By the time you get in 2nd and 5th grade, there's just not a lot of fun stuff going on in class for Thanksgiving. But kindergarten is a different story! Parker's class had an Indian Escapade where they made shirts, necklaces, headbands, and had a Thanksgiving snack. They all got to pick out an Indian name for their shirt, and Parker chose Red Snake. When it was time to paint his shirt he grabbed the red and went to town. No frills, no accent colors, just a red snake. He said, "That's my name and that's what I did." Point taken.
The day before Thanksgiving his class got to have a Friendship Feast with the class across the hall. They all wore their Indian shirts and had lots of yummy Thanksgiving foods to eat. Mia and Everett went with me to join Parker for this, and they were very glad because they ended up getting to eat all of his treats! Parker is our pickiest eater, so after he finished his roll and apples he handed off the rest to his siblings. At least he doesn't mind sharing!
