Happy Thanksgiving

[Note:  oops, forgot to post this earlier! ]

Oh, boy.  I felt like the WORST mother EVER yesterday.  The Pilgrim Play was at 2 p.m.  and all was set to go.  I wasn't feeling well and thought, "I'll set the timer and take a quick nap before we go."  Bad idea.  I must have been really tired because I woke from my nap with a start, and would you believe it was exactly 2:00 on the dot?!!  I rushed to the school (got there at 2:15!) only to find out it was all over.  What an awful feeling.  Luckily the girls' teacher invited me to come in today for their performance to the kindergarteners.  Whew!  I was seriously awake last night feeling really, really guilty for having missed it.  Their teacher wrote the script--she's so great. Don't I just have the cutest pilgrim girls ever? 

p.s. Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving.  We're off to Vermont.

Donkey vs. Elephant

Did you know that Tuesday was also election day at the Little Mr.'s "Boys School" (a group of five moms (and boys) that take turns teaching preschool)?  Kristen C. is the teacher for the next few weeks and had the boys mark their ballots and insert them into the ballot box.  Each candidate had either a donkey or an elephant next to his name.  Apparently the donkey was the favorite and won the election.  The Little Mr. told me "I choosed the donkey!  I voted for Rock O. Bama!"  Funny thing is one of the little guys chose the donkey, much to the chagrin (and may I add embarrassment!) of his father who worked on Mitt Romney's campaign!
