Today I had the opportunity to go to Katie’s school. They were having a Thanksgiving feast to celebrate – you guessed it thanksgiving. I walked in and I saw no faces I recognized. Many of the parents seemed to know each other, I wondered how. It really didn’t matter though, I was there for Katie, so I waited.
Mrs. Holloway came out and gave some instructions, then she saw me she smiled and told me that Katie had been asking if I would come. I’m glad I did, I didn’t want her to be the only child without a parent present. It appears that it is equally or more important to her.
The children entered the room, K4 and K5. The K4 children began with a Bible verse . “Give thanks to the Lord…” It is not the only verse Katie knows and every time I hear her recite scripture it brings great joy to my heart.
Then all the children sang a song -- “Gobble, Gobble the turkey’s in trouble…” That’s all I could catch of the song, but it was so very cute.
Then we ate and spent time with each other. It was a great time and I’m very glad I went. I know it made Katie’s day, it sure made mine.
