The Beginning of the Thanksgiving

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.
