 I got to see these sweet faces for dinner on Tuesday:
In order from left to right: Christine {from xoxoChristineMarie}, Hadar {from Miss Kindergarten}, me {from right here :)} and Michelle {from Apples and ABC's}

It was my first time meeting Christine and she is too cute! And so fun to see the other girls. I {LOVE} all the fun friends I have met because of blogging. LOVE it!

I taught my little ones a new sight word game called, "Gobble, Gobble!" And the best part {besides the fact that they are learning without realizing it} is when they say, "Gobble, Gobble" in their best turkey impression. It is entertainment!

Today was the kindergarten feast! Such a fun, fun day! We make cornbread, cranberry sauce and pumpkin pie.

The kiddos also get to eat fruit and .....popcorn. A bit embarrassed about the popcorn, as if that was served at the First Thanksgiving.....right? But we talked a lot this month about how the Native American introduced corn to the Pilgrims as well as how to plant it {Did you know putting a fish in the soil helps the corn to grow?}

Here are a few pictures!

Thanks to Doodlebugs Teaching for hosting this fun linky! Happy weekend everyone!
