Turkey Day

22 Nov

I woke up this morning a little homesick.  On Thanksgiving I want to be in Minnesota with my family, eating stuffing and pies and assembling giant puzzles.

But my Thanksgiving lessons this morning at school cheered me up a bit.  First the class created a list of of all the things we are thankful for (my favorite contributions were “vacation” and “soccer”).  Then each student printed out what he felt thankful for on a Turkey feather that we glued on our colorful bird.

The second-graders really seemed to understand the concept of thankfulness and I love the universality of our thankful list–it turns out children everywhere are thankful for sweets!

Happy Turkey Day to you!

I am so thankful for my family and friends back home and for the chance to have this adventure that is my life here in Madrid.
