either. A Happy Thanksgiving play indeed!
After the play, both classes met outside for a Thanksgiving feast! They all ate what the teachers referred to as a Friendship Stew. Each student contributed a vegetable or other ingredient to the mix and even helped to prepare the ingredients in-class the day before the feast. Through all of the kids, teachers, and parents working together, the feast was a beautiful way to round out the day’s celebration.
I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving, wherever and however much you and the kids celebrated (and ate)!
