Thanksgiving Month: 14,15,16

Day 14: I am SO thankful that the Social Studies Fair is OVER at school! I must say, the kids did great this year! We had some of the best projects ever! And-- I am beyond thrilled that EVERY student had a project!! This is the first time I've not had a student say, "I didn't do one!" I am not personally a huge fan of this event. It is one of the county mandated things that I feel I could handle better on my own. I LOVE for the kids to do projects, but feel our time could better be used doing them IN class on topics that I know will be assessed. Alas...

Day 15: Thankful that we have a field trip today. I am EXHAUSTED after the last couple of weeks. Not that field trips aren't tiring on their own-- but it's nice to get out and get some fresh air. We went to Tuckaleechee Caverns today-- one of my fav trips!

Day 16: Thankful that today is Friday and I get to pick up Miss Priss from my Dad's. She's been there "resting" after her tube surgery. Not sure how much actual resting she has done-- but I know she has had a great time. She loves Gramma and Grandaddy!

I SO should've gone on that field trip with you. I think I may have gone when I was little, but I don't remember it.

It's a great trip. We didn't go last year for some reason... the year before I was out sick, and the year before that I was in a cast and couldn't go down all the steps... My mom and I used to go every summer-- it's not changed a bit! :)
