Thank you, Lois!!!
And Thank You, Kelsey Lois!!!
Kelsey made 4 pies, a pumpkin roll, mashed potatoes, sweet potato casserole, green beans, corn, stuffing, rolls, and gravy. If it hadn’t been for Kelsey, we wouldn’t have had a Thanksgiving meal. I did the rest of the food, but the older girls were both sick. We had several sickies that day, but we praised the Lord and enjoyed His abundant provision and had a good day anyway.
And that was our Happy Thanksgiving Day!
Throughout November we studied the Pilgrims. We made a lighthearted unit study by reading library books about the Pilgrims and Indians and listening to “The Stories of the Pilgrims” by Jim Hodges. I was on the Launch Team for the audio, so I was blessed to have a copy of it for free. We learned a lot about the Pilgrims through the stories. Each chapter gave historical information in story form and followed the lives of the Pilgrim children from Scrooby, England to the landing in the New World and beyond. It was very interesting and informative.
We watched the Charlie Brown special called “This is America, Charlie Brown: The Mayflower Voyagers”.
We watched “The Mayflower Mouse”.
We watched “A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving” on Thanksgiving Day.
We made hand turkeys.
We made turkey cookies.
Most of all, we made memories. We had a wonderful Thanksgiving Day!
