Thanksgiving Feast

Lee got to celebrate Thanksgiving at preschool this morning. It was the most precious program, where the kids sang songs about Thanksgiving, and then each kid told what they were thankful for. I held my breath just knowing that Lee would hang his head and not say a word when it was his turn. Much to my surprise and delight, he said he was thankful for his dog. Next, they went to their designated tables for their feast. Lee must have been starving, because he ate most of what was on his plate and even tried a few new things!
I'm certain that the original Pilgrims and Indians were not this darn cute!
This is Lee's best girl friend, Marly Kate. He absolutely adores her and wants to sit by her at school and at church. She must be pretty fond of Lee too, because she came and grabbed his hand and said, "C'mon Lee, let my mommy take our picture." You can see that they're still holding hands here. So precious! She asked her mommy the other day to borrow her cell phone. When her mom asked what for, she said she needed to send Lee a text message. How cute is she?!? She also has a new baby brother who will be in our baby's class. It looks like our families will have double the fun with the kiddos.
Here is Lee's place card. I thought it was precious how each child wrote his own name.
This is Mrs. Connie, one of Lee's teachers. She made a beautiful Indian. You can see how much the boys adore her.
Lee is pretending to be Mrs. Connie here.
Last, but certainly not least, this is Mrs. Angie. She is a ray of sunshine and has a knack for making every person she comes in contact with feel like the most important person in the room. We have so much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving, and we will certainly be thanking our Lord for the wonderful opportunity afforded to us to send Lee to such an amazing preschool with the most gifted and caring teachers imaginable. Not only are they teaching them the skills to get ready for Kindergarten, but they are imprinting God's Word in their precious little hearts. We couldn't ask for more!
