I am thankful for pumpkins.

Adelai absolutely loves school.  This past week she came home with a picture that she painted and on this painting she had to say one thing she was thankful for.  Eric and I both laughed when we saw her answer...and by the title of this post, I'm sure you can figure out that her answer was pumpkins.  Not really sure why pumpkins, but this is too funny, nonetheless!!

This past Wednesday her class had a little performance in front of the whole school to celebrate Thanksgiving.  The whole fam went to watch.  She was dressed as an indian princess.  They recited a poem and they also recited Ecclesiastes 3:1, "To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven."  The poem they recited was called "Hiawatha's Childhood" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow.
By the shores of Gitche Gumee,
By the shining Big-Sea Water,
Stood the wigwam of Nokomis,
Daughter of the Moon, Nokomis.
Dark behind it rose the forest,
Rose the black and gloomy pine-trees,
Rose the firs with cones upon them;
Bright before it beat the water,
Beat the clear and sunny water,
Beat the shining Big Sea-Water.
The 4k is absolutely precious.  Here are some pictures of their performance as well as afterwards, in their costumes.
